Press Release Summary: JW Marriott Las Vegas Launches Green Meetings for Groups to
Address Climate Change

Press Release Body: Las Vegas, October 29, 2008 -- JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort &
Spa is offering an innovative opportunity for its customers booking group meetings
to address climate change and improve the environment. The resort will contribute
funds on behalf of its customers to protect the critically endangered Brazilian
Amazonas rainforest for meetings booked between now and December 31, 2009.

For qualified green meetings/stays booked during select dates, JW Marriott Las Vegas
will make a cash contribution equal to five percent of the total cost of the group's
guest rooms. Donations will be made in the name of the group as part of Marriott
International's ongoing rainforest protection plan. This program will be available
for meetings of 10 sleeping rooms or more booked directly with the resort's sales
department at 702-869-7031 or visit All meetings must take
place between now and December 31, 2011.

"More and more, groups want to be 'green'," said Carmen Rubino, director of sales
and marketing. "By joining us in our effort to protect endangered rainforest and
host green meetings, they will be helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that
impact our climate. Each year, rainforest destruction causes more carbon emissions
than all of the world's cars, trains, SUVs and trucks combined."

JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa works closely with clients who want to design an
eco-friendly green meeting and/or event using environmentally-friendly products and
services. Examples include recycle bins in the meeting room, decorating with organic
flowers, linen-less tables, name tag reuse and donating leftover food.

JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa features 548 oversized guestrooms set amid 54
acres of lush gardens. Located in Summerlin, 20 minutes northwest of the famous Las
Vegas Strip, the resort is close enough to indulge in the city's amenities, but far
enough away to enjoy golfing on one of the courses surrounding the resort or explore
beautiful Red Rock Canyon. Indulge yourself at JW Marriott's luxurious Aquae Sulis
Spa or lounge by the grass-edged pool. Plus, the resort features a wide selection of
dining and entertainment options, from casual to elegant. All services and amenities
synonymous with JW Marriott are at your fingertips when you visit.
