The women, identified as the baby boy’s step-sister and her fiancee from Delaware, were released without charges after police were called to the hotel located at 7th Avenue and West 33rd Street.
Hotel staff called 911 around 1 a.m. after the two women were seen intoxicated and wandering around with the child.
The women, ages 24 and 26, were reportedly trying to book a room for the night when hotel staff noticed the baby was not moving.
Police arrived at the Manhattan hotel to find the child unresponsive and immediately brought the baby to NYU Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
