The announcement follows Marriott’s recently completed acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
With 24 hotels currently in operation and a pipeline of signed and approved deals totalling an additional 18 properties, Marriott says it is on track to grow to 50 hotels over the next four years across the region, which includes Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and New Caledonia.
The current pipeline properties will provide more than 2,500 hotel jobs and add more than 4,500 rooms.
The company has plans to enter emerging primary and secondary destinations, with the signings of Four Points by Sheraton Parramatta, The Westin Resort and Spa Coolum, Aloft Adelaide and Sheraton Adelaide Hotel.
Three additional brands, Aloft, W and The Ritz-Carlton are expected to be introduced to the region by the end of 2020, with the W Brisbane and Aloft Perth scheduled to open in 2017, followed by Aloft Melbourne South Yarra and Aloft Adelaide in 2019, and The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne and The Ritz-Carlton, Perth slated for 2020.
