A hotel in the heart of it all, blocks from Times Square, the Museum of Modern Art and Rockefeller Center
Belvedere Hotel could deck itself out into something so bright and bold
that you’d never want to leave, but then you’d miss out on the landmark
that you came for. Sure, this hotel gives you its own dose of character,
offering not only a café, but a Brazilian churrascaria. Still, with its
flashing lights and vivid videos, Times Square eclipses pretty much
everywhere else on Earth in personality, and that’s why this property –
right around the corner and down the street from the iconic plaza –
otherwise keeps it simple and straightforward.
Wake up in the
most energetic neighborhood of the city that never sleeps, and stroll
five minutes over to the main drag itself, where the skyscraper-side
screens never stop cycling through ads in high-definition technicolor.
Take coffee and a pastry up to the electric-red steps rising high above
the bustling pedestrians, and hop back down to score Broadway tickets at
the TKTS booth. Hit any of the 10 nearby subway lines to travel almost
anywhere you want in the city, but make sure to head back by 11:57pm.
That’s when the billboards all change to modern art for exactly three
minutes, for the nightly Midnight Moment display.
There are 352 rooms at Belvedere Hotel, and each is
designed to serve as a cozy base between your sightseeing outings. Your
room will have marble floors, granite bathrooms and luxe bathrobes; top
it off with a queen bed in plush bedding, and you can count on a great
night’s sleep – if the city’s exhilarating energy doesn’t keep you
you’re hungry and want to stay in the hotel, you can choose between
Belvedere Café and Churrascaria Plataforma. The first serves breakfast –
you can choose between a continental or American one – while the second
specializes in rodizio-style Brazilian meats, paired with your choice
of salad-bar fare or wine.
As a guest at
Belvedere Hotel, you’re just up the street and around the corner from
Times Square, as well as legendary Broadway theaters. Tack on another
few blocks, and you’re at the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center
or Madison Square Garden, and should you want to hit another neck of the
woods entirely, you’re within six blocks of 10 subway lines that can
take you to almost every Manhattan neighborhood, and beyond.
