After more than a year, the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge announced the unveiling of its $45 million transformation, ending a three-phase renovation.

The third phase focused on renovating the 667 guestrooms to mimic the Brooklyn lifestyle, with urban-inspired color pallets, fabrics that emulate the culture and landmarks, and an art piece that zooms in on a piece of a mural that is located in the lobby.

 "Through the hotel’s total metamorphosis, we have accomplished our main goal: to provide an experiential journey into one of the most diverse, innovative and eccentric destinations in the United States and the world,” says Sam Ibrahim, general manager, “Our renovations are deliberate and thoughtful, allowing our guests to take home an authentic taste of the borough,”

The first phase worked on the bar, front desk and M Club Lounge. Phase two focused on the redesign of the Grand Ballroom—the largest in Brooklyn—and its 44,000 square feet of meeting space.

“We began as a leader in New York City hospitality and are proud to continue to set the bar incredibly high in terms of personalized service, innovative design, size and location,” says Joshua Muss, principal of Muss Development and an owner of the hotel. “When Brooklyn Marriott embarked on this $45 million project, we were determined to evolve with our transforming community and uphold our distinguished legacy of welcoming business and leisure travelers to Brooklyn.”

This year, Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa has been named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s top four resorts in Colorado and top nine in the Western United States.  

 

Northern Lights travel expert Off the Map Travel has announced eight new “Aurora on the Water” experiences designed to capture the Aurora in a unique way. Running from September 2019 to March 2020, the eight program options feature views everywhere from a luxury yacht or kayak, on top of a frozen lake, looking down over the fjords, or drifting on the Arctic waters. The itineraries for each program can be personalized for the needs and optimal experience of each guest.

 

Recognized for its sustainable performance and design, The Source Hotel has been awarded LEED Silver certification. Owned by Zeppelin Development, the 92,000-square-foot building was destined to meet LEED standards from its inception with sustainability at the forefront of the project.
