Marriott Suites: Are They Still Around

Anyone remember Marriott Suites? Is that brand still around? Why is Marriott Suites super rare (according to Floridian Elevators on Youtube)?

I'm only asking because my parents stayed at one in Deerfield IL back when it was new in 1991 (according to my father, the pool wasn't even open).

I will say this, the tub and shower being seperate back in the early 90's (Marriott Suites has been around since 1987) was innovative and it still is in 2020.

In the late 1980s, it seemed that Marriott Suites would be the next big thing for Marriott. Other chains were successful with all-suite properties, and Marriott did not want to miss the boat. After a short burst of Marriott Suites properties, new full-service all-suite properties became a rarity. But there were still occasionally new ones. The Anaheim property was product of the early 21st century, if I recall correctly.

Marriott Suites properties are still around.

Some have been rebranded. Marriott Suites in suburban Columbus became Sheraton Suites decades before Marriott acquired Starwood. Marriott Suites in downtown San Diego because Sheraton Suites, and then Declan Suites, before once again donning the Marriott brand as a Marriott Vacation Club Pulse property.

A few dropped "Suites" from their names. Costa Mesa, Newport Beach (Bayview), and Scottsdale (Old Town) come to mind.

There are probably more, but the list below has the properties that I'm aware of. If I put an asterisk in front of the name, I stayed there when it was a Marriott Suites property.

Anaheim Marriott Suites
Atlanta Marriott Suites Midtown
* Bethesda Marriott Suites
Chicago Marriott Suites Deerfield
* Chicago Marriott Suites Downers Grove
* Costa Mesa Marriott
* Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, San Diego
Newport Beach Marriott Bayview
* Sheraton Suites Columbus Worthington
Scottsdale Marriott Old Town
Washington Dulles Marriott Suites

The Clearwater location is exterior corridor which is perfect in Florida. And in an era known as COVID19.

Google Maps street view (image capture Feb. 2019) also shows "Marriott Suites" on the sign at the porte cochere.

But the current official name on Marriott.com is simply Scottsdale Marriott Old Town: https://www.marriott.com/hotels/hote...iott-old-town/

I stayed in the Anaheim Marriott Suites two years ago so I could walk to a conference in a different hotel, but that is my only defense.

The Augusta Marriott has a standard hotel connected via ballrooms to an all suite tower. They’re not really separate hotels at this point, though they may have been at one time. I feel like I recall seeing the Marriott Suites branding on the side of the suites tower.

Here's a view of the whole property with the "Marriott Suites" designation still clearly visible on the far tower.
