Marriott owners and fans: rejoice! Marriott Vacation Club plans to expand in three key markets. First, the company indicated that they have acquired a property in South Beach, Florida. This was a long anticipated move by Marriott. Second, Marriott Vacation Club has taken over the management of a property in New York City. Third, Marriott announced plans to expand their existing resort: Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club in Oahu.
In 2015, Marriott said that they planned to acquire a 182-unit property in South Beach, Florida. Recently, Marriott indicated that this sale would not be proceeding. Instead, Marriott purchased The Edgewater Hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida. The Edgewater was built in 1936 and offers 49 studios and suites. These units are available for booking through the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Exchange Program as well as through Interval International. Now branded as Marriott Vacation Club, South Beach, the property is located on the 1400 block of Ocean Drive and offers a rich South Beach experience.
Earlier in 2016, Marriott announced an expansion in New York City with the management of The Strand Hotel. The Strand Hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan on 37th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Marriott plans to purchase the 176-unit hotel over time, beginning in 2018. It will be rebranded as a Marriott Vacation Club destination this month and is already available to existing owners to book through the Destinations Exchange Program.
Meanwhile in Hawaii, Marriott Vacations Worldwide says that they plan to add as many as 202 new timeshare units to their popular Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club in Oahu. Currently Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club has over 500 villas. Oahu is one of the most popular destinations in Hawaii and the Ko’Olina Beach Club has been a staple for families and couples alike.
