The New York Marriott Marquis has unveiled the results of its multi-million dollar refurbishment, which includes redesigned guest rooms, public spaces, restaurants and events spaces.
The hotel opened in 1985 on West 46th Street and Broadway, and its redesign has been inspired by Times Square’s billboard lights under the concept of ‘Kaleidoscope of Energy’.
The hotel’s public and event spaces have been redesigned by Stonehill Taylor, while Sawyer and Company led the renovation of the guest rooms and suites.
The eighth-floor lobby features a redesigned space with reception desks at the north side of the hotel, separated by archways made of wood panelling, along with a lit acrylic 3D sculpture by Parachilna on a plinth and Kaleidoscope-inspired NYC artwork by Kalisher.
The hotel’s 1,971 guest rooms have a new modern design, with new features including mounted HD TV’s, larger wardrobes, walk-in showers “with spa-like lighting” and platform beds. As part of Marriott Hotels’ partnership with TED, guests will have access to in-room curated content during their stay.
New York Marriott Marquis has also partnered with the Union Square Hospitality Group and Union Square Events for the three updated restaurants.
Broadway Lounge offers a menu of wood-fired pizzas, snacks and cocktails amid two-storey floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Times Square, and guests can also enjoy the neighbouring Perch outdoor terrace.
