Fresh Meadows is seriously becoming a destination.
Two six-story hotels under the Marriott brand are being built in the neighborhood, marking another big hotel chain coming to the mostly residential area.
The Courier recently reported about the Mayflower Business Group’s 11-story Hilton hotel under construction in Fresh Meadows on 186th Street, which will target students and immigrants from China.
East West United Realty Development is working on this double Marriott project, which is on the other side of the Long Island Expressway, at 183-31 Horace Harding Expwy. The right building will be a Courtyard Hotel and the left will be Fairfield Inn and Suites, which are brands of Marriott hotels.
The hotels will offer a combined 218 rooms and underground parking.
Unlike Mayflower’s Hilton building, this double Marriott brand project will target all tourists coming to New York City, according to the developer representatives.
