After more than a year, the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge announced the unveiling of its $45 million transformation, ending a three-phase renovation.

The third phase focused on renovating the 667 guestrooms to mimic the Brooklyn lifestyle, with urban-inspired color pallets, fabrics that emulate the culture and landmarks, and an art piece that zooms in on a piece of a mural that is located in the lobby.

 "Through the hotel’s total metamorphosis, we have accomplished our main goal: to provide an experiential journey into one of the most diverse, innovative and eccentric destinations in the United States and the world,” says Sam Ibrahim, general manager, “Our renovations are deliberate and thoughtful, allowing our guests to take home an authentic taste of the borough,”

The first phase worked on the bar, front desk and M Club Lounge. Phase two focused on the redesign of the Grand Ballroom—the largest in Brooklyn—and its 44,000 square feet of meeting space.

“We began as a leader in New York City hospitality and are proud to continue to set the bar incredibly high in terms of personalized service, innovative design, size and location,” says Joshua Muss, principal of Muss Development and an owner of the hotel. “When Brooklyn Marriott embarked on this $45 million project, we were determined to evolve with our transforming community and uphold our distinguished legacy of welcoming business and leisure travelers to Brooklyn.”

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
