Some context: The hotel, which was part of the WTC complex, started evacuating guests before the first tower collapsed. It was fully evacuated before the second tower collapsed. The second tower collapse is what destroyed the hotel.
A couple from Seattle filmed footage inside the Marriott hotel during the attack. They called @KOMONews from their room. Their footage, which shows people jumping to their deaths from the towers, was released under FOIA by the NIST several years later.
Forty people, including two employees, died in the hotel. Most were evacuated well before the second tower collapsed onto it.

The 9/11 history museum and portions of the memorial are now on the land where the hotel once stood (the fountains are where the towers were)
