These statements relate to historical performance of franchised North American System hotels that satisfy certain criteria as detailed above and are not guarantees of future performance. The figures above were based on hotels with at least 2 years of operating results. Hotels typically achieve lower results in their first year of operation. We do not claim or expect that you can or will expect to achieve the same average occupancy rate, average daily room rate, average RevPAR, RevPAR Index, reservations, or Marriott Rewards room nights, as these figures will vary from hotel to hotel and will depend upon many variables and factors, including size, location, seasonality, competition, general economic conditions, the length of time your hotel has been open or affiliated with us, the condition and attractiveness of the hotel, the perception of your hotel by customers utilizing our distribution channels, the reputation for quality of service at the hotel, how effectively you participate in our programs and market your affiliation with us, and the efficiency with which you operate your hotel. Operating results are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including economic conditions, public reaction to terrorist attacks and political unrest, supply and demand changes for hotel rooms, competitive conditions in the hospitality industry, relationships with customers and property owners, and the availability of capital.
