- 1988

The 1980’s marked a continuous evolution and growth in partnership and success with the Holiday Inn Brand of hotels. More growth was demonstrated in each region of the portfolio, and the company's more than doubled its assets.

Affiliates ventured into its first full sized 277 room Marriott hotel with 9,000 square feet of function space. This was the cutting edge hotel of its time and opened the door to a floodgate of future Marriott ventures and projects. The South Portland Marriott at Sable Oaks continues its legacy today.
