Marriott (MAR) intends to hire up to 10K workers in the U.S. this year and open 150 hotels, Chairman Bill Marriott tells Bloomberg, despite concerns about the U.S. recovery and the eurozone debt crisis. Having agreed to buy Gaylord Entertainment last week, Marriott is also planning to make further acquisitions.
