Night Hotel Times Square

It’s the Theater District, so we put on a show and raised the curtain on a performance that grabs guests from Act I. Night Times Square begins, like the best New York City tales do, with a big opening number. The lobby’s epic tropical fish tank, octopi-inspired chandeliers and pops of blue, pink and orange light playing over funky works of art are an immediate delight, even to travelers who think they’ve seen it all. The plot thickens in Maple, a mountain-lodge-meets-gonzo-lounge straight out of Hunter S. Thompson, where you can even sip his favorite drink.
