Refreshed Web Site Promotes LGBT Deals and Destinations
Marriott International, Inc. announced today the relaunch and fresh new look for their popular site www.marriott.com/gaytravel, the first hospitality portal tailored for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) customers worldwide in English and four other languages: French, Spanish, German and Portuguese.
First developed in 2010, the “redesigned website is our way to express Marriott’s loyalty and commitment to all our guests,” said Randy Griffin, Vice President, Global Sales, Marriott International, Inc. “In 2012, our aspiration will be to ensure www.marriott.com/gaytravel is the trusted and welcoming source for leisure, business and group travel for the LGBT community as we do for all our customers.”
Like marriott.com, the renewed site will introduce new hotel openings and special events, destinations and ongoing deals and promotions. The site also offers unique hospitality, wedding and honeymoon packages showcasing popular destinations and resorts worldwide. Marriott’s premiere hotels from coast-to- coast frequently host galas and events on behalf of LGBT community leaders including the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), GLAAD, PFLAG, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, among others.
Marriott remains among the corporations earning high marks by the HRC Corporate Equality Index year after year, and for several years, it also has been a member of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, committed to diverse suppliers including LGBT businesses.
