Finally! Marriott's Autograph Collection Announces Seven New Hotel Members
The Celebration Hotel in Florida.
We had a feeling Marriott Hotels would be ramping up the development of their new Autograph Collection at the start of 2010 and today we now have the announcement of seven hotels to be included in this quasi-independent collection.
According to the press release, the hotels are all a part of the Kessler Collection of hotels which are largely based in the Southeast. They include:
· The El Monte Sagrado, Taos, New Mexico
· The Grand Bohemian Hotel, Asheville, North Carolina
· The Mansion on Forsyth Park, Savannah, Georgia
· The Bohemian Hotel Riverfront, Savannah, Georgia
· The Casa Monica Hotel, St. Augustine, Florida
· The Grand Bohemian Hotel, Orlando, Florida
· The Celebration Hotel, Orlando, Florida
The hotels are set to join the Autograph Collection in April. They will maintain their own look and identity yet guests can book rooms at the hotel's through Marriott and use/earn Marriott Rewards points for their stay.
While we're excited to see that the Autograph Collection is filling out (an expected 25 hotels will be announced in 2010, if all things go well), we're now hoping for some more urban locations to be included. We're not sure when we will find ourselves in Celebration, Fla next if you know what we mean.
In the meantime, while Marriott scours the world for more hotels, you can keep up with the additions here on the Autograph Collection's website, complete with an understated new logo.
