Marriott International plans to build the tallest stand-alone hotel in New York. The building will be 752 feet and nine inches high tall.
The Courtyard and Residence Inn Manhattan/Central Park will be a 68-story property housing two different hotels—the 378-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel and the 261-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel—at 1717 Broadway (at 54th Street). The multi-million dollar project is scheduled to open in late 2013 and will be managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts.
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 for the Courtyard on the 4th floor. 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 overlook Broadway. Both hotels will share a fitness facility on the 34th floor.
