Stories of Excellence

The Marriott Awards of Excellence were established to recognize the “best of the best” at Marriott International. Each year, we honor a group of associates for outstanding customer service, corporate citizenship, or diversity and inclusion efforts. This year we celebrate our 90th anniversary of being in business; 90 years of putting people first. Flown in from around the globe, the honorees and their families are treated to an evening of celebration and praise featuring Marriott senior leadership and hundreds of fellow associates. Their stories exemplify the core values of Marriott International.
