167 RexMundi000 Company statement from Marriott. On Friday, Marriott was able to secure a ferry to transport about 600 of our guests from St. Thomas to Puerto Rico. These were guests who had to stay behind after the airport closed in advance of Hurricane Irma. The ferry departed St. Thomas Friday, September 8, with the Marriott guests onboard. There were a number of additional people gathered at the dock who were not our guests who also expressed a desire to leave St. Thomas. We very much wanted to assist these other travelers to Puerto Rico, however, the Marriott team on-the-ground was told they had no authorization to board additional passengers who were not on the approved manifest. This was enforced by dock security.
100 WhiteTrashInTrouble Then it wasn't a "rescue ship" then, was it? That's more of what I would call a "ship".
94 brendanjeffrey This thread should be called, "How I would rescue everyone" by everyone on Reddit.
36 Benji0088 Hmm... I'm being told that the port authority was the one who kept those non Marriott guests from boarding.
10 dgauss Why did they not get a response from the port authority on this? I want to know if they really stopped the ship from boarding extra passengers.
14 [deleted] Shouldn't the real question be about why your govt. hasn't helped you?
19 MarkVonShief The only way to voice your disapproval of the management is with your pocketbook.
7 DarkPrinny Marriott rescues customers from disaster. Goes out of the way for a hotel. Reddit title "Marriott didn't save everyone. Fuck those guys boycott them" Hey I know who I am booking my next hotel in the gulf area. You guys can go die in a Sandman under a moldy towel
10 eternalsunshine325 You planned a vacation for a place that is prone to Hurricanes, in the middle of Hurricane season, and you're mad that the last minute rescue operation set up by a hotel for their guests, couldn't include you too? I'm not saying these people deserved to be left behind, but they don't get to go blasting the Marriott for not helping them, when it's not really their job.
9 bcmonke Funny how a companies actions can so differ from the perception they try to sell the public with their ad campaigns. Great job Marriot. Tell me again of the [Golden Rule](
2 platetone I like Washington Post, but this really seems like a very misleading title.
2 baconatedwaffle Holy smokes. I've seen some... idk. weird? Uncanny? ...comment threads on Reddit in my time but this one takes the cake.
