Marriott and G Holdings today announced the opening of an iconic addition to the New York City skyline, a combined 378-room Courtyard hotel and 261-suite Residence Inn hotel in Midtown Manhattan. 

The $320 million tallest single-use hotel in North America is located at 1717 Broadway. Built and owned by G Holdings and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the dual-branded hotel will provide employment for 160 associates in the New York area.

The impressive 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.

“This opening is a prime example of an ideal dual-branded hotel. Thank you to our long-time partner, Harry Gross and his family, this will surely be both brands’ crown jewel,” said Janis Milham, senior vice president of Modern Essentials and Extended Stay for Marriott International. “The new hotels’ contemporary designs and stunning views coupled with our friendly associates will surely make the property a great ambassador for the bustling city.”

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 spectacular views of Central Park, Times Square and the Hudson River.

4Hoteliers Image Library“We brought the first Courtyard by Marriott to Times Square, in the center of Manhattan in 1998, and these new hotels, the Residence Inn Central Park and Courtyard by Marriott Central Park, are the most innovative hotels we’ve built to date,” said Harry Gross, President & Chief Executive Officer of G Holdings. 

“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,” Gross added.

Whether traveling on business or pleasure, guests will enjoy 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. 

Groundbreaking artwork, which includes breathtaking sculptures to full wall murals throughout the hotel by renowned abstract expressionist artist, William DeBilzan creates a unique, new 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.
