More than two years ago, labor disputes at the Hartford Marriott Downtown marred the hotel's opening, chasing away some business from it and the Connecticut Convention Center next door.

Wrapped up in the tussle was a legal fight between the city and the hotel's owner, the Waterford Group, over whether a city ''living wage'' ordinance applied. Waterford said it didn't.

Mayor Eddie A. Perez insisted it did, and he threatened to revoke a 15-year tax deal worth an estimated $30 million. In May 2006, Perez filed suit. The city and Waterford have agreed to a settlement.
