InterContinental Times Square opened officially yesterday at 44th Street and 8th Avenue. The 36 story hotel claims to be one of the most environmentally responsible hotels in town, soon to receive LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
Its 607 rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River or Broadway. The rooms have large spa-inspired bathrooms with walk-in rain showers, 42 inch HDTVs and both wired and wireless Internet access. And if you want to live in style there are 29 suites including a dramatic 2700-sq-ft Presidential Suite with three bedrooms, two-story living space and a master bedroom fireplace.
Doubles start at about $320 per night (rack rate is higher).
