Right now, the hospitality industry and public lands need to work together more than ever. That’s why Marriot Bonvoy just announced a marketing partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service. The partnership includes the unveiling of a new dedicated travel planning website that makes it easy for members to find discounted rates for stays at Marriott properties located near national parks. It also allows users to redeem hotel points for America the Beautiful passes — the annual passes for national parks and federal recreational lands.
Brian King, the Global Officer of Digital Distribution, Revenue Strategy & Global Sales, Marriott International, said, “We are thrilled to offer Marriott Bonvoy members a convenient way to plan road trips and explore historical sites and national wonders with their friends and families with this one-of-a-kind travel partnership. The opportunity to experience breathtaking scenery in pristine wilderness settings while giving back to the National Park Foundation is invaluable and will help preserve parks for future adventure seekers.”
The website will also provide travel tips from Marriott Bonvoy Traveler, including trip planning guides from local experts.
According to Stefanie Mathew, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at the National Park Foundation, “The National Park Foundation is thankful to Marriott Bonvoy for not only offering members a nearby place to rest their head after a day full of park adventures, but also the support to help ensure these treasured natural and cultural sites are protected now and into the future.”
