Marriott International and G Holdings have opened North America’s tallest hotel, 68 floors above New York City.
The building, the tallest single-use hotel in North America, in Midtown Manhattan, features two Marriott hotels, the 378-room Courtyard hotel and 261-suite Residence Inn hotel.
Built and owned by G Holdings and managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts, the dual-branded hotel host USD$320 million to develop and will provide employment for 160 associates in the New York area.
“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.”
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.
“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 and Chief Executive Officer of G Holdings.
Some guest rooms also feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of Central Park, Times Square and the Hudson River.
