Washington DC in 1927, the first Marriott venture by Bill and Alice Marriott. Shown above is the final restaurant, located at the Marlow Heights Shopping Center in Marlow Heights, Maryland, which closed in 1999.
The end of a long and glorious stretch of places with great food at great prices in a wonderful atmosphere. For those who frequented the many Hot Shoppes in the DC area, you'll recall those places with great fondness. I have a hankering for a Mighty Mo and a Teen Twist about now!
