 Marriott has made the Courtyard brand NAF’s dedicated partner in providing real world opportunities to our industry’s future leaders. The results so far have been impressive, and we can’t wait to see what these students accomplish in the future.

We emphasize that the hotel is not only made up of valuable room attendants or team members who check you in, but also finance specialists and those who oversee property management.
