The InterContinental New York Times Square is set to open on July 12. Located at 44th and 8th Avenue, the new luxury hotel lies at the heart of the Times Square and Broadway districts. Designed by the global architecture firm, Gensler, the 36-story white glass building blends art deco style with contemporary and natural inspirations.
Inside, the 578 rooms and 29 suites have been designed to evoke the feeling of a chic Manhattan residence, all offering breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline, the Broadway district and the Hudson River. The hotel will feature street-level retail shops and the French-inspired restaurant Ça Va, headed by New York chef Todd English. 10,000 square feet of meeting space and a 24-hour business center are available for conferences. The hotel has introduced a grand opening offer of 25% off rates for stays between July 12 and September 8, 2010. Bookings must be made by June 15 at www.interconny.com.
With nature as inspiration, the elegant rooms and suites all feature oversized bathrooms with walk-in rain showers, and midnight blue mosaic tile made to resemble sparkling water. Complete with the latest technology, every room has a workstation, 42-inch HDTV, and wired and wireless Internet options. The impressive 2,700 square foot Presidential Suite boasts three bedrooms and a two-story living room with fireplace, and stunning panoramic views. A grand staircase rises to the second floor master bedroom with its own fireplace and bath and features a free standing tub and sliding glass doors that open to spectacular views of New York City.
