New Courtyard by Marriott Hotel to Open in New York’s Herald Square

Construction will begin this fall on a new 168-room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in New York City’s Herald Square. The hotel will occupy the former Atlantic Bank of New York building on the corner of 6th Avenue and 35th Street, and it has an expected completion date in early 2012.

“This will be our seventh Courtyard by Marriott hotel in New York City when it opens in 2012, and we are excited to be in this fabulous location, near Macy’s and New York’s Penn Station,” said David Marriott, chief operations officer, eastern region, the Americas. “We look forward to managing this hotel and incorporating all the hugely successful elements of the Courtyard brand.”

The hotel will feature the brand’s “refreshing business” lobby, which will boast the new GoBoard® technology, a 55-inch LCD interactive touch screen with local information, maps weather, news, business and sports headlines. Each room will be equipped with flat-panel television, complimentary Wi-Fi and a work area with a multi-level desk.
