Is There New York City Timeshare Planned for Marriott’s New Tallest Hotel?

In a joint venture project between Marriott’s Courtyard and Residence Inn brands, Marriott has announced plans to build New York City’s tallest standalone hotel.

To be located at 1717 Broadway at 54th Street, the hotel will be over 752 feet tall and will become the tallest standalone hotel building (meaning a hotel that does not also contain office or residential space) in New York City. The building is planned to include only Marriott accommodations and amenities, restaurants and shopping.

The property does not call for any Marriott Vacation Club timeshares, a separate company under the Marriott brand. It will include some 378 Courtyard by Marriott hotel rooms on floors 6 through 32 and another 261 Residence Inn by Marriott suites on floors 36 through 64. Additionally there will be floors designated to amenities such as exercise areas, lounges and business centers for each of the two Marriott brands.

New York City Timeshare

Competitive properties for both overnight and extended stays in New York City include urban timeshare at the Manhattan Club, Hilton Club New York, and the Hilton Grand Vacations Club, West 57th Street.

Currently the new Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn Manhattan/Central Park is scheduled to open late in 2013.
