Hotel Review: New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge
For the past several years, Brooklyn is where young urbanites have been fleeing from the over priced island, known as Manhattan, in search of space and affordability. In boroughs that were once family driven and affordable, there’s been an evident shift in demographics moving in, and travelers interested in exploring Brooklyn. Beautiful restaurants and bars have sprung up, designer boutiques have moved in, and renovations are taking place all over the city. One of those multi-million dollar facelifts has taken place at the iconic New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge.
The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1998, and was the first branded hotel in Brooklyn in more than 60 years. Situated perfectly on Adams Street, it was the prime choice for those looking for quick and easy access to the Big Apple, and being the third largest banquet facility, an easy option for weddings and events.
A 45-million dollar renovation boasts a new décor that bridges the gap between the past and present. Newly remodeled remodeled guest rooms (667 rooms), new banquet facilities, ample parking, and within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and subway lines, makes it the perfect basecamp for exploring both Brooklyn and NYC.
The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, sits in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, close to the MetroTech Center, Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill, Barclay’s Center,the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
As part of Brooklyn Marriott’s commitment to celebrate local artists and artisans, the hotel tapped into nearby Bushwick Art Collective by Novo Arts Studio and Marlaina Deppe. Novo Arts Studio is an artistic think tank that works collaboratively with graphic designers, photographers, painters and sculptors to create custom pieces. The hotel acquired several works of art, including a narrative abstract wall installation that illustrates the borough’s evolution.
The hotel’s renovation adds the exclusive M Club Lounge, as well as a chic meeting room located in the M Club Lounge, featuring great views and wall-to-wall carpet featuring a Downtown Brooklyn map print. Guest rooms are chic and offer top-notch amenities.
The Bar, hosts a curated menu, providing a taste of the borough, showcasing local food purveyors such as Brooklyn Roasting Company, Brooklyn Winery, Ovenly bakery and McClure’s pickles. Guests can sit amoung the comfy couches and seating areas, or sit fireside in the beautifully designed and open concept “library” area.
