In response to Hurricane Irma, which has been wreaking havoc throughout most of the Caribbean and Florida since last week, Marriott International has established a resource line for those looking for information about guests and associates who may have been impacted by the hurricane.  

The number is 866-211-4610. For those calling outside the U.S. and Canada, the number is +1-402-390-3265. The resource line is staffed from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (ET).

According to a Marriott International statement, as of Friday, “We have not received any reports of guest or associate injuries. Select number of our hotels in the region have sustained minor to significant damage. We are assessing the extent of impact on each hotel and efforts are underway to fully restore operations in those properties more significantly affected by the storm.”

Irma has weakened to a tropical storm, although the storm is still producing some wind guests near hurricane force, according to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center.

As of Monday morning the storm was located about 30 miles north-northeast of Cedar Key, Florida, and about 105 miles north-northwest of Tampa with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. A tropical storm warning remains in effect for an area ranging form Bonita Beach to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line; Jupiter Inlet to the South Santee River; and Lake Okeechobee.

The storm is expected to move near the northwestern coast of the Florida Peninsula Monday morning, cross the eastern Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia this afternoon, and move through Southwestern Georgia and eastern Alabama tonight and Tuesday.
