Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H 47.49 (1.00%)) today announced the opening of Hyatt Times Square New York, the seventh hotel to be added to the Hyatt-branded portfolio in Manhattan. The 487-room hotel stands 54 stories high, making it the tallest newly built, freestanding Hyatt hotel in the United States. This newest addition to Hyatt's portfolio is also the third Hyatt-branded hotel to open in Manhattan in 2013.
Hyatt Times Square welcomes its first guests just in time for the start of the holiday season and is a perfect option for holiday shoppers, Broadway show-goers and business travelers. Located on West 45th Street, the hotel is steps away from world-famous Times Square at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue. The hotel is within walking distance of Broadway theaters, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center and flagship Fifth Avenue shops.
"We are rolling out the red carpet, eager to welcome our first guests and future guests to come," said Richard Morgan, General Manager of Hyatt Times Square. "We have created a chic and modern urban retreat for city explorers in one of New York City's most famous and action-packed neighborhoods. We are especially delighted to share our local lore and favorite neighborhood spots so guests can enjoy Hyatt's authentic hospitality as well as enjoy an authentic New York experience."
The George Wong-designed guestrooms offer an intimate, apartment-like feel with stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor juxtaposes neutral, light-toned fabrics and warm woods with brilliantly colored, city-themed art pieces, including a pop-art lounge chair created by a local artist. With only 11 spacious rooms per floor, the hotel also features 49 suites with modern indulgences such as large bathrooms featuring deep soaking tubs adjacent to rain-head showers.
