Sam Chang and Marriott Partner on New Comfort Inn at 337 West 36th Street, Midtown Manhattan

Rendering of 337 West 36th Street

Located between Penn Station and Times Square, Marriott International and developer Sam Chang have partnered on another high-rise hotel property in Midtown, Manhattan. The final product is currently under construction at 337 West 36th Street and is expected to top-off at 23 stories.

The development replaces a vacant four-story building on the north side of 36th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. The narrow build site measures only 25 feet wide requiring a tall, slender tower to meet client requirements.

Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects, the hotel transitions from grey-palette stone to more traditional brick masonry. The building is topped by a spacious penthouse punctuated by reflective glass elements.

When complete, the Marriott-owned property will offer budget accommodations under the Comfort Inn moniker. Accommodations will include 89 guest rooms with 4 keys per floor, a cellar-level breakfast room and outdoor patio, and 10th floor terraces for select suites. The 23rd floor penthouse will occupy the entire width of the building.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: I believe in Sebastian Morris. (Why?) Because you do it on the best.

  2. Another Gene Kaufman nightmare.

  3. Gene Kaufman’s buildings are so uninspiring……so bland… pedestrian… this really the best we can get as infill?

  4. Comfort Inn is not a Marriott brand. It’s part of Choice Hotels International. Also Marriott tends to be asset light, meaning it manages or franchises as opposed to own.

  5. I don’t think the problem is Gene Kaufman. It’s Sam Chang thinking that Kaufman’s designs are good architecture. Kaufman won’t ever change, but Mr. Chang could easily change architects.

  6. It’s better than the hotel to its left.

    So much opportunity completely lost.

    • Yeh, don’t understand what’s wrong with it. It’s constricted by too buildings…. How nice do you expect it to look?
