History of Marriott
Over 80 years after that first business venture, we’re still going strong with continued plans to grow and innovate worldwide. Explore our exciting history and the key milestones we’ve celebrated each decade since our founding. Marriott was founded by J. Willard Marriott in 1927 when he and his wife opened a root beer stand in Washington D.C.. As a Mormon missionary in the sweltering, humid summers in Washington D.C, Marriott was convinced that what the city needed was such a place to get a cool drink. They later expanded their enterprises into a chain of restaurants and hotels. The Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia is Marriott International’s longest operating hotel, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009.

The cost of Marriott's initial investment was estimated to be about $200 million in cash and assumed debt. The next year, Marriott spent $331 million to take over the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta and buy a majority interest in two properties owned by William Johnson, a real estate developer who had purchased the Ritz-Carlton Boston in 1983 and expanded his Ritz holdings over the next twenty years. The Ritz began expansion into the lucrative timeshare market among other new initiatives made financially possible by the deep pockets of Marriott, which also lent its own in-house expertise in certain areas. There were other benefits for Ritz-Carlton flowing from its relationship with Marriott, such as being able to take advantage of the parent company's reservation system...
