The one thing I cant seem to find out is what happened in the Marriott,

Would any of your members be willing to share with me the details of what occurred inside the Marriott? Did the fire alarms go off? Were guests told to get out? ANYTHING that they could share with me would be helpful to me. I need to know what happened that morning!
