Does this actually matter? No, not really. But yes, actually, it sort of does, because apparently I don’t know how to pronounce the name of the family that founded what became the world’s largest hotel group. I’ve been saying it wrong all this time!
How do you pronounce “Marriott?” I’ve always pronounced it “marry-ott,” with an emphasis on the two “T”s at the end.
However, apparently that’s not how Marriott is pronounced. Travel + Leisure reports that instead the world’s largest hotel group is apparently pronounced in a way that rhymes with “chariot.” Let’s call it “marry-et.”
Have I been living under a rock all this time — did you guys know the correct way to pronounce “Marriott?”
