OpenTable signed a global agreement to become a preferred restaurant technology provider to Marriott International. Currently, OpenTable serves more than 1,400 restaurants operated by Marriott hotels in properties across 56 countries throughout the world.
The agreement will make it easier for restaurants located in a Marriott International branded property worldwide to take advantage of OpenTable technology and onboard their teams. Marriott International's portfolio of more than 8,000 hotels includes an extensive roster of full-service restaurants, which collectively have earned more than 40 Michelin stars.
"Marriott's hospitality roots actually began in restaurants, and for many of our guests globally it is the focal point of our relationship," said Matthew Von Ertfelda, Senior Vice President, Food + Beverage at Marriott International. "OpenTable's technology will allow us to introduce our restaurants to new guests throughout our portfolio, and to enhance and personalize our guests' experiences with us."
OpenTable's software streamlines hotel food and beverage operations while helping restaurants deliver memorable experiences and find new diners on the network.
Participating Marriott restaurants will continue to be featured on OpenTable's global booking channels. In addition, OpenTable will introduce premium products and features designed to drive ancillary revenue such as OpenTable Experiences, designed to enable individual restaurants to easily create, market and manage local dining events such as tasting menus, cooking classes, wine tastings and more.
