Speaking for the hotel, Brian McGuinness, senior vice president, specialty select brands for Starwood Hotels said, "we are thrilled to bring the Element brand to Times Square, our first New York City property. Our guests will be able to recharge and be at their best during their stay in New York City, while enjoying easy access to the businesses and attractions in the heart of Manhattan."
Atop the hotel, a rooftop terrace offers guests beautiful views of the Empire State Building, Hudson River and Midtown section of Manhattan, reports Travel Daily News.
