Irish and Welsh readers can be forgiven for boycotting the Marriott hotel chain (below). Its latest poster ad for Marriott in New York shows a stylised map of the aforesaid city, with all its hotels, the Atlantic ocean and – on the other side of the pond – England. Yes, England. Wales and Ireland have disappeared altogether; we’ll never know if Scotland ever existed in the creative’s mindset because there wouldn’t have been room for it on the poster anyway. The only conclusion the Diary can draw from this is that the agency is pandering to the Americans’ appalling knowledge of European geography. Paris, London, anyone?
