In Europe, Marriott is represented by over 300 properties with more than 57,000 rooms across 13 brands. The company has signed or opened over 34,000 new rooms since 2010. This exciting growth is being boosted by the launch of our four new lifestyle brands — EDITION, Autograph Collection, AC Hotels, and Moxy Hotels.
In 2014, Marriott completed the acquisition of the Protea Hotels brand, which nearly doubled its distribution in the Middle East and Africa to over 24,000 rooms, making the company the largest hotelier on the African continent.
