If you were in New York in June for New York Pride, WorldPride, Stonewall50, and Pride Festival 2019, you’ll recall the importance of which hotel you choose to stay at. Location, quality, room size, and comfort are all important when selecting accommodation when you travel. Marriot properties aren’t just amazing, the company is committed to the LGBT community and are proud to be supporters of Pride events in New York and across the United States. With a recent multi-million-dollar renovation, the New York Marriot Downtown is the ultimate location for your new visit to New York.
The New York Marriott Downtown is a stunning hotel to make your home base when staying in New York. The hotel has just completed a massive multi-million-dollar renovation, upgrading the Marriott Downtown to a stunningly modern, and gorgeous property.
The rooms are modern and offer all the amenities you could think of, with spectacular views of the Hudson River. Guest rooms are larger than the typical New York hotel room. The spacious room are outfitted with beautiful Marriott quality beds, with crisp, fresh linens, and new pillows.
For today’s connected travellers will appreciate that there are multiple plug-ins and USB ports in the room, but most importantly, right at the bedside. You can easily plug in 4 devices at your bedside, so your devices and you can both recharge before you head out on your next adventure! For down time, each room has a flat screen TV and all streaming services for your entertainment pleasure.
Guest room bathrooms have also been completely upgraded with beautiful marble, stainless steel, and glass. The bathtubs have been removed and replaced with walk-in showers with beautiful barn-style glass doors. Linens have been upgraded, and premium toiletries stocked. The lighting also received an upgrade, with soft, front-lit vanities. Gurl, these bathrooms are going to help you look so fresh and ready for that big night out – the boys won’t even know what hit them!
New York has the reputation of being the City That Never Sleeps, and the New York Marriott Downtown embraces that mantra too. There’s 24-hour room service for you night owls and a brand-new fitness center and gym with 2,500 square feet of exercise space, also open 24 hours a day. You can stay looking swoll on your gaycation with new, state-of-the-art equipment.
New York City is a big place, and though Manhattan is a small island, getting from one part of the island to another can be a hassle. The New York Marriott Downtown has the advantage of being in the downtown district. Close to multiple transportation options including the subway and metro, you’re already on the West Side and close to great gay areas of Manhattan: the Meat Packing District, Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen.
The property is also close to the 9/11 Memorial, Battery Park, Wall Street, and Fearless Girl Statue (a gay icon) are all within walking distance of the New York Marriott Downtown. If you are looking for food, the hotel has Bill’s Bar & Burger downstairs in the lobby (an NYC burger institution), and Bill’s West Side Bar for happy hour, business meetings, or slinging one back before you head out for a night in the city!
With its lustrous interior, fabulous rooms, lavish amenities, and staff that goes over and beyond helping with whatever your needs may be, the New York Marriott Downtown is where you need to stay when you come visit the Big Apple.
