Nest If Statement with Text/String Variable

Hello All, 

 

I am new too Power Bi, and I am having issues finding out how to do a nested if statment. Which the variable is searching for part of the text/String.  (apologize if my terms are inncorrect). 

 

I would like to do an if statment to configure hotel channels (chain). Such as all that have Marriott in the name, to be labled as Marriott, Hiltons as hiltons, and eventually all others as "Other". Is there a way to do this? Below is a table example as reference.

 

HotelChannel
Marriott OhioMarriott
Courtyard by MarriottMarriott
Hilton NYHilton
Motel 6Other
Hilton CAHilton

 

 

Thank you for your help!
