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
Family trip to NYC. Great location 1 block from Times Square. Right next to subway station. Our room had a great view of 8th avenue, but did have traffic noise even on the 26th floor. Hotel was very nice and I would definitely stay there again.
IC Times Square excellent location for Theater goers and Hells Kitchen foodie crowd. Busy hotel, yet no wait at elevators. The breakfast buffet is varied and includes thick bacon, delicious vegetable Asian Dumplings and luscioua fresh berries and melon. Excellent choice.
Very impressed, everyone very welcoming. Location was great, so close to Times Square, but managed to be quiet enough at night for a sound sleep. Got rooms service, delicious and fast: A little expensive with the tray charge, etc, but then again, New York is just expensive. Would definitely recommend and come back.
The hotel is in a great location in New York, with ready access to Broadway and the Theater District. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The bellmen are always ready to help with luggage or getting a cab. The staff at the Ambassador Check In desk are also very friendly and helpful. We have stayed at this hotel many times and always enjoy our stays!
The location of the hotel is super convenient if you are wishing to explore attractions in the midtown Manhattan area. It is just a couple of blocks away from Times Square. Rooms of the hotel were pretty clean and customer service was on point. Will definitely be staying again in this hotel next time.
