Housed on floors 6-33, the Courtyard hotel guest rooms feature modern design with a contemporary feel. The room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing, and getting ready. The property also features The Bistro, Courtyard’s food and beverage offering.

The Residence Inn hotel is situated on floors 37-65 and offers studio suites designed for stays of five nights or more. Each suite has a custom designed kitchenette with a coffeemaker, microwave oven, and custom appliances. Additionally, the hotel offers grocery delivery service, dry cleaning services, and an onsite guest laundry room.


The hotels offer valet parking and share 6,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center located on the 35th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an outdoor sundeck. Some guestrooms also feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of Central Park, Times Square and the Hudson River.

Other features include complimentary WiFi throughout, and each room delivers 1.25 gigabytes of bandwidth with horizontal and vertical fiber optical cable network that allows for fast, extensive use on multiple devices at one time. Smart TVs offer 60 HD channels.

“We brought the first Courtyard by Marriott to Times Square, in the center of Manhattan in 1998, and these new hotels, the Residence Inn Central Park and Courtyard by Marriott Central Park, are the most innovative hotels we’ve built to date,” said Harry Gross, president and chief executive officer of G Holdings.
