BROOKLYN, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - If it's Next Wave or Sweet Funk, Flea Market collectibles or elegant Japanese gardens, Brooklyn has something for everyone. And guests who stay at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge are steps away from it all. Located in Brooklyn Heights just over the Brooklyn Bridge, this hotel in downtown Brooklyn is the ideal place to stay to begin exploring some of the major attractions and cultural institutions that are just minutes away.

The holiday season is always a great time to visit New York City and Brooklyn shines with festivals and events. Our Brooklyn, NY luxury hotel's convenient location puts you within walking distance to The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), our country's oldest performing arts center for over 150 years, features the ever-popular cutting-edge New Wave Festival, now in its 29th season. From the pioneers of contemporary music and dance such as Kronos Quartet and choreographer Merce Cunningham, to Brecht/Weill's Threepenny Opera, BAM's Next Wave Festival delights audiences now through December 18, 2011.

Even in cold winter weather, there's plenty to do and see indoors, when staying at our hotel near Brooklyn Academy of Music. The famous Brooklyn Flea, a flea market featuring hundreds of top vendors of antiques, collectibles, jewelry and arts & crafts, takes things indoors to the Skylight One Hanson Place, where you can stroll amongst the interior of the former Williamsburg Savings Bank. Winter is the perfect time to visit museums at a leisurely pace, and the Brooklyn Museum has some of the finest collections in the world. Whether it's the Egyptian collection (said to be the largest in the world), a current exhibition on the Art of the American 1920s, or "Sweet Funk," an introspective of reinterpreted symbols and legacies that inform contemporary America, there is something for everyone.

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden truly shines in warmer months, but you can still enjoy everything indoors, from a 300-pound tropical orchid, to terrarium displays. Check out their calendar of events for special outings to local flower markets and other activities.

When you stay at our Brooklyn, NY hotel, you're steps away from all that's happening in the most interesting neighborhoods in the borough. This 666-room hotel is located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, within walking distance of beautiful brownstones and fun shopping in Cobble Hill's trendy boutiques. Our Cobble Hill hotel's location puts you close to many dining choices amongst the area's cool restaurants, bars and lounges.
