This soaring eco-conscious hotel in the heart of Times Square is perfect for visitors looking to catch a Broadway show. The 607 guestrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Manhattan skyline, plus work desks, flat-screen TVs and large bathrooms with rainfall showers and Agraria bath products. Room service is available 24 hours a day, and the food comes from celeb chef Todd English’s French brasserie Ça Va, which also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner — including a reasonably priced pre-theater prix-fixe — in a comfortable but stylish setting. There are also two green rooftops, one of which has a beehive that produces honey for the on-site restaurants.
In the Area
The concierge recommends starting the day with a walk to Central Park, where guests can explore the Central Park Zoo, the iconic Alice in Wonderland statue and Bethesda Fountain. Head to breakfast at Sarabeth’s, on Central Park South, for comfort fare like lemon and ricotta pancakes, then continue on to Fifth Avenue to shop at legendary New York spots like Tiffany & Co. and Bergdorf Goodman. In the evening take in a live jazz performance at the Stone Rose Lounge at the Time Warner Center, or see a ballet, opera or jazz show at Lincoln Center.
How to Get There
Stayed for 1 night. Central location handy for tourist attractions and theatre shows. Didn’t hear any noise. Bed was comfy. Room service food arrived quickly and wi fi worked fine. Note for tourists new to the area be careful when getting off at the airport as I got taxi from jfk airport fare should be around 70 dollars but was charged 240 dollars and don’t tell the driver that it’s your first time there as they hear a different accent then know aren’t local to area so put on prices.
Hotel is centrally located and walking distance to Times Square, Madison Square Garden and many other attractions. Rooms were very clean, bed comfortable and all staff we encountered were very friendly and courteous. Easy self parking ($42/night) directly across the street is very convenient. Didn't try any amenities as we were on the go, but this is a great hotel for a weekend in NYC.
We wanted to be near Time Square, so this was an excellent choice! Hotel was very clean, beautiful views from our room & the room was quiet. Breakfast buffet was excellent, & staff was friendly & helpful.
It’s New York so we knew were going to spend money. Booked a Skyline sweet for close to $700 a night. However, by the time you pay city & state tax adds another $150. Then they add a Destination charge that is a Hotel specific fee for another $30 a night. Essentially, whatever you think your room rate is, add close to another $200 per night. We booked directly through the hotel and they should have disclosed that.
Service by staff was impeccable, great location, and room service was very good though expensive. Rooms a little dated in my opinion for close to $1,000 a night.
Overall it was a good stay. They lack of disclosure on pricing is what reduced the stars to me.
We had a fantastic time in New York, hotel staff very friendly and courteous. A good location. Hotel very clean. Food was excellent if a tad expensive. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
