InterContinental Hotels: New York
Our World | On 01, Oct 2010
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts latest property in New York is their impressive Times Square property.
Situated on 44th Street just west of Times Square, the new-build hotel is a short stroll to the Broadway Theatre district and Fifth Avenue shopping making it an ideal location to explore the city. With expansive views of Manhattan from virtually every guestroom, the new InterContinental New York Times Square delivers an insider’s view of the city by providing a contemporary, vibrant yet intimate experience.
Wrapped with floor-to-ceiling windows, the 36-story Times Square hotel has 547 guestrooms each averaging 350 square feet, including an oversized bathroom complete with walk-in rain showers. The hotel boasts 29 corner suites with expansive views of the city that allow guests to sightsee without moving their feet. In my opinion the hotel has been designed to maximise its location and gives every guest a great view of a world renowned skyline. Of course if you really wanted to splash out, there is always the hotel’s 2,700 square foot duplex Presidential Suite which showcases dramatic panoramic views of Times Square, Broadway, the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. Truly amazing offering from a single suite!
When it comes to meeting space the hotel offers a range of options. Firstly as one of the closest hotels to Javits Convention Center, this property is perfectly placed for a conference/ convention. Alternatively the Times Square property boasts 10 meeting rooms totalling 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, inclusive of a 4,000 square foot ballroom.
This hotel manages to combine classic New York Art Deco heritage with contemporary and natural inspiration, providing a refreshing sanctuary from the bustling streets of Manhattan. In my opinion this property is perfectly situated to host a business focused conference/ convention yet it is close enough to all the main highlights of the city to allow delegates the flexibility to explore, however busy their schedule. With Christmas, (dare I say it) just round the corner this Times Square property might even be well worth remembering as a great little treat for someone special!
