The Hot Shoppe

It all began with an A&W Root Beer Stand that John Willard Marriott and his wife Alice opened in Washington D.C. on May 20th, 1927. Hot Shoppes went public in 1953 and the stocks sold out within two hours of trading. In 1957 – 30 years after the company’s founding – Marriott opened its first hotel in Arlington, Virginia: the Twin Bridges Motor Hotel. 

Marriott International is on a mission to shape the future of travel through technology and innovation. “Our core values still make us who we are. Our “Spirit to Serve” culture is based on a business philosophy that was introduced 90 years ago.
As we change and grow, the beliefs that are most important to us stay the same – putting people first, pursuing excellence, embracing change, acting with integrity and serving our world.”
