WASHINGTON – Mitt Romney no longer has a Secret Service detail trailing his every step. But the former Republican presidential candidate can still commandeer a Marriott hotel.
Romney came to Washington on Friday, four days after President Obama was sworn into a second term that Romney had hoped to prevent. He was at the J.W. Marriott hotel in downtown Washington for a luncheon that was put together by Catherine Reynolds, a Virginia philanthropist, and Bill Marriott Jr., chairman of the hotel chain. Romney is a member of the company’s board.
