The New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square

This hotel is really big and impressive with it’s 45 floors, over 2000 rooms, 12 elevators, 3 restaurants (one of them is panoramic), a theater, a huge fitness room … And all this in the middle of Times Square.
I’ll give you a virtual tour of this place. I’m sure that after reading the article, you’ll want to reserve your stay there, or at least have dinner or an evening at one of its restaurants.

What is the history of the New York Marquis Hotel?

This hotel opened in 1985 but was strongly criticized at first. Indeed, they had to demolish five Broadway theaters to build it. All ended well, because they created a large theater downstairs, to please everyone’s taste.
Anyway, this hotel will turn 35 in 2020!
It is part of the Marriott Hotels & Resorts hotel chain, with 505 hotels throughout the world, and several Marriott Marquis hotels in America (Atlanta, San Francisco, San Diego, Washington DC, Houston and NYC).

How are the rooms?

The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. They have nothing to do with a “cheap” hotel, the range is fairly high.
But frankly, the decor is from the 80’s in parts of it. However, that adds a vintage touch 😉

This is a room in the “Times Square View” category, located on the 27th floor. The large window offers a breathtaking view of Times Square.
