Marriott is SO much more than just Marriott!

Ok, so if you live in NJ and you’ve driven the GSP lately you’ll know why it took us over two hours to go to and from the Marriott training in West Orange last week. Whoever decided on that construction plan can NOT be very popular right now.  The time (and anxiety…) spent getting to this exclusive, Invite-Only training session though was truly WORTH. EVERY. MINUTE!  I’m very excited to share some highlights!

Marriott coins themselves as the “Future of Travel” for a reason, with over 15 brands under the Marriott umbrella, they have something for everyone. Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott, Courtyard Marriott, Renaissance, AutoGraph Collection, the list goes on and on. My clients frequently enjoy their properties in Aruba, St. Thomas (2 Properties, 1 Price!), Puerto Rico (No Passports!), Grand Cayman and even Marco Island, FL, but I learned even more about additional exclusive properties of interest:

Costa Rica is continuing as a very popular place for honeymoons and family travel. JW Marriott Guancaste boasts the only ocean front rooms in Guancaste without an obstructed view. They offer my clients a meal plan option, has the largest spa and infinity pool in the area, sits on a stunning beach and they will happily transfer you to town where you can enjoy the awesome culinary scene or take some surfing lessons!

Ireland is a top destination on the Bucket List of my clients for a good reason! The Renaissance property in Dublin is the 2nd oldest hotel in the city, boasting amazing history and 5* status. You can even explore your Irish roots right from the hotel as they have a resident genealogist there to help you!

If you prefer to stay outside of Dublin, but not too far, 30 Minutes south you’ll find an Autograph property which has Ireland’s highest waterfall right on the estate! Here you can enjoy 1000 acres, 2 golf courses, archery, horses, and fish then bring it to the Head Chef so he can cook your catch for dinner. This authentic experience is awaiting you and voted as one of the top 10 mansions in the world!  This is an exquisite place for you to ask me about your destination wedding!  You could also ask me about marrying in a courtyard in Paris or their property right on Park Lane in the heart of Mayfair too.  So many properties with TOP amenities are available to you, my clients!

Florida – When we think Florida we always think Miami as part of the fun, right? Their Fairmont property in Miami is perfect for a getaway and even for my clients’ pre-post stay when cruising in and out of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. Sitting on 300 acres, this property has 2 golf courses, award winning spa with a lazy river, slides and a serenity pool.  They aren’t on the beach, but they own the beach which is just a short shuttle ride away. This property also is very family friendly. They have a Kids in the Kitchen program where the resort chefs take children from the garden to table together!  This is another STUNNING property to consider for a group, destination wedding, family or romantic getaway!

My golf groups know that one of the best places to have me send them for their Florida Golf Getaway is Marriott’s Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa. A top golf destination this resort in NE Florida has amazing weather, service and rates all year round. It’s your home away from home! 

Private Island Resort – looking for a unique island vacation?  Marriott has it for you with their Scrub Island property in the British Virgin Islands. This boutique property has 52 rooms and 8 villas.  Villas are another great way to vacation with a group of couples, family or a destination wedding.  BVI is also a fabulous snorkeling, scuba and adventure island!

Puerto Vallarta – Last but not least for my highlights includes the all-inclusive CasaMagna Marriott in Puerto Vallarta. Voted as the friendliest destination in the world by TripAdvisor, Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful place to see and Marriott a wonderful option for where to have me book your stay. 100% of the rooms have a private balcony and you can enjoy their swimmable beach all day! Another stunning option for honeymoons, destination weddings and family vacations. Don’t forget to ask me what time of year you can enjoy whale watching or their sea turtle rescue and release program!  Oh, and the Tequila tasting schedule!!
