The ten year anniversary of the Blackstone Hotel restoration is quickly approaching. Does hotel brands normally carry around a 10-year lease, or there about? I'm just curious if there's been any word about Courtyard and if anything has came up about any brand change, or even possible renovation, esp with the changes with the other major downtown hotels? It seems just like yesterday I was viewing the artwork covering the street level windows of the abandoned Blackstone, and now here we are 10-years later after the renovations.

I believe it received a pretty standard interior overhaul in the last year or so. New carpet, new furnishings and decorations, etc. There's probably a topic about it on the forum.

The Marriott people have actually hired my kitty, Grace, as a security lookout... though I have caught her napping a few times on her watch.

The hotel was sold and new owners plan a few million in capital improvements.
