Times Square, New York City
The Times Square EDITION
Manhattan's newest luxury destination
What it is
A new, calming 452-room respite in the heart of the universe, with a Michelin-starred chef spearheading the restaurants.
What it isn't
Light and airy in the common spaces. Yabu Pushelberg pushed the architectural envelope here; note the absinthe green velvet-swathed 701West and living walls in the moody Terrace restaurants. The result? A club kid cool vibe that’s pure New York.
What we think
New Yorkers would give up almost anything for what The Edition’s guest rooms have in spades: namely, floor-to-ceiling windows, stone-lined bathrooms with rainforest showers, Bluetooth speakers, and—yes—twice daily housekeeping service (not to mention cloud-like down comforters to retreat to in your robe and slippers after a mini bar binge). And even if you never leave the grounds, you’ll feel the trip was worth it, thanks to the spate of urbanite-ready amenities, such as a 24-hour gym with an outdoor wellness deck, loaner iPads and laptops, and 24-hour room service.
You're here because
You have always had a particularly fierce loathing for Times Square, and Yabu Pushelberg made it a resurgent destination.
Proof a restaurant is good: it has a heart-stopping cocktail menu. Proof a restaurant is great: it also has a cheese & calvados menu (because, why not?). “Divine” is a word you use multiple times at 701West, especially when you taste the black truffle tagliatelle with braised escarole, and the dessert of buckwheat puff pastry with vanilla-parsnip cream and salted caramel. And then the champagne trolley arrives, and you decide to stay forever.
