The new 68-story high-rise Courtyard and Residence Inn Manhattan/Central Park will open in late 2013 in New York City. The property, operated under a franchise agreement between Granite Broadway Development and Marriott International, will house a 378-room Courtyard by Marriott and 261-room Residence Inn by Marriott Broadway. The hotels will have separate lobbies; the Courtyard guest rooms will be on floors 6 through 32, and the Residence Inn rooms will be on floors 36 through 64. On-site will be a restaurant, a lounge with a terrace, and a fitness center. Designed by architect Nobutaka Ashihara, the tower is being billed as the tallest stand-alone hotel building (without office or residential space) in New York.
