The coronavirus pandemic has greatly affected the hotel industry across the board, but specifically in New York which once was the heart of the virus. We’ve seen many hotels shutter their doors permanently and will remain closed through the pandemic.

Once we’re on the otherside, it remains unclear what will happen to these assets. There is a possibly that the properties could be sold and a new owner could open then up again under the same brand. They could also be sold and rebranded and reopen under a different hotel company. Some properties could be converted to residential or office space depending on zoning rights, or some could sit vacant.

It’s still too early to tell what the future of the once New York Marriott Eastside will be, but as of now the hotel has permanently closed its doors and laid off all its staff.

  1. There is now talk of making coronavirus-related restrictions permanent. This means life-long, permanent restrictions on freedom of movement, permanent social distancing, permanent mask requirements, among other societal changes. This will greatly reduce the number of hotels, restaurants and many other things. If you have gift certificates for airlines or hotels, I recommend you use them.

  2. @Billy Bob
    Please stop spreading fear and fake news. There’s not such a thing like making coronavirus-related restrictions permanent.
    Once there is a reliable vaccine, life will start going back to normal and in a few years, Covid-19 will be a tragedy in the past of humanity.
    And despite of the irreparable losses of Millions of lives, the world will move forward and hopefully the lessons painfully learned will prevent another tragedy like this one in the future.

  3. @Bill I think those rules apply permanently to you because you seem like a clown in search of a circus

  4. I stayed at the New York East Side Marriott. The check in staff was lovely. The room was okay. No one had told me of the construction going on outside. My wife wanted to try a “cocktail in New York” (it was our first trip to NYC) so we went to the uncrowded lounge. We sat at a table for 4 because the tables were small. The waiter insisted we move to a smaller table to “make room” for larger parties. Within about two minutes, another couple sat at the table we had just been moved from, so they got the bigger table and we didn’t. There was a mandatory 15% tip added to the bill. I was told later on that the union had negotiated this. Nowhere else was having mandatory tips, so we didn’t spend any more F&B money at the Marriott and tipped 20% everywhere else. So it is with mixed feelings that I see this hotel go.

  5. I used to do tech consulting in NYC from 2000 to 2003, stayed at this hotel almost every week Mon through Wed. I was even there on 911. Because I was a platinum Marriott member due to all my stays I’d get upgraded to a junior suite almost every week. I’ll miss this hotel, have some great memories there.
