This is what you see when you visit the Marriott website in China -it says the site is being updated, and also gives an apology
"While the hotel's international website is still available within China, the Shanghai Cyberspace Administration ordered it to close a Mandarin version.
Authorities had also shut down Marriott's Chinese mobile phone app as part of its punishment for the Mandarin-language survey. But having being closed earlier, the app now appears to be functioning."

"On Thursday the hotel group's chief executive Arne Sorenson issued an apology, saying his firm "respects and supports Chinese sovereignty and its territorial integrity".

"We don't support anyone who subverts the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China and we do not intend in any way to encourage or incite any such people or groups," Mr Sorenson said.

"Unfortunately, twice this week, we had incidents that suggested the opposite."

The statement added that the company would take "necessary" disciplinary action against staff involved, which may include termination.

Mr Sorenson has previously described China as his firm's biggest market. While Marriott has over 100 hotels in the country under different brands, it is also keen to profit from the swelling number of Chinese people travelling internationally.

Last year it launched a joint travel venture with China's ecommerce giant Alibaba."
