What do you do when the place you're traveling to does not have a Marriott? what is your second option for hotels?
When I traveled to Athens almost 2 years ago I stayed 7 nights in 3 different hotels and none of them Marriott coz I didn't find any.
Now I am considering Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Fiji or Bora Bora, I am planning to visit them all one day but one at a time, strangely I cant find a Marriott in any one of them! as I am a Hilton Honor Gold member my 2nd option is Hilton and in each one of those beach destinations I have just mentioned a Hilton is available.
There are many cities, big ones sometimes where I assume I will find a Marriott and don't.
