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
Great location and within walking distance to all the action yet tucked away and quiet!
Jeff was especially helpful and made sure we were assured to have a great stay in NYC. He went above and beyond! Highly recommend this hotel.
From when we first arrived the staff greeted us courteously and were very welcoming. Both concierge and reception were helpful and friendly. The location was perfect. I would recommend this hotel.
The room (916) was a bit tired, back of bathroom door peeling, aircon unit very noisy, bed head rests worn. However the room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. I would recommend the hotel to others.
Room was tiny and noisy though the bed was very comfortable. The extra charge per night of US$20 + tax is over the top. Apparantly for phone, gym, water and coffee which most hotels include in tariff. And when you consider no coffee in room and only available between 630am and 730am that's a hard one to justify. Who gets up that early in NYC!!
I booked this hotel on the understanding that as a wheelchair user this was fully accessible. Unfortunately this was not the case and access was via a portable ramp which was not particularly safe but moreso was undignified entering and leaving hotel by holding up passers-by. All that being said the front of house staff were extremely helpful and special mention to Mourad for his assistance.
Stayed here for 3 nights with my daughter in law to be - from start to finish the customer service in this hotel is second to none - the reception staff are friendly and efficient - the door staff are first class never encountered better in nyc!
The room was huge, clean and very comfortable - I would not hesitate to stay here again.
