Marriott International announced a new collaboration between its SpringHill Suites brand and Society6 that will result in curated gallery walls in more than 450 SpringHill Suites by Marriott hotels across North America. Each hotel’s gallery wall will feature artwork from one of 10 geographic regions, each striving to express that region’s style. The 10 regions include Canada and Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, California, Southwest, West, Midwest, Texas and Oklahoma, South, Florida and North Atlantic. Each art piece on a gallery wall will be sourced from an independent artist tied to the region represented.
“SpringHill Suites is delighted to collaborate with Society6 to further enhance our hotels’ stylish surroundings in properties across the United States and Canada,” said Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, classic select brands, Marriott International. “This creative collaboration helps guests better experience their destination through art and when paired with our spacious all-suite design, creates a hotel stay that is beyond the expected.”
The artwork will also be displayed on hotel key cards and guests can purchase the art pieces reprinted on a variety of objects, from phone cases to yoga mats.
“With an eye for design, partnering with SpringHill Suites by Marriott on The Gallery Wall made perfect sense,” said Sara Jackson, vice president of sales, Society6. “Society6’s foundation is built around supporting our 300,000-plus artists worldwide, and through the partnership, we are able to curate unique, artist-designed products to bring a compelling story to over 450 SpringHill Suites properties.”

THE BEGINNING OF AUTUMN in America offers a time to savor the last precious moments of summer against the countryside’s mosaic of reds, yellows, oranges and purples. Before long, the chill of winter will enter the air and the trees will grow barren. This is not news to most of us. Indeed, leaf peeping has become ubiquitous. Most states have 24-hour toll-free hotlines to keep you informed of nature’s progress ... and then there’s the traffic. It seems the entire population of New York City and Boston climbs behind the wheels of cars on congested New England roadways. Thus we’ve tried to avoid the mainstream routes so you can truly appreciate the kaleidoscopic splendor. After all, a fall foliage road trip provides more than a mere drive. It also incorporates picking apples, tasting cider and hot doughnuts and leaving your vehicle behind to take a much-needed scenic walk to a lonely waterfall, where autumn’s colors reflect off the water.
