Book It!Marriott

With more than 3,000 properties in 68 countries and territories worldwide, Marriott needed a user interface design that could handle a dozen brand identities and be flexible enough to grow over time. The result is a system that allows for brand distinction while highlighting individual property assets.

The Challenge

Marriott International, Inc. engaged NavigationArts to lead a full redesign of the Marriott hotel websites. The NavigationArts UX team integrated into Marriott’s eCommerce group to collaborate on the full end to end process. Marriott’s objectives for its network of 3,000 properties and data sources included:

  • Brand and property differentiation
  • Content restructuring
  • Site expansion
  • Complete visual redesign

The Solution

NavigationArts worked closely with Marriott user experience and development teams to conduct a requirements analysis and exploration process that included user research, joint application development sessions, and collaboration with brand leaders. NavigationArts developed comprehensive documentation of functional and visual specifications for the redesign of Marriott’s hotel and resort websites.

The NavigationArts team created a system that allowed for brand distinction and highlighted property assets. The final product includes the following brands:

  • JW Marriott
  • The Autograph Collection
  • Marriott Hotels & Resorts
  • Renaissance Hotels
  • Marriott Vacation Club
  • Marriott Executive Apartments
  • Courtyard
  • SpringHill Suites
  • Residence Inn
  • Fairfield Inn
  • TownePlace Suites

Project Results Included:

  • Enhanced user experience that supports brand differentiation while maintaining the integrity of Marriott.com’s overarching look and feel across all sites
  • An extendable platform with the ability to support all new content and brand variations and to highlight unique offerings from each hotel
  • Improved integration with the reservations process for richer interactions
  • Web Marketing Association Award for Hotel and Lodging Standard of Excellence
