Bethesda, MD – (October 8, 2020) – Recent research from the Institute for Applied Positive Research shows 97 percent of people surveyed said having a trip planned made them happy.* Today, in appreciation of travelers’ aspirations, Marriott Bonvoy is kicking off a Week of Wonders from October 8 – 15, 2020. The celebration is aimed at bringing members joy and happiness by encouraging travel and providing opportunity to experience the pleasures of travel in your own home. Each day this week will feature a different Wonder with themes such as inspiration, comfort, discovery, rejuvenation and delight. These Wonders will include great travel offers globally at renowned brands that are part of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio including The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, EDITION and W Hotels.
“We are all yearning for the time when we can again freely travel and explore the world,” said David Flueck, Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty, Marriott International. “With Week of Wonders, we are bringing members great offers, content and experiences across the entire Marriott Bonvoy portfolio to inspire travelers to dream of travel or recreate their favorite travel experiences at home.”
Inspiration: Marriott Bonvoy is premiering several new original short films in the next StoryBooked series where viewers will feel inspired watching life-changing journeys including a Native American horse trainer who travels to ride with gauchos in Patagonia, Argentina, an American chef raised in Brooklyn who travels to Seoul, South Korea to explore his heritage through food and other films.
Additionally, even as sports stadiums stand empty, passionate fans who travel to watch their teams play can still feel a part of the action knowing there will be a seat waiting for them in the future. Manchester United fans can elevate their match experience at home by having their names appear on the pitchside advertising boards during a live match at Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams.
