With all the news circling around about the merging of the SPG, Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Rewards programs into one, I noticed that there are only 29 brands under the Marriott umbrella now, which has set off my OCD. So, I thought it would be fun to play a game of which independent hotel brand should Marriott acquire to round out the portfolio into a nice, even, round number of 30!
(P.S. I swear that there were 30 when the SPG/Marriott merger was announced. Does anyone know which brand disappeared since 2016? I feel like I missed that news somehow)
