Osama Hirzalla, vice president brand marketing and ecommerce for Marriott International in Europe said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by RLWC2013 as the tournament’s Official Hotel Partner. It will be a privilege to host the teams at our hotels across the UK as they prepare for their biggest sporting challenge, and we also hope to welcome the many thousands of fans from the UK and across the world as they travel to support their countries.”

You'd think - but there is already people moaning saying it's not upmarket due to the last time they stayed at one...

Beginning to reel from all this good news.

Got a good weekend deal in the London Docklands Marriott last year. Great place.

I also remember reading Tom Coates has got some kind of RLWC PR gig, does that mean he can interview himself for Rugby League World magazine?

Doesn't the advertising take into account the ip addresses you last visited and then the advertisement comes up which relates to that. For example mines ebay a lot of the time. Rioman has some explaining to do ;)

Anyways great news for RL been a positive week thus far.

I get that one a lot, bit ropey looking if you ask me!

Oddly enough, I get them same bird wherever in the country I log on and she's still 3 miles away. I think I might have a stalking problem.

Back to Marriott, excellent news. Massive worldwide chain associated with our sport, superb :)
