All Seven IHG Brands Now Present in Manhattan

ATLANTA  — IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) announced today that a new 310-room Staybridge Suites will open in early April in the center of Manhattan.  Designed to be a place where guests can feel more at home while traveling, the Staybridge Suites Times Square - New York City creates a unique hotel experience, blending sleek style and comfortable design with exceptionally warm hospitality.  Whether guests are visiting the city for a night or an extended period of time, they will be sure to enjoy all the complimentary amenities and services that Staybridge Suites provides. 

“We’re very excited to bring Staybridge Suites to New York City,” said Robert Radomski, vice president, Global Brand Management, Extended-Stay Brands, IHG. “Establishing the brand’s presence in one of the world’s most well-traveled markets reflects the growing demand from both developers and guests for this upscale extended-stay brand.”

The Staybridge Suites Times Square is within walking distance to the Jacob Javits Convention Center, Times Square, Broadway Theater District, Fashion District, Madison Square Garden, Central Park and a number of Fortune 500 companies.  It is located at 
340 West 40th Street.

“Our hotel provides an upscale and comfortable atmosphere where guests can relax and unwind after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan,” said KK Mehta, owner, Mehta Family, LLC. “We offer the best of home and hotel, with complimentary extended-stay amenities and features that set us apart from other hotels in the area.” 

Designed less like a traditional hotel and more like studio apartments, each of the 310 studios in this 32-floor hotel is smartly decorated in vibrant hues and rich wood furnishings with touches such as white leather chairs and custom photography.  Each suite features Serta Perfect Sleeper® pillow top mattresses wrapped in 300 thread count luxury linen; a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, cookware and place settings; 37’’ LG® flat screen televisions;  generous work space with desk-level charging stations; wireless and hard wired Internet access; speaker phones; iHome docking alarm clocks; motion sensor thermostats and much more. 

The Staybridge Suites offers exceptional guest amenities not commonly found in New York City area hotels, including a deluxe complimentary daily breakfast buffet featuring Wolfgang Puck coffee; complimentary guest laundry and workout facilities with Cybex equipment; a complimentary 24-hour business services center; a guest library with books and games; and BridgeMart®, the hotel’s 24-hour convenience store stocked with snacks, sundries, beverages and easy-to-prepare meals.  Instead of eating every meal at a restaurant, guests can request grocery shopping and delivery through the concierge. 

Guests are invited to get comfortable in the hotel’s Great Room for evening “Sundowner” receptions three days a week for complimentary refreshments, light appetizers and conversation.  Guests at Staybridge Suites Times Square can get Internet connectivity throughout the hotel with complimentary “Wireless Anywhere.” 

The Staybridge Suites Times Square - New York City is owned by Mehta Family, LLC, and managed by NY Hotel Management, under a license agreement with a company in the InterContinental Hotels Group.
