What do the Ritz-Carlton, Marriott Vacation Club, Courtyard and 175 hotel properties among the best-known brands have in common? They are participating in a ground-swell of a movement to Clean the World. I came across this heart-warming story on Twitter of all places and followed the links to the very popular, Barbara DeLollis who pens the USAToday column, Hotel Check-In* and the National Geographic Traveller**.
The Orlando Marriott World Center and the Marriott Vacation Clubs at Sabal, Royal and Imperial Palms are among the participating hotels.*** Kudos to Marriott in Florida for doing the right thing. For a list of participating brands, see Clean the World. ****
What do you think? Is Marriott doing the right thing?
