Marriott has expanded its portfolio of hotels in New York City with a rather unique property.

 The $320 million tallest single-use hotel in North America combines the 378-room Courtyard hotel with the 261-suite Residence Inn hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

 Built and owned by G Holdings and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the dual-branded hotel will provide employment for 160 people in the New York area.

Located at 1717 Broadway, the 68-story building is just steps from Central Park and Times Square. The hotels offer guests convenient access to Carnegie Hall, the Broadway Theater District, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall.

As one of the top travel destinations in the world, New York City welcomed 54.3 million visitors in 2013.

Ideal for visitors to New York City, the hotels offer valet parking and share 6,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center located on the 35th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor sundeck for stretching, relaxing or seasonal sunning.

 Some guest rooms also feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of Central Park, Times Square and the Hudson River.

President & Chief Executive Officer of G Holdings, Harry Gross said, “In addition to fabulous views, a stellar New York City location and amenities galore, our 21st century telecommunications, with free international phone calls, digital systems and hi-tech wiring, set these hotels far above the standard that business travelers and tourists expect. We are proud to introduce these spectacular hotels to New York City.”

Artwork, which includes sculptures to full wall murals throughout the hotel by renowned abstract expressionist artist, William DeBilzan creates an unique experience for travelers staying at the hotel. The artwork traverses five floors of the hotel and is inspired by New York City, as well as themes of love and life.

Whether traveling on business or pleasure, guests are sure to appreciate the complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. In addition, each room delivers 1.25 gigabytes of bandwidth with horizontal and vertical fiber optical cable network that allows for fast, extensive use on multiple devices at one time. Smart TVs offer 60 HD channels.

The Courtyard by Marriott

Housed on floors 6-33, the Courtyard hotel guest rooms feature hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready.

 Large windows offer natural lighting and the chosen color palette of the walls and bedding offer a soothing and calm environment. An upgraded and spacious layout  creates an enhanced bathroom experience.

“The Bistro”, Courtyard’s popular food and beverage offering, serves up casual, flexible seating; easy access to food and higher quality, healthier menu options for breakfast; and light evening fare, including snacks, cocktails, wine and beer, for guests to unwind. Local beer and wine products will be featured to allow travelers a taste of the Big Apple.

Courtyard’s award-winning touch-screen concierge, GoBoard 4.0, provides local information, maps, weather and headline news on a 55-inch, LCD screen. Guests can also obtain immediate access to detailed flight information for local airports, popular entertainment and local event information, as well as walking directions.

The Residence Inn by Marriott

The Residence Inn hotel is situated on floors 37-65 and offers studio suites designed for stays of five nights or more.

 Each suite has a custom designed kitchenette with a coffeemaker, microwave oven and custom appliances.
