The Times Square EDITION will soft launch next week ahead of an official launch on 12 March 2019.

Located at 701 Seventh Avenue on the corner of 47th Street, Times Square EDITION features 452 guest rooms with four levels of public space including a 1,500-square-metre performance venue, a 580-square-metre studio, state-of-the-art fitness centre and a lobby lounge at check-in level.

The hotel also boasts distinctive food and beverage outlets including a signature restaurant leading out onto a 1,770-square-metre beer garden and event deck overlooking Times Square, and an all-day dining venue also featuring terraces with views of Times Square.

Ian Schrager, in partnership with Marriott International, introduces a new order with the first chic and sophisticated luxury hotel and the first Michelin-starred chef ever to grace the neighbourhood, along with the creation of a new form of cabaret theatre and a complete reinvention of billboard art.

The hotel and all of its unique offerings seek to preserve the essence of the area during its Golden Age when it was the microcosm of the best New York City had to offer.

“The Times Square EDITION is an entirely new lens on Times Square. From an aerie above the hubbub below, you can engage, observe or withdraw. The hotel is an oasis of sophistication brought to you through the insight of the incomparable Ian Schrager, my friend and partner. There is simply nothing like it.”
Arne Sorenson, President and CEO, Marriott International

The first Michelin-starred chef ever in Times Square, John Fraser, is spearheading the food and beverage at the hotel to create a cacophony of dining experiences. The fine dining restaurant, named 701 West, is a gastronomic gem in a jewel box-like setting that is an explosion of colour. The menu features the best local ingredients and inventive preparations.

The Terrace Restaurant and Outdoor Gardens is an original take on a four-meal, 18-hours-a-day restaurant inspired by traditional French brasseries and American chophouses, but taken in a completely new direction by Fraser. The Lobby Bar will feature the next generation of bar food, moving beyond nuts and finger food and answering to people’s desire for great food in a bar setting.

The entrance to the Terrace restaurant will host the debut exhibit of curated, candid portrayals of “the real New York City”, the one not seen by visitors, capturing energetic, gritty and poetic street and neighbourhood scenes by photographers Helen Levitt, Elliott Erwitt, Bruce Davidson, Ruth Orkin, Arthur Leipzig and Cornell Capa, to name a few. The following exhibit will shift to more current street scenes, illustrating the culture and diversity that pervades the city today. The space will continue to house rotating photography and art exhibits by various well-known photographers and artists.
