I'm staying at the Marriott West Philadelphia tonight and tomorrow night. I just was down at the front desk paying for some Doritos (I hadn't met all the parts of my food pyramid yet). The staff were all looking at the clock hanging behind the main lobby counter. Though it had been hanging there for years, it took a 5 year old to notice that the Roman numerals on the clock are WRONG! The number 4 is written on the face of this clock as IIII. -- as I said, nobody had ever noticed before.
Marrriott probably doesn't buy 1 of anything. I would bet that any full service Marriott which had been decorated at about the same time has the exact same clock hanging over the desk in the lobby. Your assignment -- first chance you get -- is to stop at the nearest full service Marriott and check. I'd love to see pictures of these clocks in all the locations.
I'll snap one of the clock in this lobby in the morning, unless the guys in black suits and dark glasses take it away before morning.
