"With consumers increasingly grav- itating toward walkable, mixed-use communities, opening new hotels alongside Simon's thriving retail destinations is an important part of Marriott International's growth strate- gy in North America," said Eric Jacobs, Marriott's chief development officer, in a press release. "Simon's centers provide leisure and business travel- ers alike access to shopping, restau- rants, entertainment and an array of unique experiences outside their door, providing the perfect complement for our select-service brands, such as AC by Marriott and Residence Inn." Marriott brands will be introduced at Dadeland Mall, in Miami; Firewheel Town Center, Garland, Texas; Roosevelt Field, Garden City, N.Y.; Sawgrass Mills, Sunrise, Fla.; and Wolfchase Galleria, Memphis, Tenn. One of the most notable hotel-mall combinations is Marriott's Ritz- Carlton, at Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, Va. Other Simon malls that contain Marriott-brand hotels are Phipps Plaza, in Atlanta, which got an AC hotel in 2016; and Coconut Point, in Estero, Fla., where a TownePlace Suites opened last year. "There is a great synergy when you combine Marriott's innovative hotels and Simon's exciting shopping, dining, NO VACANCY Marriott to open five more hotels at Simon malls By Edmund Mander
