The Central California Coastline. Beautiful weather, geography and scenery. Lots to enjoy and explore here. Or, just chill.
Alas, no Marriotts.
Pictured: Morro Bay.
A nice picture. I doubt Marriott is listening But others are.
Thanks... If you look closely at the water, you can see a little friend, who was very entertaining with his/her shell cracking skills. So cute... But back to the Central Coast...
They might at least listen. Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria and Moonstone Beach, San Simeon, Carmel-by-the-Sea (hullo!), even Pacific Grove, not to mention the Oregon Coast (Florence, Newport, Lincoln City). Here is opportunity. We would even be grateful for select service accommodations. In fact, more perfect in keeping with the kicked back vibe of coastal villages.
I'll be back to California some day and would certainly appreciate a few nice Marriott properties with views like that...
Would also love a few Marriott brands scattered along the California coast. Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria, Big Sur... Also, would like one in Big Bear Lake, CA. The nearest hotel is the AC in Lake Arrowhead!
Ah, Big Bear! Did plenty of skiing there in my younger days when I lived down there. It was only an hour's drive from the OC. Great summertime hiking trails too. We also had a cabin in Crestline.
I did not know there was an AC in Arrowhead. Big Bear is unfortunately on fire right now. Forest fires are problematic in our Golden State.
Many ski days and summer hikes in Big Bear when in a previous life the Huntington Beach In-Laws had a place in Big Bear. Such a great little mountain town that I hope doesn't get to damaged from the fires.
It's true, pluto77 , Big Bear is amidst a terrible fire right now. We So-Cali folk are all praying the firefighters get it under control soon. Hopefully, it will be back to its beautiful, serene self again by October. #SpartanRace!
Lincoln City, did someone mention Lincoln City??? I'd love for Marriott to put a property there, but it would be tough not staying at our little beach rental Moonbreakers.
Great photos and your beach rental looks like a pretty sweet little place!
It's a great spot for sure, just don't get any points in my account when staying there!
There is a Marriott Courtyard in San Luis Obispo. It is nicely located for day trips to some locations mentioned. My family and I have stayed at this Courtyard several times in the past and we were very happy with accommodations. Morro Bay, Hearst Castle, Cambria, Pismo Beach, Paso Robles are all within a comfortable day's trip and return. San Luis Obispo is a great destination itself.
Hi Liam, true re: SLO CY. I've stayed there too, as well as CY Paso and SHS Atascadero. I agree, day trips to many places can be made from these properties.
The idea behind the original post was in expressing the desire to have a nice select service Marriott branded property right actually in some of these coastal villages/towns, where we could wake up to a beautiful view with fun things at our fingertips, not having to drive to them. Marriott has select service properties in little ocean side towns on the east coast. I love that, and just would wish likewise here out west.
(And well... I must respectfully disagree with the idea that SLO is a great destination itself, but we're all different... What makes the world such an interesting place!)
I can't stress how important the presence of chicken farms are to the real estate heads at Marriott. Once you get a few near some of these west coast towns, the select service hotels are certain to follow.
