- 1997

The 1990’s decade featured an increased partnership with IHG and a growing portfolio of Marriott branded hotels. In this decade, over 10 hotels were built under the flags of Holiday Inn, Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn by Marriott, continuing a legacy of select service hotels and entering a new market demand for better long term stay accommodations. Growth continued in all four regions of the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Canada. More full scale major developments and acquisitions were accomplished, including a major step into independent hotel management and operation.

Affiliates developed the 178 room Westin Key West Resort & Marina (formerly Hilton) as well as the acclaimed Sunset Key Guest Cottages on a private island featuring 37 extravagant units. Host of many celebrities, the resorts continue a legacy of awards and accolades in the travel industry. The resort was host to the NBC Today Show in 2009.
