Hilton Hotels and Resort properties also reported the same circumstances as Marriott, operating with roughly 20 percent of their staff, according to conference news website Smart Meetings. This layoff came as a result of the property's occupancy dropping from 100 percent to 8 percent over four days.
Hilton, which has been around since 1919, previously more than 580 hotels and resorts across the country with more than 215,000 rooms.
Bill Hornbuckle, president and chief operating officer of MGM Resorts International, reportedly said in a letter to employees on Monday said all day clubs and night clubs will cease operations, as well as 150 food and beverage outlets, with more closing in coming days, according to the publication. The brand closed all 13 of its properties on the Las Vegas strip; as well as its properties in Ohio, Michigan, Massachusetts and Maryland. “We will continue to pay our Flexible Time Off (FTO) eligible employees on furlough for two weeks and our hourly employees can use all available Paid Time Off (PTO) in their bank,” Hornbuckle said in the letter. “We’ve also made the decision to maintain existing employees’ benefits, for individuals who are on our health plans and impacted by the layoffs or furloughs through June 30th.”
