Welcoming The Collaboration Generation Into More Marriott Hotels -- Workspace On Demand Expands

Stocks in this article: MAR





BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With today's mobile technology and a renewed entrepreneurial spirit, work happens everywhere and at any time. Leading with its flagship Marriott Hotels' brand, Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) is expanding its Workspace on Demand by Marriott program to select hotels throughout Northern and Southern California, Washington DC metro area, the New York metro area, Chicago and Dallas as well as a growing number of other markets throughout the US.

Customers needing a place to collaborate with colleagues or work individually can book spaces in Marriott Hotels' thoughtfully designed Greatroom lobbies -- with their comfortable seating, lots of food and beverage options and free WiFi -- or in a small meeting space. Workspace On Demand by Marriott powered by LiquidSpace makes reserving these places to work, often for free, as easy as booking a guest room using your desktop, laptop or smartphone.

For a limited time, use a Visa® card and receive 20 percent off, up to $50, the first time you book Workspace On Demand by Marriott.  Visit www.WorkspaceOnDemand.marriott.com and use the code WORKONDEMAND.

The way people work today is changing, whether it is entrepreneurs and independent consultants or mobile employees at large corporations. By 2015, 1.3 billion people worldwide will be mobile workers 1.  With downsizing, larger companies are reducing office space. An estimated more than 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies now have alternative workplace or mobile workforce policies in place 2

"The trends are telling.  The way people work is changing.  And we're right there with them.  Through Workspace On Demand by Marriott, we are enabling people to find and book workspaces when they need them," said Paul Cahill, Brand Vice President, Marriott Hotels.  "We are challenging the notion that you have to be a hotel guest to use the hotel.  We are opening the doors and saying, 'Come in, work in our lobbies and use our free WiFi.  Gather your team in our meeting rooms, whether it is all day or just for an hour.'  We made the process easy and are giving our customers the ability to book on whatever device they prefer."

Workspace on Demand by Marriott is a collaboration between Marriott and LiquidSpace, a mobile/web app that connects real people to great spaces to work and meet.
