Hilton opened the new DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel New York Times Square West, located in the heart of Manhattan.
The newly built high-rise hotel is steps from the Broadway theater district, The Jacob Javits Convention Center, dozens of shops and restaurants, the Empire State Building and many other New York attractions. The 37-story property has 612 rooms, each with theater district-inspired artwork and many offering views of the city or the Hudson River.
“Times Square is the heartbeat of New York City, offering travelers a convenient respite between their business meetings and a thrilling destination to enjoy the theater district, shopping and diverse cuisine options,” Dianna Vaughan, SVP and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said in a statement. “We’re delighted to now open this amazing Times Square location, welcoming guests with our signature, warm DoubleTree Cookie and delivering award-winning service throughout their stay.”
Views of the Manhattan skyline are on the menu at Lovage Rooftop & Indoor Lounge, which offers cocktails, light fare and nightly live music until 2 a.m. Dining – for breakfast, lunch and dinner – is available at Magnolia Restaurant, an American Bistro with menu items curated by executive chef Brian Pancir, a longtime chef for the New York Yankees and New York Giants. A rarity for a Manhattan hotel, outdoor seating is also available on the patio in front of and behind the hotel.
The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel and resorts operator that manages more than 20 U.S. properties in the Hilton portfolio.
“We’re thrilled to debut the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel New York Times Square West as the newest addition to Crescent’s NYC portfolio,” Michael George, CEO of Crescent Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement. “Crescent’s extensive experience in New York City, along with our history of exceptional service as a major Hilton manager will maximize the potential of this great hotel.
