Marriott Hotels and Resorts has unveiled the multi-million dollar renovation of the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. The extensive renovation is the brand’s reinvented lobby includes, two signature restaurants and lounges, where guests can work, socialize, relax, eat and drink.
The design was created by the interior architecture and design firm Forrest Perkins of Washington D.C. The design was inspired by New Year’s Eve and the traditional ball drop that takes place in Times Square. The multi-level seating in the Broadway Lounge offers guests the choice of being in the middle of the action or of enjoying their privacy. The lounge is richly colored in deep turquoise, petrol blue, dark ginger and grays. The menu features sharing and artisanal tasting dishes, as well as offerings inspired by New York City food trucks, including tacos, sliders and flatbreads.
Mike Stengel, vice president, market general manager for Marriott International, said, "Even though we celebrated the New York Marriott Marquis' 25th Anniversary last year, it feels like a brand new hotel opening. We still have the great staff and service our guests have come to know, but now it's in a whole new setting. Our guests are thrilled with the transformation we've undergone this past year."
