Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) today reported second quarter 2021 results.

Anthony Capuano, Chief Executive Officer, said, “The rate of global lodging recovery accelerated during the second quarter and momentum has continued into July. We are particularly pleased with the resilience of RevPAR1 in markets where consumers feel safe traveling. Worldwide occupancy continued to build, reaching 51 percent for the quarter. We also saw strong improvement in global average daily rate in the second quarter, which was down only 17 percent compared to the second quarter of 2019.

“The swift resurgence of lodging demand once the virus has been largely contained and restrictions have eased has been most evident in Mainland China. Second quarter RevPAR in Mainland China was on par with the second quarter of 2019, and in April, for the first time since the pandemic began, leisure, business transient and group room nights were all ahead of 2019 levels.

“In our largest region, the U.S. & Canada, demand stepped up significantly during the quarter, particularly at our resorts. Leisure demand once again led the way, although business transient and group demand also continued to grow. We are seeing more blending of trip purposes, a trend we expect will continue.

“Owners continue to seek out our brands. Year to date through June, rooms signed were 36 percent ahead of the same period in 2020 and more than 30 percent of rooms signed in the first half of this year are conversions. We have also seen strong openings, with approximately 49,000 rooms added to our system in the first six months of the year. For the full year 2021, we continue to expect gross rooms growth will accelerate to approximately 6 percent, with net rooms growth now expected to be towards the top end of the 3 to 3.5 percent range.

“Marriott Bonvoy hit 153 million members by quarter’s end. We continue to focus on engaging with our loyal customers through multiple offerings beyond hotel stays. Second quarter co-brand credit card fees surpassed 2019 second quarter fees, thanks to strong cardholder spend and robust global cardholder acquisitions. Our recent international credit card launches in South Korea and Mexico have seen strong initial success as has our new Uber collaboration in the U.S. Last week, we began offering U.S. customers booking through our digital channels the opportunity to purchase Allianz travel insurance products, providing peace of mind to our customers throughout the travel journey.

“While we are keeping a close eye on the Delta and other variant strains, we are optimistic that the upward trajectory of the global recovery will continue. We anticipate that more workers returning to their offices on a hybrid basis will serve as a catalyst for a meaningful increase in business transient and group demand in the fall. Many of our associates are starting to get back on the road, and our largest corporate clients tell us they are beginning to do the same. Our recovery to date has shown us that there is tremendous pent-up demand for the travel experiences we consistently provide. Timelines are hard to predict and will continue to vary by region, but I believe that we are on our way to a full global recovery.”
