The Marriott Family's Civil War | Washingtonian

John Willard Marriott III looks nervous. Were sitting in the living room of his rented Georgetown rowhouse on a crisp, sunny morning. Nearly ten of these could fit inside the Potomac mansion he used to share with his wife, Angela, and their three daughtersbefore their marriage fell apart, unleashing, Marriott says, a cascade of events that left him estranged from his parents and his siblings. Its why hes invited me here: to detail a life of hidden pain and regret, and explain why hes going to court against his own family, which happens to control the largest hotel empire in the world.
