A Premier Hotel Experience

Located at 100 Frank W. Burr Blvd., the Marriott at Glenpointe is just three miles from the George Washington Bridge and 15 minutes from Manhattan. The full-service hotel is ideal for getaways, business meetings and social functions. The Marriott at Glenpointe has an on-site sales and events team to plan and execute flawless meetings and events. The hotel recently was ranked among the top 2 percent out of 358 Marriott hotels nationwide in the brand’s Event Satisfaction Survey.

A multimillion-dollar renovation recently transformed the Marriott at Glenpointe’s lobby, ballrooms, restaurants and 26,500 square feet of meeting space. Key to the lobby renovation was the adaptation of Marriott’s “Great Room” concept, which incorporates comfortable seating and plenty of room to work, socialize or relax. A planned multimillion-dollar refurbishment soon will update the hotel’s guest rooms and suites, guest bathrooms and guestroom corridors.
