Hotel Deals in Manhattan Whet the Appetites of Savvy Business Travelers

The New York Marriott East Side Welcomes Corporate Guests Hungry for Smart Savings

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - Traveling on business has its advantages. There are per diem allowances, for instance, company dinners and, at the New York Marriott East Side, plenty of opportunities during work and after-hours to enjoy a sophisticated business hotel. From savory happy hours, to packages tailored to the specific needs of corporate travelers, the Midtown Manhattan hotel deals at this property are often crafted with the businessperson in mind.

Case in point is the happy hour at the hotel's 525LEX restaurant. As one of the most exciting destinations among Manhattan's East Side restaurants, 525LEX serves comfort food made with high-quality, often local ingredients in compositions that are far from ordinary. Its pulled-pork sliders, for example, are topped with apple slaw for a happy union between sweet and savory. Even sweeter, those apples are sourced from the local Red Jacket Orchards.

Guests who drop in at 525LEX between 5 and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday can taste the sliders -- along with Sam Adams draught beer, Sobieski vodka drinks and Brooklyn Bay nuts -- for a fraction of New York prices. (Everything is $4 or less.) Not only is the happy hour a great way for business guests to unwind after work or continue casual networking, it's also a pocketbook-friendly way to try one of the best restaurants in East Side Manhattan. And the setting, which offers a relaxed, contemporary vibe, holds its own among the city's most stylish destinations.

The happy hour is also an ideal counterpart to the property's Road Warrior package, one of the most compelling hotel deals in Manhattan for corporate guests. Designed by and for business travelers, the Road Warrior package includes breakfast for one, wired and wireless in-room Internet access and unlimited local and domestic U.S. long-distance calls. Not only does the package allow for easier expense reports, but it lets those traveling for work access the hotel's many business-friendly features. Guest rooms, for instance, include plug-in panels, generous work desks, speakerphones and voicemail. Plus the hotel enjoys a gracious 16,671 square feet of event space ideal for conferences of every size.

With rates starting at $229 per night for the Road Warriors package, and the happy hour available during the workweek, there's no better hotel in New York City for business travelers who like to work and play with equal gusto. Whether they're looking to stay on budget, conduct a productive conference or have something fun to do at the end of the day, this is one Manhattan hotel that can make it happen.

Travelers are invited to secure the Road Warriors package, which is available through September 1, 2014, by using the promotional code NCL when booking by phone at 1-800-228-9290 or online at http://www.marriott.com/NYCEA.
