Marriott’s next target: The Philippines

Marriott International has chosen The Philippines as its next target for expansion. The hotel company has announced that it will more than triple its hotel portfolio in the Philippines in the next five years.

Also, the hotel company will launch five of its brands in this country, including Ritz-Carlton, Element and Westin. Altogether, the Marriott chain expects to open 14 more properties by the end of 2024, adding more than 3,700 new rooms to its inventory in the country.

Earlier this year, Marriott opened its 390-room Sheraton Manila. The new hotel is part of the integrated complex, Resorts World Manila, at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. Later this year, Sheraton Manila Bay expects to open for business. Marriott’s Westin brand will open the Westin Manila Sonata Place in 2021.

For its other new business ventures, the company is specifically looking outside Philippines’ capital of Manila. Marriott hopes to debut in five new destinations – Caticlan, Cebu, Davao, Mactan and Palawan.
