Hotels/Motels- Who owns what

People feel when they shop for products or services that they have choices.  It is something many Americans take pride in as a symbol of freedom and democracy compared to how it was years ago in the Soviet controlled nations when selections for goods and services were few and sometimes none.   But as 'A&G' will continually demonstrate, while one may have many choices in terms of brand names or store-fronts, ultimately your purchasing dollar goes into the pockets of a select few corporations.

Today's example- Hotels/Motels:

Hotels by Hilton
Waldorf Astoria
Conrad Hotels
Embassy Suites
Hilton Garden Inn
Hampton Motels
Homewood Suites
Hilton Grand Vacations
Home2 Suites

Hotels by Marriott
Renaissance Hotels
JW Marriott
Residence Inn
Autograph Collection Hotels
Fairfield Inns & Suites
TownePlace Suites
SpringHill Suites
Ritz Carlton
Marriott ExecuStay

Days Inn
Howard Johnsons
Ramada Inn
Super 8
Knights Inn
Wyndham Grand Collection
Wyndham Gardens
Wingate by Wyndham
Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham
Baymont Inn & Suites
Microtel Inn & Suites

IHG Brands
Holiday Inn
Crowne Plaza
Hotel Indigo
Staybridge Suites
Candlewood Suites
Intercontinental Hotels

~  So chances are when you're taking a long road trip, you stop over somewhere for the night and you debate among 3-4 different motels, ultimately your money is going to the same place.
