Park Ridge Celebrates Its New Look With the Mayor Terry McGuire

Park Ridge Marriott Completes Lobby Renovation and Hosts Mayor Terry McGuire for Ribbon-Cutting Celebration

PARK RIDGE, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- The Park Ridge Marriott recently concluded a lobby redesign -- including the addition of Brae's Lounge restaurant -- and Park Ridge Mayor Terry McGuire was on hand to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

According to Christine Devers, General Manager, the Bergen County, NJ hotel's lobby was completely renovated to reflect Marriott's "Great Room" style, which is perfect for socializing after a day of meetings or travel. "Marriott has found that today's travelers don't want to stay in their room all evening. This Great Room design reflects this new mentality and offers comfortable seating and complimentary Wi-Fi access so web surfing and email have never been easier."

The highlight of the new Great Room lobby is Brae's Lounge. Offering a variety of menu items along with state-of-the-art technology and comfortable spaces, Brae's Lounge is the ideal location to relax and socialize over fine food and drink. The menu has a wide variety of selections to appeal to most any appetite offering New Age American cuisine featuring sharable plates and trendy cocktails like our "Mojirita" -- part Mojito and part Margarita made with fresh picked herbs form our own garden or the refreshing Cucumber Gin Martini, perfect for a hot summer night.

Chef Daniel Ritacco has created a menu in Brae's Lounge with something for everyone. He is inspired by guests gathered at one of the lounge's communal tables sharing food. His most popular sharable appetizers include the Spicy Tuna with Wonton Crisps, Flat Bread Pizzas which range from the traditional Margherita to the inventive Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese, and the ever-popular Wings with choice of Spicy, Honey BBQ and Sriracha.

The Park Ridge Marriott is set within a tranquil urban oasis in Bergen County, making it one of the most romantic hotels in New Jersey. Visitors cross over a scenic bridge overlooking a natural stream with koi fish before arriving in the hotel's lush, tree-filled setting. The hotel's facilities include The Botanical Spa & Salon, indoor and outdoor pools, and the Park Ridge Marriott Health Club. The property also features 289 well-appointed guest rooms. For meetings and events, the property offers a total of 18,000 square feet of space and 19 meeting rooms, the largest being the 8,400-square-foot Grand Ballroom which can accommodate up to 1,350 people.
