Renaissance Bo'ao Resort & Spa to open in China

Marriott International Inc. has announced it has reached the milestone figure of 250 open and signed hotels in Asia, with the 250th hotel to be located in Bo’ao in China. This represents 129 open hotels plus its development pipeline of 121 projects, totaling more than 75,000 rooms in 15 countries.

While Asia continues to deliver robust growth, China remains the strongest driver and Marriott International has ambitious plans in the country. With the portfolio expected to double from the current 58 open hotels in the next three to four years, Marriott will increase its work force to well over 70,000 associates over the same time period.
