Pride Month 2018 saw a record amount of activity from our chapters! From Seattle to Salt Lake, Omaha to Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale to London, our beautiful associates and franchise employees showed their Pride in support of Marriott's continued diversity & inclusion efforts. We love showing our communities how #LoveTravels
