Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, New York, USA
★ ★ ★
Part of the massive Starwood chain and one of Sheraton’s flagship properties. This conference and business traveller orientated option has 1,781 rooms over 50 floors and always appears busy and well maintained. This sleek building almost shimmers in the sunlight and consists of two sections, one of which is the Sheraton Towers.
The massive lobby area is like a destination in itself and there are separate check-in facilities for premium guests. The restaurant and bar facilities are comfortable and business like although a more relaxed ambience is portrayed at weekends.
Business travellers from across the world and more tourists at weekend, many of whom are simply impressed by the sheer size of the property.
Midway between Times Square and Central Park on a wide street and surrounded by other smaller business orientated properties. Plenty of shops, restaurants and coffee outlets all around as well as a couple of Irish bars. Buses stop outside the building and the 7th Avenue subway station is also immediately outside.
