4 star hotel
Area: Theater District - Times Square
0.55 mi from Central Park Zoo
Best Rooms: The only way to guarantee a great view is to book a Times Square View room or suite. Concierge level rooms facing 7th Ave. or 55th St., on floors 18 - 25, offer nice city views as well.
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by taller buildings, so you'll have limited city views of either 6th Ave. or West 54th St., from any floor. Request a room ending in *29 above floor 10 (e.g. 1129, 1529) for a nice city view.
