After the split, Host Marriott opted to specialize in the ownership of full service hotels while it moved away from the limited service, senior living, and food and beverage operations. In 1998, the company began aggressively acquiring luxury hotels that included brands like Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt, and Sheraton. In 1999, Host became a Real Estate Investment Trust.
