Every once in awhile, I'll pull into the parking lot at a Marriott property and get that Déjà vu feeling....
Have I been here before? Was it a stay? Was it a meeting?
So I decided to recreate my Marriott history since 1994. With a little help from communitymanagers, I was able to fill in a couple of my early years that happened BT (before tracking). I'm still missing about 100 nights (don't ask me why). I've STAYED in Marriott properties in 13 different countries. I've stayed in 31 States and the District of Columbia. So from stays that I can document with more than just memory, here it goes:
Total of all hotels is 320 different hotels for 586 separate stays.....over 1200 nights and counting
Full Services: 86 hotels for 150 stays ranging from 1 night to 22 nights.
Ritz 1 hotel for 1 stay
Gaylord 1 hotel for 1 stay
Autograph 3 hotels for 4 stays
JW Marr. 2 hotels for 3 stays
Renaissance 18 hotels for 22 stays
Marriott & CCs 61 hotels for 119 stays
I thought about our old friend lakersfan who last reported 154 different Marriott's & CCs...that's incredible.
Select Service: 172 hotels for 313 stays ranging from 1 night to 7 nights
AC 2 hotels for 2 stays
CY 62 hotels for 88 stays
SHS 36 hotels for 66 stays
FFI 72 hotels for 157 stays
Long Term Stay: 61 hotels for 120 stays ranging from 1 night to 7 nights
ResInn 43 hotels for 74 stays
TPS 18 hotels for 46 stays
Vacation Clubs: 1 hotel for 3 stays.
I'll add more specifics to remind me and my MRI friends of some very nice properties. I have some very special favorite hotels......I just booked a 10 night stay for the Courtyard in Bridgetown, Barbados!!
Now, let's hear some of the numbers out there. How many of my MRI friends have cracked 100 different hotels? Which were your favorites?
