The Time New York Hotel

Midtown Manhattan’s Time New York Hotel is a welcome break from the hurried pace of this bustling neighborhood. Tucked into a modest foyer with just a doorman and elevator, guests are whisked up to a fashionable reception area inspired by contemporary art, music, and technology. The new, sophisticated look is part of a $20 million renovation by the famed New York architecture and design firm, The Rockwell Group. As the flagship property of the Debut Hotel Group, the designers take into account guests needs for both work and play, with communal worktables and cozy nooks for socializing. A retractable fabric “wall” separates LeGrand Lounge from the lobby, opened at night, the venue is expansive and inviting. Street level Serafina restaurant offers northern Italian-inspired dishes with a modern twist.

Guest rooms have a tailored look with leather-upholstered beds, glass enclosed wardrobes, and a crinkled paper texture wallpaper. Business meetings can be arranged in the state of the state-of-the-art audiovisual boardroom, and the Penthouse Glass Pavilion, with Time Square views, is perfect for a glamorous private celebration. The mid-town location is unbeatable whether you’re staying in New York for a theater getaway, a shopping escapade, or a museum jaunt, the best of Manhattan is only a stones throw away.
