AC Hotel Opens in Midtown Manhattan

The 290-key Marriott property located near Times Square is the company’s first AC Hotel in New York City.

Marriott’s 290-key AC Hotel New York Times Square opened in Manhattan. The property is the first of two planned for the borough this year, with a second expected to open in the Financial District.

“We are so pleased to welcome AC Hotel New York Times Square to the AC Hotels family as our first New York City property,” Benoit Racle, global brand leader of AC Hotels by Marriott, said in a prepared statement.

The hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan, at 260 W. 40th St. It is near the Garment District and a half-block from the Times Square public transportation hub. Madame Tussauds is only three minutes away by foot and Times Square is within a 10-minute walk. Central Park is a little more than a mile away, while New York landmarks such as The Museum of Modern Art, the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center are also within walking distance.

Among the amenities of the design-driven hotel are a rooftop lounge, 24-hour fitness center and 3,365 square feet of event space.
