QUINCY, MA-The Flatley Co., owner of the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel has agreed to drop its lawsuit against Marriott International Inc., which manages the hotel. The two companies issued a joint statement in which they say that they “resolved their issues” and will “end all litigation between them.”

Locally based Flatley has also dismissed its litigation against Avendra, the company that provides procurement services to Marriott’s hotels.

The specifics of the resolution were not disclosed. However, both companies said that the “communications issues, which gave rise to their misunderstandings, have been clarified, and that there will be no significant changes to the existing management agreement and no payments by either party.”

Flatley had reportedly sued Marriott, as well as Avendra, claiming that the Bethesda, MD-based hotel manager hid its profits. But now Thomas Flatley, principal of The Flatley Co., says, “We are pleased with Marriott’s recent communications to its hotel owners, and we are very happy to again be working closely with Marriott. We are confident that, together, we will continue to provide our guests with the finest hotel experience possible on the South Shore of Boston.”

James M. Sullivan, Marriott’s executive vice president of development, emphasizes that the company is satisfied that it was able to resolve the issues it had with Flatley without litigation.

The 465-room Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel opened in May 2001.
