Thanks to Marriott, there's a new tallest hotel in America.

The 68-story hotel (nearly 753 feet) has not only a 378-room Courtyard but also a 261-room Residence Inn hotel in the building. It's the tallest hotel in the US that is not mixed use (i.e. with office or residential space). The Courtyard occupies floors 6 to 33 while the Residence Inn, which is designed for longer stays, sits on floors 37 to 65.
