If thinking about Marriott International conjures the skyscraping Marquis flagship in New York’s Times Square, with its supersonic bubble elevators currently presiding over a dark Broadway, it would be easy to assume that the company faces a bleak near-term future. Indeed, parts of that company’s business are still struggling to find footing amid a travel slowdown that has lasted more than a year.

At the Marquis, 800 jobs were eliminated around the year-end holidays. As a whole, Marriott International suffered its worst year in recent history in 2020. It also lost its visionary chief executive officer, Arne Sorenson, to pancreatic cancer.
