The company signed 815 agreements, representing more than 136,000 rooms, marking the seventh consecutive year of record-breaking volume of organic rooms signings.
Growth was fuelled by unprecedented levels of organic rooms signed in each of the company’s international regions. During 2019, the company added 516 properties with more than 78,000 rooms in 60 countries and territories – an average of one new property every 17 hours.
At the end of 2019, Marriott International’s worldwide system consisted of more than 7,300 properties and roughly 1,38 million rooms in 134 countries and territories. More than half of the company’s record global development pipeline is located outside North America.
