VIDEO: A Day in New York and a Night with the Culturazzi

Marriott Marquis New York City

I recently spent a couple of days in New York exploring the city and attending the final 2012 event in the WIRED + Marriott Culturazzi series. Since I had some spare time I asked the Marriott concierge for his help in exploring all of the New York Christmas hotspots in just a few hours and wow did I see a lot. Here’s a brief video with highlights from my day in New York and my night as a Culturazzi. (Make sure your speakers are on, there’s sound and voiceovers!)

    Wow, your Marriott adventures always look so awesome. The hotel in New York looks gorgeous, I would love to visit. You’re right, this definitely isn’t my parents’ hotel. LOL In fact, I’m so jealous of your holiday adventure, I think I’ll run along and check the Acela schedule for next week now. Early gift to myself!

    Oh! I was in this Marriott earlier this year when the Romance Writers of America held their annual conference here. It has fabulous amenities and the rooms are gorgeous!!! Everyone I know who was there felt they were treated well!!!

      That’s awesome and what a cool conference! I was impressed as well, although the elevators baffled me at first LOL

    Wow. Marriott never ceases to amaze me. They’ve flawlessly mixed classic Marriott style with a modern elegance. Looking forward to seeing it in person!

      It’s not at just this lcoation either Stephanie, it’s their new(ish) design aesthetic and it’s really comfortable but elegant.
