Marriott, Under an Agreement with Operadora Punta Peninsula, S.A. de C.V.,
and Ownership Group Grupo Diestra, to Open New 300-room
JW Marriott Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 27, 2012 -- Marriott International's (NYSE: MAR) world-class luxury hotel brand, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, announced today plans to open a new 300-room JW Marriott Hotel in Cabo San Lucas in 2015. The property will be operated by Marriott under an agreement with Operadora Punta Peninsula, S.A. de C.V., and ownership group Grupo Diestra. Located within the Puerto Los Cabos master-planned development, the JW Marriott will cover approximately 14 acres overlooking the Sea of Cortez and offer 820 feet of beach front just seven miles from Los Cabos International Airport.

The JW Marriott will be part of the 2,000-acre master-planned community of Puerto Los Cabos, just three miles northeast of the quaint San Jose del Cabo, founded in 1730. Puerto Los Cabos comprises a number of private residences, a marina, one 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus, restaurants and retail space.

"We are thrilled to be bringing the luxurious JW Marriott brand to Los Cabos," said Roberto Diaz, Director of Development and Construction, Grupo Diestra. "The site of this hotel is absolutely beautiful, with an extensive beach and access to the many facilities of Puerto Los Cabos."

"We are fortunate to have great partners in Mexico, who we continue to grow many successful hotels with in the market," says Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer for Marriott International, Inc. in the Caribbean & Latin America. "Los Cabos is a fabulous luxury resort destination and Puerto Los Cabos an ideal location for our new flagship JW Marriott resort."

In addition to 300 guest rooms and suites, the hotel will feature a three-meal-a-day restaurant, a specialty restaurant, snack bar and grill and a pool bar. The resort will also have 1,220 square meters (13,131 square feet) of meeting space, including a divisible main ballroom, breakout rooms and a boardroom. Recreational facilities include a swimming pool, spa, Jacuzzi, tennis courts and a fitness center. Other amenities will include a kids/teen club and a business center.

Architects for the project are world-renowned Seattle-based Olson Kundig and noted local architects Idea Asociados de Mexico.

"Each JW Marriott delivers a warm, authentic, relaxed and elegant environment that is unique to the luxury segment," said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president, JW Marriott brand management, Marriott International. "The JW brand continues to grow and we are excited to add such an impressive resort to our global portfolio. We are confident it will become a landmark resort in Los Cabos, offering exceptional luxury and service in one of Mexico's premier beach destinations."

The JW Marriott Los Cabos will be the fourth JW Marriott Hotel in Mexico: The JW Marriott Mexico City, located in the charming Polanco neighborhood, in the heart of Mexico City; The JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa; and the stunning JW Marriott Mexico City Santa Fe.
