2015 Scrub of the Marriott POI list completed
It now has 3451 properties - only USA.
Added 228 properties, and deleted 78 that were no longer affiliated with Marriott.
Thanks all for the patience - maintaining this is kind of like painting the Golden Gate Bridge - when you get to one end, you look back and see you need to start over.
Happy New Year!
Added 95 new properties to the USA Marriott file - it now contains 2992 entries.
Fyi, with the new file, two issues:
- when using POI loader, I got error message "Date format error on line 1536" (and no further data loaded after that point)
- the "111" in the file name tricks Loader into thinking it is a proximity point.
Thank you for your efforts with the Marriott locations. It's very helpful for travels.
Thanks for the feedback - I'll include the fixes in the next update!
As the maintainer you can use the tools on POI-Factory to edit the file without having to download a new CSV. Of course, the edit tools don't help with a GPX.
Appreciate the work.
I changed the file format - it can now be opened with the Extra POI Editor.
Completed first scrub of file - deleted some closed Marriott properties. File is now at 2825 locations.
Gordyo, thanks very much for all your work on the Marriot POI file. It is contributions like yours that make POI Factory so great!
Gordyo, for the next update can you change the filename so it does not contain any numbers like perpster mentioned? Instead of v 17 make it v seventeen.
The reason is contained in POI Loader help. When there is a 17 in the filename, all the Marriot POIs will have a speed alert (which is also a proximity alert) when you exceed 17 mph approaching the location of the POI. I will just rename the file before running POI Loader, but others might not know.
Thanks for all your work.
OK - just changed the name so it is all text. Thanks for pointing out my error - sometimes I don't see the forest because of all the trees....
Added Ritz-Carlton properties - size now at 2867
Made some more repairs to the data and added more properties. The size is now up to 2968.
I found out that the downtown Memphis Marriott is turning into a Starwood property - possibly a Sheraton in July. Has anyone heard of other Marriott properties being sold or franchise terminiated?
The Courtyard Dallas NW Highway @ Stemmons/I-35 property is now under new management, no longer a Marriott property
It has been removed from the POI File
Please let me know if any other Marriott properties have been let go. I believe the Memphis downtown Marriott is in the process of becoming a Sheraton (not confirmed)
New updates to the Marriott (USA) file
152 new properties listed
Added the AC, Autograph & Edition properties
WARNING: some properties may not be open until as late as Feb 2015
Did some new year's cleaning of the POI file. Added all new 2015 Hotel locations and deleted DOZENS of properties no longer affiliated with Marriott.
Total property size is now 3301 properties.
Check before relying on these POIs - I've heard a cautionary tale of a traveler who drove to what they thought was a Residence Inn, only to find it had been sold and was now "A Place For Mom."
2016 Scrub of the Marriott POI list completed
It now has 3591 properties for all 50 states.
Added 168 properties, and deleted 28 that were duplicate or no longer affiliated with Marriott.
Have a Great Summer!
I'm in the process of adding the Starwood properties since they have merged with Marriott.
As of today, there are about 4K properties. I'm working west to East and have updated AK, HI, WA, OR, CA, ID, NV, AZ, UT, MT and ND.
This is taking some time - your patience is appreciated!
This is very helpful.
