Each year in a effort to maintain Platinum status and earn as many Marriott Points I can I always try to make every hotel stay at a Marriott Property. While Marriott hotels are in lots of locations they are not everywhere.
I can think of 3 destinations that I would like to see Marriott open a property in.
1.) Hollywood CA- With the loss of the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel last year there are no Marriott properties in Hollywood anymore. Perhaps Marriott should consider inviting one of the great boutique hotels in the area to their Autograph collection.
2.) Provincetown, MA- Hoping to travel there sometime in the upcoming year. Was disappointed there are no Marriott properties there.
3.) Murfreesboro, TN- I have some family that live in this area and it is only served by one Fairfield Inn. It would be nice if there was a full service property in this growing city.
So what do you think? Where should Marriott open a Future Hotel?
Good one vaboy. I've wanted to stay at Marriott's at the following areas;
Harper's Ferry WVa
The Delaware Beaches on up to Cape May
Chatham Cape Cod along with Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard
Laguna Beach California
I also would like to be able to visit the Sequoias and stay at a Marriott
Bermuda is good, but they are really tough on new properties there-especially chains.
Bahamas would be my choice. Nassau and Freeport.
Larger footprint in Tokyo-but that's getting better.
Ocean City, MD. Only one CY and that's a category EIGHT! There are a million props. in VA Beach.
I agree on Hollywood. There needs to be a LA Marriott. SF has 3 Marriotts in their Downtown area (as well as a Renaissance and JW Marriott). To my knowledge, LA has no full service Marriott brand hotels in West Hollywood, Century City, Beverly Hills, or Santa Monica with the exception of a very expensive JW Marriott.
I like two of the suggestions: Havana or the Bahamas. Both could offer unique experiences. If Marriott is going to open in Havana, I suspect it is already working this as opening a new US oriented hotel in Havana will take some time and getting through the Cuban bureaucracy. I would book a room in a minute. The Bahamas offers great beaches with easy access to the States.
Another strong vote of support for Harbor Beach. A great resort, fantastic beach, has a couple of excellent restaurants, great pool area. It is walking distance to other beach restaurants. It is a major step up from the other Marriott properties in the area (Beach Place and Hollywood Marriot. . Also Harbor Beach has an excellent new chef at 3030 which is its best restaurant. I have stayed at all and am eager for another long weekend at Harbor Beach.
