Marriott International Inc. headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, announced plans to convert three luxury properties in the U.S. to brands within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio this summer. These include The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California; Turtle Bay Resort in Kahuku, Hawaii; and Conrad New York Midtown in New York City, New York.

Conrad New York Midtown joined the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio on June 5 under the Luxury Collection brand—the hotel is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan near Central Park, Times Square, the Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, and Radio City Music Hall. It is now known as The Luxury Collection Hotel Midtown Manhattan and features 54 floors of guest rooms and amenities.

The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach will join Marriott’s luxury portfolio on July 1. It will continue to be owned by The Irvine Co. while being managed by Marriott, and is expected to be converted to a St. Regis hotel at a later date. It sits on 504 acres of land and features two 18-hole golf courses, a wide array of bungalows and villas for overnight stays, and more than 23,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

Hawaii’s Turtle Bay Resort, on the North Shore of Oahu, is expected to join The Ritz-Carlton brand later this summer, rebranding to The Ritz-Carlton O’ahu, Turtle Bay. Leisure and business visitors of the resort will find seven secluded beaches within walking distance, oceanfront bungalows and guest rooms with ocean views, and more than 250,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space. Marriott’s assumption of management at the resort will coincide with Host Hotels & Resorts Inc.’s purchase of the property later this summer.

“Strengthening and growing our luxury pipeline is a top priority for the company, and I’m proud that Marriott remains the clear industry leader in the segment,” says Dana Jacobsohn, chief development officer of Marriott’s North America luxury brands and global mixed-use properties in the U.S. and Canada. “We look forward to working closely with our owners and franchises to provide best-in-class service and experiences to guests from around the world seeking out these incredible destinations.”
