Ultra-convenient Times Square high-rise with plenty of amenities and a buzzy urban vibe
This hotel is busy almost 24 hours a day, just like the city it live in. Every detail, from the accent walls of yellow, blue, and red, chosen to mimic the colors of the city’s subway lines, to the murals and photos of New York street scenes is designed to emphasis its urban setting. Almost everything is oversized—there are more than 1,300 rooms, while the fitness studio outstrips those in most hotels—but that makes sense for something in this location. Guest rooms are compact but have several thoughtful touches, including work desks and blackout shades for the windows, while the executive suites have pull-out sofas that can sleep two.
In the Area
Times Square, overflowing with tourists, chain restaurants, souvenir shops, and flashing neon lights, isn’t for everyone, but there’s no arguing with the fact that it’s convenient for exploring: all of Midtown is within walking distance, including the Empire State Building, Macy’s and Rockefeller Center. Broadway’s theaters are a stone’s throw away, and the 42nd Street subway station is just one block from the hotel.
