Marriott International plans to lay off another 50 Stamford-based employees in late March, the second round of local
downsizing following its acquisition last year of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. Reported earlier this week
to the state Department of Labor, the upcoming layoffs constitute almost 10 percent of Marriott’s approximately
550-person Stamford contingent. Following about 165 job cuts last month, the new reductions mostly affect vice
president, director and specialist positions. “We’re happy to have them, but we hate to see the reduction in their
operations here in Stamford,” said Jack Condlin, president and CEO of the Stamford Chamber of Commerce.
