That’s right! Some of my paintings are going to be in Marriott hotels! No I’m not doing anything exciting like creating a batch of custom pieces for them, but I am leasing them the rights to a few of my prints. I’m hoping to have photos to show y’all within the next few months but the pieces are still in production and will take a while before any photoshoots happen.
I’m honestly trying to figure out how I feel about my work being in a hotel. Hotel art usually rubs me the wrong way unless it is a super cool hotel. I don’t know if I’ve ever stayed in a Marriott in my entire life so I really can’t speak to how I feel about being in their hotels. But live and learn? I probably should have actually visited one of their hotels before signing the contract to lease artwork to them. But from what I can tell from their hotels online, I would totally stay at some of them!
If you have opinions about hotel art (which I most certainly do) please feel free to share! Or if you have a link to a favorite hotel I’d love to see it!

That’s really exciting! I agree with ya. I think hotels have a great opportunity to incorporate unique pieces in their lobby as well as the rooms. One of my favorite brands 21c Hotels does a phenomenal job with their art collection. Here’s a post I did on their Cincinnati hotel if you’re interested. https://www.emsontheroad.com/posts/2016/03/17/weekend-getaway-21c-cincinnati
That is so cool! Now I totally want to visit this hotel! Thanks for the suggestion! <3
My husband travels a ton, he stays at Marriott properties all the time! And when we travel together as a family, we stay at Marriotts(even in Europe!) because we can use our points:) you might want to look at Marriotts Autograph Collection. We recently stayed at The Adolphus in Dallas and it was gorgeous.
I think this is an awesome opportunity:)
Maybe you could get a tour of the JW Marriott in DC. Maybe you will feel better about the decision:)
I’ve actually been to the Adolphus in Dallas, but didn’t stay there! Okay thanks for the boost of encouragement! <3
