Video: W's Anthony Ingham talks Times Square


In December, the W New York – Times Square officially opened its newly renovated Living Room—the brand's take on a traditional lobby. Hotel Management spoke with Anthony Ingham, the global brand leader for W Hotels at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, to get his take on the importance of the Living Room, the W Hotel's role in Times Square and the brand's place in New York City.


In addition, a short film written and directed by Tony-winning actor Alan Cumming celebrated the new space, and raised both funds and awareness for pet charity, Broadway Barks. The film was styled by Tony-winning costume designer William Ivey Long and stars some notable dogs from Instagram, including PS.NY, Ella Bean the Dog, Chloe the Mini Frenchie and Chloe Kardoggian.
