Attracting the glitterati with its luxury accommodation and Time Square location, it’s been popular ever since and not just with humans!

Guest rooms are second to none in the city, effortlessly combining old world elegance with cutting edge amenities and stunning city views. There’s a fitness centre for the enthusiast or simply order a cocktail from the iconic Blue Bar, one of the most desirable meeting places in NYC and indulge in a bit of people watching instead.
