As great as our 2017 NYE at the Hyatt Centric was, we suspected that things could be even better if we stayed at the Marriott Marquis instead. We had stayed at the Marquis on 12/30/2017 and then we walked across Broadway to spend 12/31/2017-1/01/2018 at the Centric. We did this to avoid dealing with the notorious issues that can emerge as people arrive in NYC for NYE. I kept checking for the Marquis’s availability throughout the entire year with no luck. Finally on 12/27, I was searching on my Mac and voila! NYE was available, I suspect this availability was due to the rainy forecast for 12/31. It is worth noting that the mobile app did not show any availability.
We ended up having an amazing night. I will post a quick review of the hotel which won’t be flattering, but despite all that, this was a night our family will cherish for many years to come.
