Marriott Opens Tallest Hotel in New York as Demand Rises

Marriott International Inc., the owner of brands including Ritz-Carlton and Renaissance Hotels, is opening the tallest U.S. hotel building in New York as tourism in the city reaches a record.

The 68-story tower at the corner of Broadway and 54th Street houses a 378-room Courtyard hotel and a 261-room Residence Inn. The property reaches almost 753 feet (230 meters), making it the tallest hotel without accompanying offices or residential space in the U.S., said Kathleen Duffy, a spokeswoman for Marriott’s hotels in New York City. The two-tower Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, a mixed-use development with a Mandarin Oriental hotel, is 750 feet.
