Marriott International chairman and CEO J.W. Marriott Jr. was on hand in Tampa, Fla., on Thursday to dedicate the company's new 287-room, six-suite Renaissance Tampa Hotel International Plaza, which Marriott views as a prototype for investors to examine the direction of the brand. Marriott said he did not believe Florida's tourism industry would be impacted in the long-term by the season's hurricanes.
