NYC Welcomes Marmara

May 17, 2014
Daily / Feature

Marmara Collection is coming to the Big Apple with the opening of its flagship property, Marmara Park Avenue, in August. Located on 32nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenues, the property includes custom-designed and individually produced items from artisans across New York City’s five boroughs. Local artist/designer Joe Ginsberg created an environment where guests feel like they’re coming home. In addition to the bespoke pieces found throughout the hotel, other items were handpicked from design-forward purveyors; nothing was sourced from hotel industry suppliers.

A hallmark of the property will be its service, a combination of European gentility and discreet New York efficiency. In-room iPad Airs will connect to a 24/7 virtual concierge. The 128 guestrooms will be a mix of suites, guestrooms and penthouse suites, featuring apartment-style configurations and fully equipped kitchens. Soaring ceilings allow for plenty of natural light, and 40 rooms offer private terraces.

Nearly 1,4000 square feet of event space can be divided into two rooms or rented as one spacious venue. The area is outfitted with state-of-the-art technology. The Marmara Park Avenue’s Wellness Center includes a lap pool, cleansing steam bath and a comprehensive fitness center.

The Marmara Collection, founded in 1978 in Istanbul, boasts a collection of seven properties throughout Turkey.

Tropical Hot Spot

CONSIDERING THAT JUST A LITTLE more than a century ago — 1910, to be exact — Miami’s population was only about 5,400 people, it’s easy to see why this South Florida hot spot has long been considered a boomtown. And the evolution continues to impress as the city gears up to welcome an array of new services, amenities and experiences.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
