Marriott International has signed 21 new management contracts in the Asia-Pacific region. All of the properties are scheduled to open by the end of 2013, representing 7,000 new guest rooms on top of the 37-hotel, 9,400-room pipeline already under development for Marriott in the area. Properties covered under the announcement include two JW Marriotts, two Renaissance Hotels and 10 "upscale Marriott hotels" in China, the Philippines and Thailand, and seven Courtyard by Marriott hotels in Cambodia, China and India. The Cambodia property will be Marriott's first in that country.
