A family jewel in the form of a hotel. It started with a lemonade stand...
The luxurious Marriott Hotel was founded in 1927 by J. Williard Marriott. It is a demonstration of how dreams can grow into something utterly unpredictable, spectacular and luxurious. At first, he and his wife opened a lemonade stand in Washington.
Marriott was convinced that what the city's inhabitants need is a place to enjoy a cold drink. Their business grew into a chain of restaurants and hotels that gradually became known to the public as Hot Shoppes and gradually it developed into the company Hot Shoppes, Inc. It was renamed Marriott Corporation in 1967 and later to Marriott International Inc. It proudly presents itself as an American multinational hospitality company that manages and provides a franchise portfolio of hotels and related accommodations.
The first and second equally important opening of the hotel
The fairy tale-like story begins in 1957 in Arlington, Virginia, with the opening of the first Twin Bridges Marriott Motor Hotel. Their second hotel, Key Bridge Marriott, emerged in the Rosslyn neighborhood of the same city, it is the longest operating Marriott International hotel and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009.
In April 1995, Marriott International acquired a 49% stake in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC. The international Marriott International brand boasts luxury, performance and brilliant style worldwide. The Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand is the Marriott flagship, a luxury hotel brand. It focuses on satisfying all the needs of its guests during travel. On the other hand, brand hotels such as Renaissance Hotels & Resorts try to make sure that guests experience an exciting story in a stylish setting while traveling. You will literally be surrounded on all sides by stylish architecture and interiors with modern amenities and popular restaurants and bars.
In 2017, Marriott ranked 33rd on the "Top 100 Companies" list.
