The collection offers Owners, Members and guests curated experiences in the heart of vibrant cities.

ORLANDO – The Marriott Vacation Clubs, a portfolio of vacation ownership brands operated by Marriott Vacations Worldwide, understands there is a difference between visiting a city and seeing its sites, and truly experiencing it by discovering its secrets. With that in mind, today the company announces The Marriott Vacation Clubs City Collection. This collection consists of Marriott Vacation Club branded properties, including those formerly branded as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, in seven vibrant cities with expansion plans that will also include other branded vacation club properties in highly sought after urban areas.

As part of the City Collection’s growing portfolio, Marriott Vacation Club expects to open a seven-story vacation ownership property in Waikiki later this year. Located on the south shore of Honolulu, the new property plans to have two floors of retail and approximately 110 guestrooms, featuring a mix of one-bedroom and studio units. Proposed rooftop amenities include a pool, fitness center and bar. Located on Kalakaua Avenue, one of Honolulu’s best-known retail avenues, the new property is also expected to house a 10,000-square-foot sales gallery where Owners, Members and guests can learn more about the benefits of vacation ownership. Reservations are now open for future rental stays on Marriott.com, and Owners in Abound by Marriott Vacations can use Club Points to reserve stays with check-ins beginning October 4, 2024.

“As a metropolitan complement to our global resort portfolio, The Marriott Vacation Clubs City Collection brings our Owners, Members and guests to the city – and the city to our Owners, Members and guests – by offering stylish stays that are in the heart of local interests, transportation and attractions, reflecting the spirit and culture of their dynamic surroundings,” said Lori Gustafson, Chief Membership & Commercial Services Officer at Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “We know our Owners, Members and guests see great value in being close to the action, so we will continue to look for opportunities to expand our city offerings over the coming years.”

The Marriott Vacation Clubs has also announced plans to add the first two Westin Vacation Club properties to its City Collection portfolio. Expected to begin development in 2025, a newly proposed 50-unit property in Charleston, South Carolina overlooking the heart of the city will include a new on-site sales gallery. With the city of Charleston continually ranking on lists of the South’s best cities to visit for its thriving culinary scene, easy walkability and southern charm, this new property, located steps from the historic Charleston City Market, will bring the city experience right to Owners, Members and guest’s doorsteps. In 2026, a new proposed property in Savannah, Georgia is expected to break ground in the heart of the popular historic downtown district and will also include a sales gallery. These properties are anticipated to make great additions to the City Collection portfolio and offer two new, unique destinations for Owners, Members and guests.

Stylish Accommodations

The guestrooms and suites at City Collection properties echo the cosmopolitan nature of their surroundings, each with an updated, modern look and feel that reflects the personal energy and unique culture of its host city. Because the action is found outside the property—in the city and the neighborhoods—the stylish guestrooms and suites, featuring premium bedding and bath amenities, are designed for shorter, more active stays.

Each property currently in The Marriott Vacation Clubs City Collection portfolio was chosen for its central location in the heart of the action:

  • Marriott Vacation Club, New York City – Within walking distance of New York City’s flagship retail stores, Bryant Park and the hustle and bustle of Times Square, this magnificent Midtown Manhattan location features one of the city’s most spectacular rooftop bars.
  • Marriott Vacation Club, San Francisco –Explore the Bay Area’s legendary Fisherman’s Wharf, PIER 39, Ghirardelli Square, Anchorage Square, Historic Hyde Street Pier and countless other famous hotspots in San Francisco from this family-friendly property.

  • Marriott Vacation Club, South Beach – With an enchanting mix of history and modern luxury, this lovingly restored Mediterranean revival gem is one of South Beach’s most iconic locations. On the north end of Ocean Drive, it’s a short stroll to the best of Miami’s South Beach.
  • Marriott Vacation Club at The Mayflower, Washington, D.C. – Landmark vacations start here, a property proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places and central to hundreds of Washington, D.C.’s best museums, restaurants, shops, and attractions.
  • Marriott Vacation Club at Custom House, Boston – Built in 1847, the Custom House and its Clock Tower remain the jewel of Boston’s skyline and an elegant glimpse into America’s past.
  • Marriott Vacation Club at The Empire Place, Bangkok – Located within a high-end condominium residence in the heart and soul of Bangkok, this property places Owners and Members among the diverse and unique culture of locals and positions them perfectly to experience the ancient architectural wonders and modern marvels of Thailand.
Curated City Experiences

Each City Collection property has a City Insider on-site to help maximize an Owner’s, Member’s or guest’s experience. Exploring the destination with walking tours, bringing in curated tastes of local favorites and teaching Owners, Members and guests how to navigate the city, are just a few of the things the dedicated City Insider will help customize for you to satiate your desire for exploring, tasting, socializing and learning about the city destination in fun and enjoyable ways.
