Amendments to Articles of Inc. or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year,

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.

On February 9, 2017, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Marriott International, Inc. (the "Company") amended the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws (the "Bylaws") to implement proxy access.

Sections 3.14 and 3.15 of the Bylaws have been added to permit a shareholder, or group of up to 20 shareholders, owning at least 3% of the Company's outstanding common stock continuously for at least three years, to nominate and include in the Company's proxy materials for an annual meeting of shareholders, director nominees constituting up to the greater of two nominees or 20% of the Board, provided that the shareholder(s) and the director nominee(s) satisfy the requirements specified in the Bylaws.

The Bylaws were also amended to:

make updates and minor conforming changes to the advance notice provisions in
Section 2.10 of the Bylaws in light of the adoption of proxy access;

remove Section 3.6 to provide flexibility relating to the first meeting of the Board after its election;

clarify that the Bylaws permit notice by electronic transmission as defined in the General Corporation Law of Delaware in Sections 3.8 and 4.1;

provide that any two authorized officers of the Company may sign share certificates in conformity with recently updated provisions of the General Corporation Law of Delaware in Section 6.1;

provide that, consistent with typical practice, the inspection and location of the books and records of the Company shall be governed by applicable law or resolution of the Board (rather than the shareholders) in Article VII; and

make other minor administrative, clarifying and conforming changes.

The amendments to the Bylaws were effective immediately.

The above description of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Bylaws, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 3(ii) hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
