Marriott adds slew of hotels to Autograph Collection fold

Marriott International continues to push the envelope on its Autograph Collection, announcing a total of five more hotels into the mix. One is the the Hotel Park City in Utah, the other four are all part of the Ambassador Hotel Collection.

Hotel Park City, according to the Park Record, will be the fourth Marriott-branded hotel in Park City, joining the Marriott MountainSide at Park City Mountain Resort, the Marriott Summit Watch on Main Street and the Park City Marriott in Prospector.

The Ambassador hotels part of the deal are in Tulsa, Wichita, Oklahoma City and Kansas City. Adding these hotels was a possibility long ago, said Paul Coury, chairman of Tulsa-based Coury Group. "I'm looking into soft brands," he told The Wichita Eagle.

He now told the Eagle that Marriott officials are "excited about the fact that they could bring four hotels into their brand. It’s going to have a great impact on the people in the corporate world who want to stay at hotels that get reward points."
