TROY, NY – Visitors to the Collar City will now have a new hotel they can stay in, with the opening of the Courtyard by Marriott waterfront hotel on River Street.

The five-story concrete masonry structure is prominently located between the city’s largest office complex and the Hoosick Street Bridge along 500 feet of the Hudson River.

Officials said the continued growth in the city’s tech and corporate office sectors, as well as lodging demands related to the city’s colleges, has fueled the need for additional rooms in the city and was a primary reason for the project.

The hotel, located at 515 River St., was developed by Kevin Bette, president of Latham-based First Columbia, which also owns the neighboring Hedley Building on River Street.

Bette said the 132-room hotel is being managed by DelMonte Hotel Group. The new hotel also brought 29 new jobs to the area.

It’s the first AC for Northeast Ohio, part of the Marriott chain, with a contemporary, European flair.

The brand was founded in 1998 in Spain by Antonio Catalan (“AC”), who partnered with Marriott in 2011. Since then, the hotel chain has expanded quickly in the United States, with 54 hotels in 24 states. In Ohio, there are two in the Cincinnati area, and one outside of Columbus, in Dublin.
