Travelers can choose from more than 340 properties across four European markets with the ability to earn and redeem points across the company’s loyalty platform, including Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG). This follows on the heels of a five-month pilot initiated earlier this year in collaboration with Hostmaker, a London-based home rental sharing management company.
Adam Malamut, chief customer experience officer, Marriott International, said, “Following the positive customer feedback from our pilot in London, we are excited to extend Tribute Portfolio Homes to new markets together with Hostmaker.” Having met quality, safety and security standards, selected properties feature one bedroom or more, full kitchens and in-unit laundry. Guests also have access to 24/7 support as well as an in-person welcome/check-in experience. Insights from the pilot program, according to Marriott, were: on average guests stayed more than twice the typical hotel length of stay; and most guests sought units with multiple bedrooms.
