Let Marriott Cover Your NCAA Experience

Let Marriott cover your NCAA experience this March Madness season. This unique partnership with Marriott Bonvoy and the NCAA has provided one-of-a-kind moments for every kind of fan across 30 hotel brands. No matter what team you’re rooting for this championship season, Marriott will help make this a stress-free and fun experience.

We were invited to attend an intimate luncheon to celebrate the launch of Marriott Bonvoy’s partnership with the NCAA. We were given inside-access to an exclusive experience that they offer their members through their loyalty program. Through the program, Marriott Bonvoy members can score elevated sports, food, music and entertainment experiences.

We had the opportunity to interview former professional basketball player and Hall of Famer, Grant Hill, who appears in Marriott’s new ad campaign alongside fan-favorite Mascots. Grant’s go-to hotel brand when he’s traveling the country is the Westin, and his favorite amenity is being able to order great room service to unwind after a long day.  Attendees of the lunch received a personalized Marriott Bonvoy basketball that was painted by a local street artist.
