David Daniel Marriott (born November 2, 1939) is a former U.S. Representative from Utah.

Born in Bingham, Utah, Marriott was educated in the public schools of Sandy, Utah, and graduated from Jordan High School in 1958. He received a B.S. from the University of Utah in 1967, and a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation from the American College of Life Underwriters in 1968. He later worked as a life insurance agent and was owner-president of a Utah-based firm specializing in business and pension consultation from 1968 to 1976. Marriott also served in the Utah Air National Guard from 1958 to 1963.[1]

Marriott was elected as a Republican to the Ninety-fifth and to the three succeeding Congresses, from January 3, 1977 to January 3, 1985. He was not a candidate for reelection in 1984 to the Ninety-ninth Congress, instead running for Governor of Utah. In the 1984 Republican primary, he lost to state House speaker Norm Bangerter, 94,421 to 72,883.[2] He ran for his former House seat in 1990, but lost the Republican primary to Genevieve Atwood. He is a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Marriott served as a Mission President for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 2002–2005. He served in the South Africa Cape Town Mission. Marriott now lives in Salt Lake City and has 12 grandchildren.
