That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Marriott International stocks can be evaluated.
Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Marriott International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marriott International stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marriott International stocks traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Marriott International's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 Marriott International stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 stocks are currently held short.
However Marriott International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marriott International stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Marriott International stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marriott International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Marriott International stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0169% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Marriott International stocks, roughly 17 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Marriott International.
