M&R Hotel Management today announced the opening of the 271-room Holiday Inn New York City – Times Square at 585 Eighth Ave., between 38th and 39th streets.
The new hotel is located three blocks from West 42nd Street with convenient access to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, New York Penn Station, the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Broadway theater district, world-class restaurants and shopping.
The Holiday Inn New York City – Times Square features king and queen rooms, 24-hour business and fitness centers, flight check-in kiosk, complimentary high-speed Internet access throughout the hotel and Guest Link technology, which provides guest room charging and TV connections.
The Beer Authority, operator of restaurants and bars in Manhattan, will operate Rattle N Hum West Craft Beer Bar & Kitchen in the hotel, providing breakfast, lunch, dinner, late-night bites and room service.
The 35-story hotel becomes the 13th New York hotel in M&R Hotel Management’s 16-hotel portfolio and fifth Holiday Inn hotel. M&R also manages five Holiday Inn Express hotels, including the Holiday Inn Express Manhattan Midtown West on West 48th Street. Both brands are franchised by InterContinental Hotels Group.
“The opening of this hotel marks several milestones for our company,” said Brian McSherry, M&R Hotel Management chief operating officer. “The Holiday Inn New York City – Times Square is the largest hotel in our portfolio, adds a full-service hotel to our growing presence on Manhattan’s West Side and extends our already strong relationship with InterContinental Hotels Group, parent of both the Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brands.”
M&R Hotel Management’s New York hotels include four in Manhattan, six in Queens and three in Staten Island. Rounding out the portfolio are a hotel in the Boston suburb of Braintree, Massachusetts, and hotels on the Caribbean islands of St. Maarten and Dominica.
