  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Marriott International has been named to the FORTUNE 500.

It is ranking 219 overall, up from 2013’s ranking of 230, and ranking as the top hotel company in the hotels, casinos and resorts category. Marriott is also the highest ranked company on the list with its headquarters in the Washington, DC-area.

FORTUNE magazine’s annual selection of the nation's largest companies, ranked by revenue, includes a survey of companies that are incorporated in the U.S. and operate in the U.S. and file financial statements with a government agency.


Marriott is also included on this year’s FORTUNE “The Best Places to Work” list and the magazine’s The World’s Most Admired List, which measures a company’s corporate reputation.

The company recently made headlines announcing Atlantis, Paradise Island in the Bahamas joining its Autograph Collection and in April when it became the largest hotel company in Africa after completing the acquisition of the Protea Hospitality Group. Marriott has more than 4,000 properties and more than 690,000 rooms in 78 countries and territories around the world. And, as of the end of quarter one, the company had more than 200,000 rooms in its global development pipeline, a 35 percent increase from a year ago.
