Purpose of the Offers

The primary purpose of the Offers is to acquire and retire outstanding Notes. Each Offer is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions as more fully described under the heading "Description of the Offers—Conditions to the Offers" in the Offer to Purchase. Notes that are accepted in the Offers will be purchased, retired and cancelled by Marriott and will no longer remain outstanding obligations of Marriott.

Details of the Offers

The Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 19, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer). Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 19, 2020 (as the same may be extended with respect to any Offer), but not thereafter, except as required by applicable law as described in the Offer to Purchase. None of the Offers is conditioned upon completion of any of the other Offers, and each Offer otherwise operates independently from the other Offers. None of the Offers is conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered.

For a Holder who holds Notes through DTC to validly tender Notes pursuant to the Offers, an Agent's Message and any other required documents must be received by the Tender Agent at its address set forth on the Offer to Purchase at or prior to the Expiration Date or, if pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date. For a Holder who holds Notes through Clearstream Banking, société anonyme or Euroclear Bank SA/NV to validly tender Notes pursuant to the Offers, such Holder must tender such Notes in accordance with the procedures of such clearing system. There is no letter of transmittal for the Offer to Purchase.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Tender Offer Documents, Holders who (i) validly tender Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date (and do not validly withdraw such Notes at or prior to the Withdrawal Date), or (ii) deliver a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (or comply with ATOP procedures applicable to guaranteed delivery) and all other required documents at or prior to the Expiration Date and validly tender their Notes at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, and, in each case, whose Notes are accepted for purchase by Marriott, will receive the applicable Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes as set forth in the table above, which will be payable in cash.

Among other conditions, Marriott's obligation to complete an Offer with respect to a particular series of Notes is conditioned on the aggregate Total Consideration (which excludes the aggregate Accrued Coupon Payment) payable in respect of all Notes accepted for purchase in the aggregate not exceeding $1,000,000,000, and, in each case, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase.

If the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase are not satisfied for every series of Notes because the aggregate Total Consideration (which excludes the aggregate Accrued Coupon Payment) for all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn is greater than $1,000,000,000, then Marriott will, in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels, accept for purchase all Notes of each series validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, so long as (i) the aggregate Total Consideration necessary to purchase all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of such series, plus (ii) the aggregate Total Consideration necessary to purchase all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of all series having a higher Acceptance Priority Level than such series of Notes are equal to, or less than, $1,000,000,000, subject to the condition with respect to Non-Covered Notes (as defined below) further described in the Offer to Purchase.

If the conditions set forth above are not satisfied for a particular series of Notes (such series of Notes, the "Non-Covered Notes"), at any time at or prior to the Expiration Date, then: (i) no Notes of such series will be accepted for purchase, and (ii) if there is any series of Notes having a lower Acceptance Priority Level for which: (a) the aggregate Total Consideration necessary to purchase all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of such series, plus (b) the aggregate Total Consideration necessary to purchase all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of all series having a higher Acceptance Priority Level than such series of Notes, other than the Non-Covered Notes, are equal to, or less than, $1,000,000,000, then all Notes of such series having a lower Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted for purchase, until there is no series of Notes with a lower Acceptance Priority Level to be considered for purchase for which the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase are met.

It is possible that a series of Notes with a particular Acceptance Priority Level will fail to meet the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and therefore will not be accepted for purchase even if one or more series with a higher or lower Acceptance Priority Level is accepted for purchase. If a series of Notes is accepted for purchase under the Offers, all Notes of that series that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn will be accepted for purchase by Marriott. No series of Notes will be subject to proration pursuant to the Offers.

Marriott expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, subject to applicable law, to amend, extend or, upon failure of any condition described in the Offer to Purchase to be satisfied or waived, to terminate any of the Offers at any time at or prior to the Expiration Date. Marriott also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, subject to applicable law, to terminate any of the Offers at any time at or prior to the Expiration Date.
