In a groundbreaking initiative that will impact up to 50 new hotels in the brand’s portfolio in the coming year, Marriott is making a significant investment in using modular technology to build its new hotel rooms.
Marriott’s innovative new rooms are assembled entirely off site by three different modular building partners. And we mean entirely: the rooms arrive at the construction site fully constructed including bed, desk and toilet, right down to sheets and pillows in the closet and a high-definition television ready for viewing. Then Marriott’s construction crews simply slot the rooms into place in a hyper-efficient construction model called “stacking.”
