Times Square is one of the most iconic locations in the United States, or even the world. Home to the Broadway Theater District and countless shopping, dining, and nightlife options, it is a popular tourist destination. Add the central Midtown location, and it is popular among business travelers as well.

Despite all that, Times Square is known more for its bustling energy and eye-popping signs than its places to stay. There was a gap in the area’s hotel set which could be filled—creating a new luxury offering that is sophisticated enough for business travelers, yet comfortable enough to feel like home for leisure travelers. A gap perfectly suited for the EDITION brand’s style of modern luxury.

WITKOF did just that. The stylish rooms and communal spaces of the Times Square EDITION have a comfortable and luxurious feel while also meeting the needs of business travelers with highly functional, technologically advanced work environments.

At the same time, WITKOF set out to create a new way to engage with Times Square. Most experience it outside among the chaos, from the street level looking up. Or, they are isolated inside buildings, looking down at the freneticism. But now, there is another option: outdoor spaces were built into the hotel, letting guests take in the sites outside, immersed in the incredible energy yet well out of the fray.

The EDITION gives travelers new highs to expect from stays in Times Square.
