Long Island Marriott

by Joseph Go Chua

Located in Uniondale in Nassau County, the Long Island Marriott is a 615-room, 11-story hotel offering a fitness center, an indoor pool, a business center, and 43,000 square feet of event space ideal for conferences, corporate meetings, and weddings. Guests also enjoy two onsite restaurants and several lounges and bars. The hotel is conveniently located adjacent to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, a sporting event and conference complex that is undergoing a $260 million renovation. Other nearby lifestyle destinations include retail shopping, state parks, Nassau Community College, and Hofstra University. Witkoff acquired the Long Island Marriott in 2014 through a distressed note purchase, recapitalized the property, and is repositioning it, including a long-term real estate tax benefit. As part of the repositioning, the lobby and other public spaces, porte-cochere entryway and landscaping, HVAC systems, and windows are currently under comprehensive renovation. Excess land is being evaluated for possible future development.
