Marriott has signed a franchise agreement with Granite Broadway Development to develop the Courtyard and Residence Inn Manhattan/Central Park, a new 68-floor property housing two distinctly different hotels - the 378-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel and the 261-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel - at 1717 Broadway (at 54th Street) in New York.

The multi-million dollar project will open in late 2013 and be managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts.

Designed by architect Nobutaka Ashihara, the building will rise 752 feet nine inches high, making it one of the tallest stand-alone hotel buildings (without office or residential space) in New York.

The hotels will share a main entrance and arrival lobby on 54th Street, with public areas for the Residence Inn on the 3rd floor and on the 4th floor for the Courtyard.

Guest rooms for the Courtyard will be located on floors 6 through 32 and for Residence Inn on floors 36 through 64, with separate elevator banks to serve the guestrooms and public areas for each brand.

In addition to ground floor retail space, a leased restaurant will occupy the 2nd floor, and a 5th floor lounge and terrace with outdoor seating will offer views overlooking Broadway. Both hotels will share a fitness facility on the 34th floor.

This project is a long time coming, and we believe that these two brands, along with the leased retail shops and restaurant, will offer needed services in this part of Manhattan, said Ronnie Gross, vice president of Granite Broadway Development. The building will be absolutely stunning, and the hotels are the right lodging brands for this wonderful location.
