Marriott Times Square
Marriott Hotels & Resorts is Marriott International’s flagship brand of full-service hotels and resorts. The company, based in Bethesda, Maryland, is repeatedly included on the Forbes list of best companies to work for, and it was voted the fourth best company to work for in the UK by The Times in 2009. The hotel's construction was first disclosed on November 3, 1972, as a $75-million, 2,000-room project to be developed by Western International Hotels and architect/developer John Portman. The project was officially announced on July 11, 1973 by Mayor John Lindsay and Portman. Construction was set to begin in 1974, with the hotel set to open in 1977. The project was postponed after a fiscal crisis in 1975, before it was restarted under Mayor Ed Koch. Five historic theaters—the original Helen Hayes, Morosco, Bijou, and the remnants of the Astor and Gaiety—needed to be demolished to clear the site. Protesters, including actor Christopher Reeve and impresario Joseph Papp, tried to stop the destruction, even forcing a Supreme Court challenge. By the time construction began, years later, original operators Westin had dropped out due to the delay and Marriott built the hotel in a joint partnership with Portman's development company. The hotel opened on September 3, 1985. As a partial replacement for the demolished theaters, the Marquis Theatre was built as part of the approval for the building of the hotel. It is located within the hotel on the third floor. The Marriott was the first major project in the Times Square revitalization, and has been credited as the starting point for the regeneration of Times Square.
