New Residence Inn by Marriott® Orangeburg Rockland/Bergen to open November 7, 2013

Orangeburg, NY, November 6, 2013 – Colwen Hotels announces that the new Residence Inn by Marriott Orangeburg Rockland/Bergen (NY) opens to guests on Thursday, November 7, 2013 – the third Marriott to be opened by Colwen Hotels in 2013. 

The project received full zoning approval in March of 2012 and construction commenced in November 2012. The property is 91,000 square feet and has a country setting within 3 miles of Bergen County, NJ. It is the only upscale extended-stay property serving Rockland County and eastern Bergen County, NJ within minutes of the western side of the Tappan Zee Bridge. It is minutes from the Fort Lee/Englewood Cliffs area directly off of the Palisades Parkway at Exit 5.   

The property was developed as part of the Orangeburg Commons complex on Route 303. It is owned by FB Orangetown Hotel LLC, whose principals include Messrs. Rick Birdoff and Jay Furman. A ribbon cutting/opening ceremony is being planned for the hotel later in the year. It is the first new hotel to open in the two Counties within 10 years.

The new Residence Inn, with four floors and one hundred twenty-nine suites is perfectly situated in Orangeburg, NY, a convenient 12 miles from New York City. With easy access to Westchester County and northern New Jersey, those in need of extended stays for long-term assignments or relocations to the Rockland/Bergen County - New York City area can comfortably call the Residence Inn Orangeburg home for a week, a month or longer.  As an Extended Stay hotel the new Residence Inn by Marriott caters to business travelers and leisure guests. The non-smoking property offers pet-friendly, spacious suites all featuring full kitchens, separate sleeping, living and work spaces, as well as an indoor heated saltwater pool, fitness center, and high speed wired and wireless internet. 

While its ideal proximity provides easy access to both New York City and Westchester County, it offers a convenient alternative out of the competitive price tier of most NYC locations without sacrificing style or amenities. The refined urban décor includes unexpected and distinctive custom finishes and the design offers features such as oversized windows that fill the entire lobby and versatile function space with natural light. Both business and leisure travelers will discover an exceptional stay at the spectacular new Residence Inn Orangeburg Rockland/Berger.
