marriott auction

The Gold Coast’s iconic Marriott Hotel will have it’s 5-star furnishings go under the hammer this Monday after COVID-19 sent the hotel into a fast-tracked $35 million major refurbishment of its entire building.

In a series of auctions over the next few weeks the entire 5-star furnishings and display items of the Marriott Hotel will go under the hammer all starting from just $1 and all completely unreserved.  

 “There are even items from the Presidential and Deluxe Suites featuring furniture by Ralph Lauren and other individual designer pieces,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.  

The auction features everything from grand pianos, to display units, high end lounge suites and chairs, artworks, lighting, storage units and tables.

 “The sheer scale of items in this auction means there is something for everyone with over 300 items in this first auction alone,” Mr. Hames continued.

 “The 28 year old tourism icon is known for hosting celebrities and other famous personalities from all over the world so who knows maybe a celebrity has sat on a chair someone might buy, or placed their glass on one of the tables,” said Mr. Hames.

With the fast-tracking of many government projects across the country Lloyds Auctions predicts there will be many more private establishments coming forward looking to fasttrack refurbishments especially on the Gold Coast as Queensland’s no.1 holiday destination.

 “We expect many private companies in the hospitality industry to take opportunity of the down time to renovate and upgrade to be ready to bounce back when the time comes,” said Mr. Hames.

If you’re interested in owning a piece of Gold Coast Hotel history then head to where the online auction ends this Monday the 21st of September from 2pm.
