Marriott International officially opened a dual-branded 123-room Courtyard and 95-room Fairfield Inn & Suites property in Fresh Meadows, N.Y. The hotels are owned by East West United Realty Development Group, and managed by Great American Hotel Group of Dover, N.H. General manager Jon Kozma will lead the management team at both properties.
The properties offer access to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Citi Field, St. John’s College, Queens College, Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and the Aquaduct Racetrack. The hotels are also nearby to the Queens Museum, the New York Hall of Science, Queens Botanical Park, Queens County Farm Museum and Riker’s Island.
"Attracting both business and leisure travelers, the Fresh Meadows area is an ideal location for this dual opening," Janis Milham, SVP, classic select brands for Marriott International, said in a statement. "Each brand offers distinct amenities and services that tailor to all visitors."
The Courtyard New York Queens/Fresh Meadows includes the brand's latest room design, which offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette were also used.
The new room design offers flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “Luggage Drop” and plug personal devices into the “Tech Drop” ledge for seamless technology integration. Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also has a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.
The Courtyard New York Queens/Fresh Meadows has the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms.
