Marriott Vacations Worldwide has announced an extension to their Vacation Club brand with the addition of Marriott Vacation Club Pulse. The five announced properties that are included as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse destinations are located in New York City, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Boston and South Beach, Florida.
In Marriott’s press release Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide said, “Our Owners and guests are eager to explore new places and try new experiences, especially those in more urban locations. Marriott Vacation Club Pulse expands vacation choices into even more destinations, all with a very unique style. Now, our guests can truly immerse themselves in the cultures, local scenes and neighborhoods of their favorite cities.”
These new city destinations include four recent acquisitions by Marriott in New York, San Diego, Washington, D.C. and South Beach. In Boston, the Custom House is now included as a Marriott Vacation Club Pulse location. Marriott Vacation Club Destinations owners can use their points to book their vacations at these new urban locations now (except San Diego which is available beginning in July).
Marriott also updated investors recently on their acquisition of new units on the Big Island of Hawaii in the Waikoloa hotel. Stephen P. Weisz said in their earnings call that they have reached an agreement with the owner of the hotel to purchase 112 one and two bedroom timeshare units at the property when their conversion is completed. The expected completion date for these units is July 2017. Marriott has begun construction of a permanent sales center to open this fall. It is interesting to note that this timeline is in line with what Marriott announced in March of 2015.
