Comments: On Sept 10 my flight from San Francisco was scheduled to land at Newark but because of a fire there it was diverted to JFK. Therefore I checked in to Marroit WTC instead of Newark. On Sept 11 I had an 8:00 AM meeting in New Jersy so I got up and left hotel at 6:00 AM but didn't check out or take my suitcase becuase I planned to return that afternoon. Thank God for early morning meetings and I'm sorry I didn't pay my hotel bill.

Comments: I was a Marriott Corp. Associate of more than 2 years on 09/11, and am still with Marriott today. Contrary to what Cathy thinks, Marriott Corp. has not forgotten this hotel.
The hotel's flag was recovered from the debris. For the past decade the flag hung in the lobby of Marriott International Corporate Headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland, and served as a constant reminder of the two Marriott associates who lost their lives.
On August 25, 2011 the flag came off the wall in headquarters to make the journey back to New York. It will be on display in the New York Marriott Downtown for the tenth anniversary remembrance of 9/11 and will eventually be part of a permanent exhibit at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Comments: Thank you to all those that remember those of us who survived the collapse of the Marriott WTC on 9/11. The Marriott has tried for years to make people forget the hotel existed or that people lost their lives in the hotel that day. To the manager of the hotel and all the firefighters that lost their lives at the hotel that day...thank you for all you did so the rest of us could survive!

Comments: I stayed in the Marriott Hotel back in 1997. I was in the marching band with my school and we had came to march in the Thanksgiving Day parade. I can still remember walking around the hotel, going up in the tower and eating down in the mall that was in the basement. I always wondered what happened to the hotel that day. Thanks for making this site. I will never forget the victims and survivors of that horrific day. God Bless

Comments: I stayed at this Marriott a couple of times and had great service. After 9-11 I often wondered what happened to the people that were there on that horrible day. I stayed there when I was pregnant in 1998. The man that carried my bags for me told me I was having a boy. He was right. I often think of him and hope he survived that horrible day. God bless you all. You are always in my prayers.

Comments: We are approaching the 10 year anniversary of September 11. This was 10 years ago but I still have strong memories of that day. I can still visualize the burning towers, the planes hitting the building, and the collapse of the World Trade Center, and people fleeing, running & choking.
It is important that we remember that day and commemorate the thousands of people who lost their lives. We must also remember the many survivors who may still be haunted by memories. We must not forget the heroes, firefighters, rescue works who helped others escape.
