Located between Penn Station and Times Square, Marriott International and developer Sam Chang have partnered on another high-rise hotel property in Midtown, Manhattan. The final product is currently under construction at 337 West 36th Street and is expected to top-off at 23 stories.
The development replaces a vacant four-story building on the north side of 36th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. The narrow build site measures only 25 feet wide requiring a tall, slender tower to meet client requirements.
Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects, the hotel transitions from grey-palette stone to more traditional brick masonry. The building is topped by a spacious penthouse punctuated by reflective glass elements.
When complete, the Marriott-owned property will offer budget accommodations under the Comfort Inn moniker. Accommodations will include 89 guest rooms with 4 keys per floor, a cellar-level breakfast room and outdoor patio, and 10th floor terraces for select suites. The 23rd floor penthouse will occupy the entire width of the building.
