ORLANDO, Fla., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- There's a difference between visiting a place and truly experiencing it, between seeing its sights and discovering its secrets, between walking its streets and feeling its pulse. It's a difference Marriott Vacation Club PulseSM begins initially in the heart of five vibrant cities.
Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, an exciting extension to the Marriott Vacation Club® brand, features unique properties that embrace the spirit and culture of their urban locations, creating an authentic sense of place while delivering easy access to local interests, attractions and transportation.
The guestrooms and suites at Marriott Vacation Club Pulse 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 their host cities. Because the action is found outside the property—in the city and the neighborhoods—the guestrooms and suites are designed for shorter, more active stays.
Most Marriott Vacation Club Pulse locations also have connecting rooms and kitchenettes, making them great options for larger parties and guests who may want a bit more room during their city-centric vacation or getaway.
"Our Owners and guests are eager to explore new places and try new experiences, especially those in more urban locations," said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide. "Marriott Vacation Club Pulse expands vacation choices into even more destinations, all with a very unique style. Now, our guests can truly immerse themselves in the cultures, local scenes and neighborhoods of their favorite cities."
Each property was chosen for its central location in the heart of the action:
