So, you finally have an opportunity to take that long-awaited trip to New York City and you plan on staying in Times Square. That's great, but you have a lot of options available to you. Just because you narrowed it down to Times Square certainly doesn't mean that you only have one or two options on your list. Remember, this is New York City. As such, you have literally dozens of options at your disposal. Depending on your personal preferences, you might want something extravagant or something that's toned down a little. Maybe you're looking for luxury or maybe you just want the basics done right. Whatever your personal tastes might be, you can find something that will work well for you out of these five top choices, listed below.
Sanctuary Hotel New York
Just as you might expect with any hotel located in Times Square, this is an impressive building that will get your attention the minute you lay eyes on it. It's a very modern, almost hip looking location that's even more impressive on the inside than it's exterior. If you're looking for a place with clean rooms and good service, complete with the standard items you would expect to find in the center of Manhattan, you can't go wrong here. Of course, they also offer basics like free Wi-Fi and even a complimentary breakfast each morning. If you really want to kick back and relax, visit the lounge located on the rooftop.
Room Mate Grace Hotel
This is easily one of the most modern locations in any city, even New York. The rooms themselves are different from just about anything else you'll find, incorporating a futuristic minimalist design that makes you feel more like you're on a starship than in a hotel. Of course, free Wi-Fi is included with the deal. This location also gives you the chance to relax. If you really want to do things differently, there's an indoor pool that has a bar where you can merely swim right up to it and order your drinks.
DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel New York City
If you need to stay there for more than a couple of nights, you might choose this location. It's not quite as fancy as the other hotels on this list, but it does have everything you need if you need to enjoy an extended stay. The rooms are definitely not sparse, and they're always clean. They even feature a kitchenette so you can do some light cooking on your own. If you prefer, there's a great restaurant on site and then you can work off all of those extra pounds at the gym.
Hyatt Centric Times Square New York
This one seems to have it all. It's located in a high-rise right in the heart of Times Square. They have bustling bistro, a rooftop bar that's virtually second to none, and an overall hipster design that's intended to attract millennials, so if you fall into this category, you should feel right at home throughout your entire stay here.
Hilton Garden Inn Times Square/New York Central
The thing that you'll probably notice right off the bat here is that you are indeed right in the middle of Times Square. Thanks to the high-rise building, you also have a great view of virtually all of Manhattan. These rooms are smaller than a lot of the other locations here, but somehow they have a cozy or feel to them without giving up their modern approach. This place also has a great bar that's only rivaled by the breakfast provided by the facility and as always, you can get free Wi-Fi when you stay here.
Any of these choices will allow you to have a great experience. When you're in Manhattan, all you have to do is decide the types of amenities you want most and then choose your hotel based on that information. There are plenty of choices available to you, the places listed here are five of the best. There's no doubt that you'll be happy with the one you choose.
