Marriott has announced that it is launching its new brand Homes and Villas by Marriott International. Starting next week you will be able to reserve one of up to 2,000 properties in more than 100 locales. Just like Marriott's other brands, you will be able to earn and use Bonvoy points in conjunction with these rentals. Marriott is targeting the leisure traveler who is generally traveling with their family on extended stays. Clearly this is a direct strike at the Airbnb market.
