MIAMI, FL (May 11, 2016) — Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition of Marriott Vacation Club PulseSM, San Diego to its exchange network. This cosmopolitan site joins four other previously affiliated Marriott Vacation Club PulseSM properties in prime locations: Boston, New York City, South Beach, and Washington, D.C.
“Marriott Vacation Club has always been at the forefront of branded vacation ownership and the launch of the new Pulse collection is the latest example of its innovative approach,” said David C. Gilbert, president of Interval International. “The urban club offers some of the most highly demanded destinations in the country, and I know that our members will appreciate the opportunity to visit these exciting cities.”
Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, San Diego will feature 264 well-appointed king, double, and connecting two-room suites with refined wood, metal finishes, sofa beds, and stunning views. Amenities will include a fitness center, activity and play room, and indoor pool. Nearby, visitors can experience an array of popular attractions, such as the Gaslamp Quarter, the museums of Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and SeaWorld.
“With distinctive options in the heart of vibrant cities on both coasts, our urban portfolio is the perfect complement to the dozens of Marriott Vacation Club sites in the finest resort destinations worldwide,” said Ed Kinney, global vice president of corporate affairs and communications for Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “These five unique properties are ideal for shorter stays and immersion in local neighborhoods and culture.”
Marriott Vacation Club introduced its first branded metropolitan property in downtown Boston in 1997. Now known as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse at Custom House, Boston, it revives the grandeur of an architectural gem built in 1847 and offers a stylish blend of original features and contemporary benefits. The outstanding location places owners and guests just steps away from world-famous landmarks, such as Boston Common, Quincy Market, and Faneuil Hall.
Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City has sophisticated guest rooms with lush bedding, elegant furnishings, and spa-inspired bathrooms with sleek granite counters. The upscale amenities include The Strand Bistro and The Top of the Strand, its rooftop lounge with a retractable glass-enclosed roof overlooking the iconic Empire State Building and the city beyond.
Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, South Beach boasts elegantly appointed rooms, suites, and studios with comfortable, streamlined furnishings. Built in 1936, the iconic property is undergoing a renovation that will enhance the mix of tradition with contemporary design. Guests are within walking distance of many hot spots, from the restaurants and galleries of Lincoln Road to the boutiques and nightclubs of Collins and Washington avenues.
Marriott Vacation Club Pulse at The Mayflower, Washington, D.C. provides fresh room designs that blend historic luxury and modern style, flat-screen televisions, evening turndown service, daily housekeeping, and access to other facilities of the renowned Mayflower Hotel, such as a business center and the lively American brasserie, EDGAR Bar & Kitchen.
