What are my rights if I was employed for exactly 2 weeks at a hotel and signed a non-solicitation agreement to accept the job?

Today I resigned and accepted a new job at another hotel same brand but a corporate property. Is the non-solicitation clause null and void or would it still stand since I will have all of the proprietary information as I did working at the franchise? Its in the same market and geographical area. If so, it will not allow me to do my job that I just accepted.

There is no way to answer your question without reviewing the non-solicitation agreement. A non-solicitation agreement is a contract contracts are enforced as per their plain terms. To answer your question, bring the contract to an attorney, who can review the contract's language and the facts of the situation with you.
