Marriott Vacations Worldwide introduces The Marriott Vacation Clubs™ Vacation Ownership Portfolio
The rebranded portfolio brings together the signature vacation ownership brands Marriott Vacation Club®, Sheraton® Vacation Club, and Westin® Vacation Club under one name
Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: VAC), a leader in leisure travel with a portfolio of trusted, globally-recognized travel brands, today introduces The Marriott Vacation Clubs™, the collection of more than 90 premium Marriott, Sheraton, and Westin Vacation Club branded resorts. The Marriott Vacation Clubs™ is part of Marriott Bonvoy's® portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands, and offers Marriott Bonvoy members and guests more options for leisure travel with some of the most trusted brand names in travel. The introduction of The Marriott Vacation Clubs™ is being highlighted with a new marketing campaign called More Vacations to Love that tells the story of the future of vacation ownership and its evolution to accommodate the next generation of owners and travelers.
“As timeshare ownership continues to grow, especially amongst a younger demographic, we are focused on delivering leisure travel experiences that meet the needs of today’s traveler,” says Lori Gustafson, EVP, Chief Brand and Digital Officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “Our goal in aligning our signature brands under The Marriott Vacation Clubs moniker is to distinguish Marriott’s vacation ownership options within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, making it easier for Marriott Bonvoy members and general travelers to understand what properties and experiences are available as either an Owner or a rental guest.”
With villa resorts throughout the U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Central America, Asia and Australia, The Marriott Vacation Clubs portfolio of brands appeals to those seeking spacious condo-like accommodations, personalization, and access to new destinations and experiences. Each of the three trusted brands offers its own unique personality and amenities, coupled with the highest level of service with the trusted Marriott® name. Eligible Owners of The Marriott Vacation Clubs vacation ownership plans can elect to participate in Abound by Marriott Vacations™, a new Owner benefit and exchange program that allows seamless travel among the three brands, access to properties within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, and other travel experiences such as cruises, guided and culinary tours, premiere events, outdoor adventures, and more.
