Endeavor Hospitality Group announced plans to open the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Midtown West in the heart of Manhattan’s trending Hudson Yards District. The 399-room, 28-floor hotel is slated to open in Spring 2019.  

Hudson Yards is New York’s hottest up-and-coming project, referred to as the “city within the city,” and is transforming the west side of New York. The new Courtyard New York Midtown West will be one of the Brand’s most well-appointed Courtyard properties, appealing to groups attending conferences at the Jacob Javits Convention Center and surrounding areas as well as business and leisure travelers. The property will be the first of several hotels Endeavor Hospitality Group will open in New York City. 

The Courtyard New York Midtown West’s guest rooms range from 270 to 700 square feet and include 23 suites. Most rooms have floor to ceiling windows, offering exceptional city and Hudson River views. In addition, the hotel will have over 1,700 square feet of meeting space and a full-service restaurant, bar and lounge with a large skylight.  

The grand-scale atrium lobby will feature a two-story living wall featuring six varietals of succulents. Guestrooms offer the familiar Courtyard comfort with added touches such as sateen bedding, hypoallergenic comforters, plush bathrobes and Jacquard-loom designed bath towels. All king rooms also offer a loveseat that converts to a twin sleeper. The property is dog-friendly and offers a Puparazzi package which includes a plush dog bed, bowls, doggie bags, and local map of pet friendly places to visit around New York City. Additional complimentary amenities offered are Forget-Me-Not travel essentials, Wi-Fi and a 24-hour workout facility with the latest LifeFitness equipment. 

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.
