Hitting the Book Tour Circuit

February 6, 2013

Who would have thought I’d be doing a national book tour at age 80?  Well, that’s what I’ve been doing the past few weeks since my book, Without Reservations, became available online.  It’s actually been a lot of fun.  I never get tired of telling stories about the early days and how my parents’ root beer stand grew into a global hotel company.

Take a look at some of these recent TV appearances, and let me know what you think.

Now that I'm snowed by the Blizzard of 2013 in New England, I seek an outstanding book to read by the fireplace. Just like Honest Abe, I will light the fire, and begin reading your new memoir--not the film script/adaption of Lincoln by Tony K. Mr. Marriott. When your book becomes available in hardcopy, may I ship down a copy for you to sign? I keep the last book you inscribed in my library. Life, on the road. The book tour. Same questions. Different answers depending on the interviewer, mood, and city. Life out of a suitcase. The up-side to being on the road, is you get to stay at Marriott hotels. Oh, the luxury of the famed Marriott bed! Comfort personified. Who knows, I may meet up with you this Spring when I'm at my home-away-from-home, The Stanford Court in SF. Schedule your West Coast swing in April. I will treat you to the lemon pancakes served by my favorite waiter, Ramon. And, I will even take you out on a nighttime photo shoot. Deal? Early riser? Then a dawn photo shoot. Wishing you and Donna all the best. Brendan Ben Feeney. Too many wonderful Marriott Honored Guest Points to count. :)

I can't say enough about the Marriott Corporation. I have not strayed much from this chain for over a decade. Both in business travel and timeshare ownership.

Consistancy in the properties quality, friendly staff, cleanliness is paramount. But I will always, always come back to this man, Bill Marriott.

I follow him on twitter and his blog. He is the face of Marriott. I trust his judgement 110% to keep the corporation headed in the right path in this decade as well.

He is truly special.

Looking forward to a good read.
Companies like Marriott have made
significant positive contributions to the
hotel accommodation industry and Hawaii' s
hotel industry in particular.

Halfway through the new book and enjoying it very much! Thanks!

Will you be in Dallas to sign any. It would be a true honor to meet you.

If not is there any way to purchase a signed copy?
