MILE­STONES The ho­tel be­he­moth is stream­lin­ing con­struc­tion with a new fo­cus on mod­u­lar rooms. The com­pany will sign 50 ho­tel deals by the end of 2017 that use pre­fab spa­ces. So far, Mar­riott is us­ing the stacked models for Court­yard, AC Ho­tels, and Fair­field brands.

CHAL­LENGES De­spite Mar­riott’s ef­forts to wrest cus­tomers back from on­line book­ing sites like Ex­pe­dia and Price­line, a re­cent study found that on­line agen­cies still de­liver bet­ter deals for trav­el­ers.
