The extended-stay hotel at Lexington Avenue was previously owned by real estate heavyweight Harry Helmsley, husband of Leona Helmsley, and called the Helmsley Middletowne Hotel. Converted from tenement apartments in 1928, the Helmsley trust sold the property for $41.6 million in 2009. Marriott took charge of operations in 2013.
