New York’s hustle and bustle seems to revolve around activities and venues that are within close proximity to Times Square, the legendary hot spot in the Big Apple – which makes reserving a New York hotel room in Times Square the best way to spend your time in New York. You may recognize Times Square from ABC’s Good Morning America – which films in Times Square – and it is in Times Square that MTV Studios is located, as well as where The Late Show with David Letterman has taped for well over a decade now. The theater district in New York begins in Times Square, and there are dozens of comedy clubs (like the infamous Caroline’s) and restaurants in the Square (like Carmine’s, Mars 2112, and the Jekyll and Hyde Club) – but the Times Square hotels really steal the show.
There are dozens of hotels located in and around Times Square. One of the most popular is the Ameritania Hotel, located in midtown Manhattan, just a few yards away from the Late Show with David Letterman, the Ed Sullivan Theater, Central Park, the Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall. Richly appointed guests rooms are well-equipped with every amenity that will make your stay in this New York hotel one for the memory books. You’ll also find a coffee shop, lounge, and health club on the site, and everything that the Ameritania offers is delivered with impeccable service.
The Amsterdam Court Hotel is located in the theater district four blocks away from Times Square. Staying at the Amsterdam gives you subway access to other parts of the city just around the corner, which means that any area of New York that you want to explore is just moments away. Decorated in Nouveau Art with gloriously appointed furnishings, guests of the Amsterdam are a unique mix of leisure and business travelers who enjoy the many amenities that are offered at this New York hotel, as well as the friendly and helpful staff.
The Casablanca Hotel takes its inspiration from the movie of the same name, and features forty-eight lavishly appointed guest suites. It is here that you’ll find Rick’s Café which offers entertainment from daylight to well after dark, and an outdoor courtyard (a rarity among New York hotels) provides the perfect back drop for quiet evenings reminiscent to those spent by Humphrey Bogart in the original Casablanca movie. If you appreciate attention to detail, sophisticated surroundings and personal attentiveness from staff, you are in for a true delight at the Casablanca.
Another great choice for staying in Times Square is the Hilton Garden Inn, which is located within walking distance (three blocks) of Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue and Broadway. You’ll find spacious comforts within the Hilton’s guests rooms, and extra conveniences like a mini-refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, alongside high speed Internet for connecting while away on your trip. The Hilton also has its own French restaurant that is open around the clock, everyday of the week, along with a gift shop, fitness center, convenience store and concierge desk with ATM outlet.
Another great hotel located in this area is the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers, which is located centrally on Times Square in order to give you the best access to everything that New York has to offer. Walk into the Sheraton Times Square and you’ll get a glimpse of the finery which begins in the lobby, which is done in Italian marble and leather, and continues into the guest suites and rooms that have been recently renovated. The Sheraton also offer a huge fifty foot indoor pool that is located just across the street at its sister hotel, the Sheraton Manhattan – which is a rare find in New York (most New York hotels do not have pools, due to the limited space in the city).
These are just a few of the New York hotels that you will find in the Times Square area – there are dozens more in every price range from economy to ultra luxury.
