Part of a nearly 2000‑room addition across multiple Hilton brands, Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square expands the brand essence of flexible design and local vibe with its second lifestyle hotel in the epicenter of New York City.
NEW YORK – In a new era of Hilton growth in one of the world’s most iconic destinations, Hilton has opened Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square, the second hotel from the Motto by Hilton brand in New York City. The 400-room tower is in the heart of Manhattan’s famed Times Square neighborhood, offering an immersive and authentic affair under the lights of Broadway.
“We are thrilled to welcome guests to Motto by Hilton Times Square, a landmark moment for the brand and an ideal addition to Hilton’s presence in New York City,” said Theodora De Souza, brand leader, Motto by Hilton. “This new hotel exemplifies the Motto brand essence – it is centrally located in one of the city’s most famed neighborhoods and incorporates flexible and modern design elements, encouraging guests to connect and reflect on the cityscape, moments from the best of Broadway, museums, dining and culture.”
Reimagining the large-scale footprint of a New York City hotel, Motto New York City Times Square will entice guests looking for connection and efficiency. Guest rooms designed with an intentional footprint feature soft neutral textures offering a cozy escape, while dynamic storage and technology features synthesize their stay. The property’s signature restaurant The Alderman will offer an elegant take on the classic New York City diner with American food and craft cocktails inspired by the beginning of the last century, updated to have a modern flair.
The ideal New York City adventure hub, Motto New York City Times Square is set inside the bustling city center, just above 47th Street. The hotel is steps away from 41 Broadway theaters, immersive spectacles, unique outdoor attractions and distinct dining venues, while also being just minutes from celebrated uptown museums such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA and The Guggenheim, in addition to Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center.
With the debut of Motto New York City Times Square, alongside the recent and upcoming openings of Tempo by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Hampton by Hilton in Times Square this summer, Hilton will add nearly 2,000 rooms to its portfolio in this iconic destination.
“Times Square is a neighborhood and destination all its own and the entire Motto by Hilton Times Square team is excited to welcome guests and locals to experience all this property and our neighborhood has to offer,” said Peter McNamee, general manager, Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square. “Combining unmatched hospitality, elevated design and a premiere location, Motto Times Square is sure to offer the most authentic taste of New York City.”
A Minimal Nod to The Past, for Future Travelers
Inspired by combining 1920s New York City style and design with today’s modern lines and architectural elements, a sophisticated palette of warm tones will offer guests a tranquil respite from the excitement of the neighborhood, while still granting unparalleled access to the bright lights and world-renowned attractions. The connection to past and present is expressed throughout, with headboards mimicking the city skyline with curves and corners that reflect the architectural evolution of the city, in a neutral and calming collection of textures.
Art selected by contemporary artists reinvents the lines and forms of 1920s fashion in a minimal and sophisticated way for the modern era of the 2020s. Art focused on shape scale replaces the technicolor displays outside, with softer refined details. Communal spaces marry the rhythm of the archways and corners with an intentional flow of welcoming spaces from The Commons to the arched lobby bar and into the on-property restaurant.
Flexible Guest Rooms with Smart Room Technology
Motto New York City Times Square will offer cleverly compact rooms with a soft, modern design that feature unobstructed views of the city and are outfitted with everything guests need for an enjoyable and restful night’s sleep, including top-notch mattresses and sound-absorbing surroundings. The hotel features its signature sets of connecting rooms, providing guests the ability to book up to six unique adjoining rooms together. Motto by Hilton was the pioneer of Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton technology, so guests can not only take advantage of the brand’s unique room configurations, but also simplify coordinating travel for larger friend and family groups.
Other room details include:
- Cleverly compact rooms are designed to provide what guests value most in a more efficient footprint, while in-room tech allows guests to personalize their space by adjusting the temperature and lighting by mobile device
