"Lavish" truly is the word for this historic 44th Street icon spot. Dressed in rich woods, leathers and velvets, the hotel is hallmarked by a floor-to-ceiling bronze fireplace and design accents of a bygone era throughout. After revelling in the New York quintessence, grab dinner at Forty Four or Ozoku Sushi and Sashimi Bar, and keep in mind that no night at the Royalton is complete without a nightcap at Bar 44.

You can’t get much closer to Times Square than the five-star Knickerbocker, with its stately, exaggerated exterior standing proudly at the intersection of 42nd Street and Broadway—the heart of the action, if you will. The storied building, created in 1906 by John Jacob Astor, once played home to Rockefellers and Fitzgeralds and is said to have been the birthplace of the martini.

Catering primarily to budget-conscious millennials, the Moxy Times Square is the 15th global location of Marriott International’s massively popular design-oriented brand. The rooms are intentionally cosy but include grade-A amenities like HD TVs, rain showers and high-thread-count bedding. Here, you’ll be trading room service and bellhops for pocket-friendly rates, Instagram-worthy decor and communal spaces outfitted with brick walls, leather couches and artwork. Naturally, there are also five Tao-group–operated restaurants and bars that include a rooftop lounge and an egg sandwich shop. That’s no yolk.

This darling luxury oasis is just close enough to Times Square to be part of the action but far enough away to maintain the calm, cool and collected atmosphere for which the Langham name is known and revered. It’s just as chic as its London counterpart, and each room has a marble bathroom and floor-to-ceiling windows - perfect for taking the city in fully. Plus, if you get peckish, don’t miss out on chef Michael White’s Ai Fiori.

Design, luxury living and the art of hospitality are fused within the Time New York hotel in an ode to time and space as we know it.

If you're after a stay infused with elegance, The Pearl has a certain traditional hotel appeal with sophisticated, larger-than-average rooms and top-tier amenities. A family-friendly favourite, the hotel offers a comfortable, quiet escape from the hustle and bustle nearby. Included in a stay are gym facilities (pro-tip: check out the outdoor patio), custom desks for catching up on work and Philosophy bath products. Steps away from Central Park and Rockefeller Center, the hotel also has the advantage of being smack in the middle of Broadway’s Theater District—it’s next door to the Eugene O’Neill Theater.
