MARRIOTT plans to double its portfolio in Europe by 2015.  Amy McPherson, President and Managing Director of Marriott International Europe, made the announcement at the International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin.  Marriott has been in Europe for 35 years and is now represented by 174 hotels.  Seven of Marriott’s 18 brands are in Europe: Ritz-Carlton, Bvlgari, JW Marriott, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance Hotels, Courtyard by Marriott and Marriott Executive Apartments. In addition, the first European Residence Inn, an extended-stay brand, will open in Munich in 2012.  The development pipeline includes nearly 30 projects including the Renaissance Moscow Monarch Center Hotel (2010), the Courtyard by Marriott Budapest (2010) and the JW Marriott Hotel Ankara (2010). www.marriott.com
