“I can’t believe I’m staying so close to Times Square, downtown Manhattan New York. The view from our room at CitizenM New York is damn pretty, but the view from their roof terrace is even more mesmerizing!”
CitizenM New York is a cross between a style-conscious boutique and a pod hotel. When we arrive after a long flight we quickly use the self-check-in at the welcome kiosk in the art-filled double-height lobby staffed by friendly hosts. The room compact but perfect for us, no space is wasted. The bed is quite huge and perfect for pillow fights. To compensate for their size, public areas, including a buzzy lobby bar, a quieter mezzanine library and guests-only rooftop lounge, are spacious and inviting. I absolutely love the rooftop bar with terrace, fire place and damn good cocktails.
The Times Square location, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue on West 50th Street, is equally tourist- and theatergoer-friendly, with seven subway lines within four blocks!
