Marriott Faces $300,000 Racial Discrimination Lawsuit
A 51-year-old African American woman is suing Marriott for racial discrimination. Upon checking-in to the Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Convention Center, the woman – a Marriott Rewards member – was asked to sign a “No Party Policy.” The front desk clerk informed her that the policy was established to inform all guests of noise limits. However, the woman claims she later witnessed multiple Caucasian guests check in without being asked to sign the policy. The woman’s lawyers state that she “had never had a problem or noise complaint at any other Marriott hotel she had ever stayed at.” She seeks compensation for frustration, humiliation and emotional distress for the racial stigmatization.
