Fairfield Inn & Suites

New York, NY
OTO Development
107,000 sf

Construction is recently complete for this three-star, limited service hotel, the first of two new hotels for OTO Development, which is expanding into this burgeoning market sector in New York City.

This new 239-key facility on West 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue operates as a Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites opposite the iconic New York Post Office.

Helpern Architects’ design for the 23-story. 107,000-sf silver-gray and glass building includes a Helpern-signature 24’-high lobby whose glass facade creates high visibility for the hotel at street level. Meanwhile, 230 feet above the street, a landscaped, guests-only roof terrace offers spectacular views across Downtown Manhttan.

Other features include a remarkable 23-ft-cantilevered, single-beam glass marquee; a ground-floor garden off a limited-dining area, and a board room.

Designed to high standards of sustainability, the hotel received LEED Silver certification.
