500?  What 500?  The Daytona 500? The Indianapolis 500? No, the Marriott 500!!!  The race is coming down the final straightaway. With 490 unique Marriott Branded properties in the rear view, I had just TEN to go. Let the great reveal begin.


#491    A post Christmas trip to San Francisco chalked up the first Luxury Collection Hotel of the big 500.  Palace Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Francisco.... was royal and exquisite. Historic grandeur elevated with a massive suite upgrade landed this hotel in my all time top 20.  


#492   Still in the City by the Bay.... W San Francisco crossed off the first W of the modern era.  Nice location, a bit disappointing. The staff were great, the chic design, not so much.
