Concerts and Marriott's

While enduring some very wet and nasty weather the last few days I was aimlessly wandering through the TV channels and stumbled on to a great concert, Carole King and James Taylor Live at the Troubadour. 

 

As I watched the music icons and listened to the two glorious voices I started to think of concerts we've attended and hotels we've stayed while attending the concerts.  So I thought it would be fun to see where others have been to concerts and what Marriott's they may have stayed for the evening or longer when attending various concerts.


Here is what I can remember in no specific order:

  • Faith Hill/Tim McGraw               Toyota Center                             Houston, TX                            Downtown Houston Hotels | Courtyard Houston Downtown Hotel
  • Steely Dan                         Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion      The Woodlands, TX                   The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel, Woodlands Waterway Hotel

    My favorites are:

    Michael Buble- New York Marriott Marquis

    David Letterman- New York Marriott Marquis (Ed Sullivan Theatre and then a Yankee's game (old stadium),  this was a great time)

    Michael Buble- Renaissance Chicago Downtown

    Elton John- Renaissance Chicago Downtown

    Joe Bonamassa- Renaissance Chicago Downtown

    Robin Williams- Renaissance Chicago Downtown

     

    (Plays; Les Miserables, Wicked, Jersey Boys, Billy Elliott, Lucy Show, The Producers,,etc.. with all stays at Marriott's in different cities)

     

    These are just some of our stays, We also try and go to one baseball game in another state per year. Of course our stay would be at a Marriott Hotel.

        So far I have two favorite's Jersey Boys and Les Miserables. I will be seeing Phantom of the Opera in January 2014 with a stay at the Renaissance Downtown Chicago. Cats and Evita are also on my list to see. If you haven't seen Robin Williams yet I would recommended it.
