I am not saying for a four star marriott be built there.....Hilton and Holiday Inn are able to have Hampton Inn and HI Express in locations. Wyndam also has access to these locations through its lower have brands. FI is a similar brand to them.

The funny thing the lower level chain hotels can get away with a higher hotel rate if they are near National Parks. Thus the higher room rates, which would abe a pct of cost, would be more than adequate. The fact Marriott doesnt goes back to what another poster said--they are anti-national parks.
