The Marriott hotel chain is known for its comfortable rooms and amenities. But in addition to a plethora of appeasing services, the popular company also offers value packages to individuals who are gay. Curiously, numerous hotels within the Marriott chain offer what they call OUT packages.
At the Renaissance Washington Marriott in Washington, D.C., for instance, the deal includes chocolate covered strawberries, sparking wine upon arrival and a copy of NaviGaytour Magazine, among other benefits. ...
The main thrust of the deals seem to be predicated upon an urge to attract a gay customer base, while distinguishing the company as particularly diverse and accepting.

Maybe it was stolen.
Maybe that room ran outta T.P. and somebody used it.
Romney vs. Obama? One of them has to lose, rejoice in that fact, whichever it is.
You remember when we covered everything in 2007 about Romney, here is his Marriot/Porn life.
“Some anti-pornography groups are demanding answers as to how much presidential candidate Mitt Romney knew about the Marriott hotel chain’s profits of pornography sales during his nearly ten years on the Board of Directors in the 1990’s.”
“Previous news accounts researched by The Brody File show that Romney was paid more than $100,000 per year while on the board of Marriott.
When he left in 2002, J.W. Marriott, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of Marriott International, called him, “an active, hands-on Director From his first days on our Board nine years ago, Mitt has been an extraordinarily effective director and visionary leader.”
We have discussed a number of important issues such as the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which I have agreed to co-sponsor, and if possible broaden to include housing and credit, and the bill to create a federal panel to find ways to reduce gay and lesbian youth suicide, which I also support. One issue I want to clarify concerns President Clintons dont ask, dont tell, dont pursue military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nations military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.
As we begin the final phase of this campaign, I need your support more than ever. By working together, we will achieve the goals we share for Massachusetts and our Nation.
W. Mitt Romney
The Courtyard I stayed in in Alb. had one in my room.
Hilton Garden Inn’s are great.
Isn’t that Thweet.
Well darn it!!! My hubby and I would like to have chocolate strawberries. I guess though, being a man and a pregnant woman, we can’t pass as gay. Speaking of being pregnant, did I mention that the chocolate strawberries sound really good?
*hoping dear hubby sees this*
You want to make me cry, don’t you? I got more grief in the last month.....
Remember, they do not wash the comforter, and do not walk barefoot on the carpet.
>> “Were not blind to Romneys liberalism, but when GHWB, George W., Barbara, and Jebbie say get on board, we must do so!” <<
N O T !
>> “Remember, they do not wash the comforter, and do not walk barefoot on the carpet.” <<
That’s nothing, the Hindi owners of a motel we stayed in in Santa Barbara had not laundered the bed sheets for probably weeks! They smelled of body odor and numerous kinds of perfume mixed together.
>> “I guess though, being a man and a pregnant woman, we cant pass as gay.” <<
Sure you can!
Just tell them that your ‘partner’ is an incurable male lesbian that thought mistakenly that getting castrated made him sterile.
The eventual "good news" is that Marriott has announced it's phasing out the porn profit.
Of course...after at least 23 years of porn profiteering -- with Romney at its Board of Directors' helm for many of those years -- so much for Romney (& Bill Marriott, CEO) being Mormon men of integrity.
According to David Rosen at ix.netcom.com, "Romney received an annual fee of $25,000 and stock options while serving on the Marriott board. He also received a campaign contribution of $80,000 arranged by J.W. Marriott. Romney left the board position at some point in 2007 but rejoined after the campaign was over. During the first decade Romney was on the board (1992 on)
So, here was Marriott, offering its rooms as the "theater of choice" to the film distributor, On Command Corporation. And even more recently, what has On Command Corporation, which has since become LodgeNet, offered as titles for Marriott? According to this article -- Marriott Boycotted Over Porn -- published in Oct, 2009: The groups [AIDS Healthcare and Pink Cross Foundations] organized a "porn-in" last night at the Marriott on Figueroa Street downtown to launch the boycott. As we speak, the organizations contend, some businessman in a dark Marriott room somewhere across America is watching Just Explicit Sex, Naughty Office Workers, Mothers Do It Better, or Daddy's Girl Takes it All -- titles they say are offered by the chain, titles that feature condom-free sex.
Oh...and Mitt's additional tie-in to ensuring Planned Parenthood has been funded? Well, look who's boycotted Marriott due to $ gifts to Planned Parenthood:
Life Decisions International
There went MY supper!
(Why am I reminded of the opening scenes in 2001:Space Odessy?
I stole one - back in ‘63.
From a small motel in St. George.
I still have it; as well as a newer one, too.
Too bad that the BoM is NOT the book in which most of the doctrines and practices of MORMONism are found.
Just so you know the “Family Business” is larger than just Marriots as follows...and info:
The company is one of the world’s leading hoteliers with some 3,700 operated or franchised properties in more than 70 countries.
Its hotels include such full-service brands as..
‘Marriott Hotels & Resorts’
‘Courtyard’ and ‘Fairfield Inn.’
‘Ritz-Carlton’ luxury chain and resort
..... and manages about ‘45 golf courses’......
The firm spun off its time-share business, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, in 2011 and is selling its ExecuStay corporate housing business in 2012. The Marriott family, including J. W. Marriott Jr., owns about 30% of
Key numbers for fiscal year ending December, 2011:
One year growth:....... 5.4%

Income growth:......... (56.8%)
Chairman and CEO: J. W. (Bill) Marriott Jr.

Post #35 shows this company expands way beyond just Marriots...it’s a huge conglomerate! As with most of the LDS Investments etc.
I have no doubt some big bucks are “washed” throughout their companys and thru the church itself as it’s secrecy would prevent much if any investigations. Imagine what the globalist could do with the Romney as Pres. and his church “secrecy” in funneling money Internationally!
