Marriott has launched a new Web site, referring to the site as “Your front door to Marriott Global News and Conversation” and a “social and multimedia hub.” Called Marriott News Center, the Web site gathers all of Marriott’s online news, photos, videos, blogs, Twitter feeds and more to become the first stop for all Marriott news.
Marriott Rewards members can access the Web pages for the program through a link at the top of the home page. And, on the right of the Marriott News Center home page, you can click “Marriott Rewards” on the most popular topics list to access the latest news from Marriott Rewards, which is mostly the most current bonus promotions. Got to http://news.marriott.com to access this new site.
Bottom line: The site is heavy with videos and links and certainly does have a Web 2.0 feel to it. Kathleen Matthews, Executive Vice President of Global Communications and Public Affairs for Marriott says, “The site is intended to transcend generations and communications platforms to reach and engage all audiences.”
We say, so far, so good. You can sign up for an RSS feed and, as Matthews says, also be among the first to join the global conversation about the world of Marriott and hospitality.
