Hotel and Conference Center
The Marriott Hotel at the WTC Site was a 22-story hotel with 820 rooms, with meeting and support space. Most of its customers were business travelers. Lower Manhattan needs to replace this hotel space to serve existing and expected new businesses and residents, as well as
the visitors to new cultural and Memorial uses.
Downtown lacks a large venue for conferences. Conference facilities and hotel are desirable on the Site because of its central location and excellent access to the regional transportation network. The Redevelopment Program could include a hotel with up to 800 rooms and up to 150,000 square feet of conference space. The location and conceptual design of any hotel is still being studied and will be determined by LMDC, the City, the Port Authority, and the Port Authority’s net lessees at a later date.
