McSam Hotel Group To Join Forces With Marriott For Five NYC Hotels
Sam Chang’s McSam Hotel Group is joining forces with Marriott International to bring several new ground-up hotels to NYC.
McSam has partnered up with a host of other brands, but these hotels will be the group’s first Marriott products in the city. Marriott has given its blessing for five new hotels, two of which will be a dual-branded property on West 36th Street, the Commercial Observer reports.
The dual-branded hotel will be at 338 West 36th St, and includes a 286-room Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites at the bottom, and a 280-key Marriott SpringHill Suites on top. Other hotels planned as part of the agreement are a 350-room Marriott at the JFK International Airport, a 225-room Marriott Fairfield Inn at 538 West 58th St, and a 113-room Town Place Suites by Marriott at 322-326 West 44th St.
All five hotels will be designed by Gene Kaufman, and the earliest arrival will be the Fairfield Inn at West 58th, which is scheduled to open in July. Elsewhere in the world of Marriott, the on-again, off-again engagement between the hotel giant and Starwood has finally sprinted towards the altar, creating the world’s largest hotel company in the wake of the nuptials.
