NEWARK — Marriott International has opened a 150-room Courtyard property near Newark's Prudential Center, the first new hotel in the city's downtown in four decades. Along with its location near the Prudential Center, which hosts about 200 sporting, concert and other events annually, the property is also a few blocks from Newark Penn Station. Tucker Development Corp., the owner and project developer, has also recently secured a lease with Joe's Crab Shack to anchor part of the ground-floor retail space. The restaurant will occupy 5,138 square feet of the 14,000 square feet of retail.
