Housed in a Beaux Arts building on the corner of 54th and Broadway, the Ameritania’s lobby takes its cues from the riotous eye candy of its Times Square ’hood. Tufted patent leather panels meet abstract murals on the walls, giraffe and zebra print pillows punctuate lipstick red sofas and armchairs and a fire burns bright at the center of it all.
Bed and Bath
Upstairs, the 223 rooms are more soothing with sandy beige textured walls, against soft blues and silver with geometric lantern fixtures hanging above. Blackout curtains ensure a good night’s sleep in the low-slung beds, which are wrapped in crisp white linens and have black tufted headboards. All of the mod cons are here, too, such as iPod docking stations, flat-screen LG TVs and universal phone chargers and adapters. Bathrooms have rainfall showers with C.O. Bigelow toiletries in lavender and peppermint scent.
Before heading upstairs after an evening out, grab a libation fireside with friends in Twist Lounge, a low-key bar off the lobby known for its martinis. And if you’re looking to keep up with your workout regimen, there’s a 24-hour fitness center in the hotel.
In the Area
The Ameritania at Times Square is near legendary Carnegie Hall and a short stroll from some prime Midtown landmarks. Just five blocks north is the entrance to the 843 acres of Central Park, with its grassy knolls, picturesque bridges and gurgling fountains. Less than two blocks away, you’ll find more than 150,000 photographs, sculptures, drawings and prints at the Museum of Modern Art, not to mention its stellar French-American restaurant, The Modern. Other upscale fare in the vicinity is equally outstanding: Per Se, Jean-Georges and Marea are all within walking distance. And no stay in Midtown is complete without a shopping spree along Fifth and Madison avenues; go for retail therapy at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, and Fendi, to name a few.
How to Get There
Considering all the big brand names with big hotel buildings the Ameritania Could be considered almost a charming boutique hotel, with 12 floors with a mixture of a classical property in the outside and modern and beautiful rooms. And just 4 blocks from Times Square. Perfectly clean and all the friendly staff compromised to a very clean room and hotel. The exact distance to be calm and secure for walking after the district theater shows and near from all the good restaurants and stores without the noise. The only thing missing is David Letterman in next Ed Sullivan Theather!!!!
Finally caught Hamilton in NY and wanted a place close by but also near the park. Great location to get to both. Lobby always had security. Staff friendly and accessible. First night it was a tad noisy but hey it's NY. Hotel supplies ear plugs!
I have stayed here 6-10 times a year for the last 4 plus years. The hotel is clean and well located. it is definitely in need of some sprucing up, and some maintenance $$. Don't get me wrong, it is perfectly fine, I stay for a week when i come and the rooms are clean and the bed comfy, its the thing hotels always face - furniture is getting dated, maintenance budget going with a patch instead of replace - small stuff -- a scratched up corner here, a worn headboard- nothing that affects my comfort. The main reason I return is that the staff have always made sure that I have a fantastic stay. If I need anything, they get it or help me find it! Not happy with room - let me see if I can find another! and with all the faces in and out they know my name when I come in. Like family. In particular on my last trip i wanted to call out Christy and Majid for being so welcoming and making sure I had a room I liked, a fridge to put my cold drinks in for the week and personally checking on me throughout my stay. I hope management knows that these fine folks are why travelers like me keep coming back! thanks so much. See ya soon.
The hotel was affordable and clean, and the reception staff, particularly Jeff, were exceedingly friendly and accommodating. When I first arrived at the hotel, Jeff greeted me very warmly and spent a lot of time showing me a map of walking destinations around Manhattan! He also set me up with transportation back to the airport for my last day. Jeff was the most notable part of my hotel experience. He made me feel very comfortable and taken care of.
We just completed our second stay at Ameritania and it was as good as the first. Checking in, the staff doesn't have that stuffy NYC vibe that we got from other NYC hotels and they are very friendly and helpful and eager to make your stay a great one. It's the city so the rooms are going to be a little smaller than elsewhere but it was fine. Within walking distance to a ton of food options and a 5 minute walk to Times Square, 10 minute walk to Central Park and Rockefeller Center. Will definitely stay again!
