Brooklyn marriott hotel turns 10

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz joined the staff and owners of the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge to celebrate the hotel’s tenth anniversary. Since opening in July 1998, the Brooklyn Marriott has nearly doubled in size and is Marriott International’s second largest hotel in New York City.

“A decade ago, the Marriott became an early, shining example of what we now call the ‘Brooklyn Renaissance’ and, under the visionary leadership of its general manager, Sam Ibrahim, has since nearly doubled in size and remains a world-class destination for leisure and business travelers alike from around the world,” said Markowitz. “I applaud Marriott International, Muss Development and Sam for having a vision of Brooklyn’s bright future and playing a large role in making that dream come true. On behalf of all Brooklynites, I say bravo to Brooklyn Marriott for ten extraordinarily successful years — with many more to come.”
