NEW YORK, NY (October 25, 2016) – Construction of the new DoubleTree New York Times Square West, managed by Crescent Hotel & Resorts, is nearing completion and expected to open in December 2016. Crescent, based in Fairfax, Virginia is a nationally recognized operator of major hotels, resorts and conference centers throughout the United States and Canada.

The 37-floor, 612-room DoubleTree hotel is a completely new building, located on 40th Street between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue, in the South West corner of Times Square. Rooms will offer amazing views of Times Square, the Hudson River, the Freedom Tower, and the Empire State Building.

“The DoubleTree New York Times Square West is a great addition to Crescent’s NYC metropolitan portfolio” said Michael George, Chief Executive Office of Crescent Hotels & Resorts. “Crescent’s exceptional service as a major Hilton manager, combined with our extensive experience in New York City and powerful sales platform will maximize the potential of this great hotel.”

“Some of the features we are most excited about include our lobby level restaurant and our rooftop bar,” said Richard Hotter, General Manager for the hotel. “The lobby level restaurant and bar, named Magnolia Restaurant, is an American bistro that will offer both indoor and outdoor seating, with outdoor seating available on the patio in front of the hotel as well as behind the hotel – not something found often in Manhattan! And our rooftop bar, named Lovage Rooftop & Indoor Lounge, will actually be glass-enclosed so that guests can enjoy its unobstructed views year-round.”

Just steps from the Broadway Theater District, this New York Times Square hotel offers an enviable location near Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and other iconic attractions. And the Jacob Javits Center is a short walk – perfect when visiting for a convention.
