NY hotel owners sue Zurich, Marriott over $6.5 million in lost revenue
The owners of two hotels in Syracuse, NY are suing their insurer and their corporate franchise over business losses suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
Fairfield Inn & Suites and Springhill Suites have filed the lawsuit in Onondaga County Supreme Court, naming Zurich American Insurance Company and Marriott International as the defendants. The lawsuit claims that both hotels “paid handsomely” over the years for insurance coverage. But when the hotels needed coverage after suffering revenue loss during the pandemic, both Zurich and Marriott were “nowhere to be found,” the hotels alleged.
