IHG began checking guests into the 607-room InterContinental New York Times Square early this week. Rising 36 stories above the New York skyline, the property is the largest new-build hotel to open in Manhattan since 2002 and will be the largest hotel in New York to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, providing guests with a full-service, luxury hotel experience that is also environmentally responsible.
The hotel's Grand Opening Ceremonies will be held on July 29. Located on 44th Street just west of Times Square, the hotel is in the Broadway Theatre district. Featuring panoramic views of Manhattan from virtually every guestroom, the new InterContinental New York Times Square is wrapped with floor-to-ceiling windows, and guestrooms average 350 square feet in size and include an oversized, spa-inspired bathroom complete with walk-in rain showers. The hotel boasts 25 Panoramic Avenue Suites with views of the city that allow guests to sightsee without moving their feet. Additionally, the hotel's three-bedroom, 2,700-square-foot, bi-level Penthouse Suite showcases dramatic panoramic views of Times Square, Broadway, the New York City skyline and the Hudson River.
The property also boasts 10 meeting rooms totaling 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, inclusive of a 4,000-square-foot ballroom. Additionally, there are 25 flexible suites available that can be utilized as event space. The InterContinental New York Times Square will showcase Celebrity Chef Todd English's newest restaurant concept, Ca Va. The French bistro-inspired restaurant opening later this month will serve traditional brasserie fare as well as contemporary interpretations of the classics. Additional hotel amenities include a Concierge Lounge; 24-hour business and fitness centers; wired and wireless Internet in guestrooms and public areas; 42-inch HDTV flat-panel televisions and touch-screen computers in all guestrooms; and a courtyard viewing garden in the lobby complete with a reflecting pool and sculptures.
