The Long Island Marriott has always been a smart choice for discerning travelers visiting Hofstra University. With major enhancements complete in 2017, and more to follow, it’s become an even better one. Our new Crop and Kettle restaurant and Greatroom Lobby offers a relaxed sort of sophistication, with natural light and wood textures creating a distinctly modern ambience. You’ll appreciate the thinking behind it, and the flexibility to blend work and play. The transformation of our guest rooms has also taken place, with many improvements for your comfort. Big things have been happening around here – including the reinvented Nassau Coliseum and Entertainment Center with an amazing slate of world-class events. You’ll love the changes. Because it’s not about upgrading our facility. It’s about improving your experience.
