At the 10 am conference call/podcast coming up, Marriott will announce that their First Quarter profit rose 26%, their revpar - yada, yada, yawn.

They are also (and remember, they're often quite conservative) raising their outlook for the year as, "corporate travel picks up". (stock, thank goodness, the paper profit helps offset rising room rates for lodgers )

Another fascinating thing (to Insider zealots like myself )  is their essential public ignoring of the fact that they, once again, won Freddies (as you can see below, they still announce their awards)

Insiders, as we have observed, threats of departure have no impact - it's all about us, helping each other.

Keep on keepin' on Insiders, we're all we've got for optimizing each others' travels.
