Way back in September of 1994, I spent my first recorded night at a Marriott Hotel. The Radisson Plaza Hotel in Melville New York was rebranded the Melville Marriott Long Island Hotel. This hotel was just around the corner to a regional office where my new boss was stationed. He would call Friday afternoon staff meetings. Three of four were in Melville (a lovely drive home to Philly on a Friday afternoon, not!!). The reward's program brochure was available at the front desk and I filled it out. The Melville Marriott has always been one of my favorites. I am experiencing the hotel for the first time in 18 years this week. Back in 1994, I really didn't know much about hotels. Walking through the front doors has brought back many fine memories and a few cloudy ones due to the lobby bar.
Where was your first Marriott stay and have you been back? Is it still a Marriott after all these years?
