Milestone is proud to be partnered with Marriott on how they are helping improve guest comfort and safety during their stay.
This execution is born out of Milestone’s Crisis-Recovery-Growth initiative, which was created to help customers develop plans and assets to attract customers and get the booking back on track. You can read more about it in our CRG article.
As part of the CRG framework, Milestone created a series of webinars with top industry speakers, like Chip Rogers of AHLA, Chip Conley, formerly of Joie de Vivre, and Bob Gilbert of HSMAI.
Milestone provided recovery content and solutions for hundreds of customers and properties, and we are gratified to see they are in a better position as the room occupancy rates returned to the 50.1% level in August, according to STR.

To take advantage of the new “What To Expect” pages, customers can simply visit the website of the specific hotel they are interested in. They should find links to both general travel guidance and the property’s individual COVID-19 updates in a hard-to-miss red box just under the fields to input stay dates. For instance, the JW Marriott Chicago’s page has the following information current at time of publication.
