PICK THE BIGGEST HOTE­LIER ON THE PLANET

Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -

Throw a dart at a world map, and it’s likely there will be a Mar­riott group ho­tel in the vicin­ity of where it lands... Hav­ing ac­quired the Star­wood port­fo­lio in Septem­ber, Mar­riott In­ter­na­tional (which in­cludes brands such as Meri­dien, Sher­a­ton, W Ho­tels, The Ritz-Carl­ton and our own Protea Ho­tels) is now the biggest hote­lier on the planet, with a net­work of more than 5 700 prop­er­ties in 110 coun­tries (that’s more than 1,2 mil­lion rooms). In SA, plans are al­ready afoot for new prop­er­ties at Mel­rose Arch in Joburg and in Cape Town’s Rogge­baai/Fore­shore precinct. mar­riott.com
