Our website uses "cookie" technology. "Cookies" are encrypted strings of text that a website stores on a user's computer. Our website requires the use of a cookie throughout the online reservation process so we can keep information you enter on multiple pages together. For example, unless Marriott.com and Ritzcarlton.com can remember the dates you used in your hotel search, we will not be able to check room availability. Cookies also enable us to customize our website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience. For example, cookies allow users with online accounts to sign in to Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Rewards without typing their login information each time.
Third Party Advertising Cookies
We use third-party advertising technology to serve ads when you visit our website and sites upon which we advertise. This technology uses information about your visits to this website and the sites upon which we advertise, (not including your name, address, or other personally identifiable information). In the course of serving our advertisements to you, a unique third-party persistent cookie may be placed or recognized on your browser. In addition, we use beacon gifs (see description below), provided by our ad-serving providers, to help manage our online advertising. These beacon gifs enable our ad server to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits this site and to learn which banner ads bring users to our website and whether a reservation on Marriott.com has been made. The information our ad-serving providers and we collect through this technology is not personally identifiable but is used to create a profile which allows the ad-serving provider to serve relevant adverts which are targeted towards you and your interests across the ad-serving network.
