Marriott International has opened the newly built Courtyard New York Manhattan/SoHo in SoHo’s Hudson Square area on Varick Street.

This 20-story hotel is a modern addition to a neighborhood known since the 1930s for its spacious lofts and printing houses. Today the neighborhood abounds with designers, graphic artists and architects, along with trendy restaurants and shops.

The Courtyard SoHo is the first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in New York to feature the brand’s new ‘Refreshing Business’ lobby, providing a variety of flexible seating options and free Wi-Fi access.  Guests can work or catch up with colleagues in one of the lobby’s intimate media pods or at a high-top table at Table 181, a wine bar with light food offerings.

Guests can also peruse the two-story lobby’s large interactive GoBoard for area attractions and information. The lower lobby level has a private meeting room for up to eight guests, a 400 square-foot fitness center, and a washer/dryer.

For quick bites on-the-go, guests can stop by the Market, located in the lobby and open 24 hours a day. In addition to snacks and sundries, guests can purchase treats from famous chocolatier and pastry chef Jacques Torres, whose shop is around the corner from the hotel.  The neighborhood has many choices nearby for restaurants and lounges, including the City Winery two blocks south of the hotel.

Guest rooms feature custom-fitted furnishings in warm earth tones with accents, including copper-and-bronze-jeweled tile work in the bathrooms. All guest rooms have a refrigerator, a coffee station, an in-room safe and free Wi-Fi.  Most rooms feature king-sized beds; some of them have pull-out sofas.

There are 36 double-bedded rooms and one king suite, with a separate living room area.  From the 17th through 20th floors, several rooms offer views of either the Hudson River or the Manhattan skyline. A unique design feature in some guest rooms is a glass wall which extends almost a foot beyond the surface of the building, giving guests an extra-wide view of the city.

The Courtyard New York Manhattan/SoHo is located at 181 Varick Street, between King Street and Charlton Street. It is located with easy vehicle access to the Holland Tunnel and is near all public transportation. Varick Street is two blocks from the heart of SoHo, with its many art galleries, shops, and restaurants.

With more than 900 locations in 34 countries, Courtyard is Marriott’s largest brand. For more information, visit
