Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square to Open in August

NEW YORK—This August, Hilton will open Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square, the second hotel from the Motto by Hilton brand in New York City. The 400-room tower is in Manhattan’s Times Square neighborhood.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests to Motto by Hilton Times Square, a landmark moment for the brand and an ideal addition to Hilton’s presence in New York City,” said Theodora De Souza, brand leader, Motto by Hilton. “This new hotel exemplifies the Motto brand essence—it is centrally located in one of the city’s most famed neighborhoods and incorporates flexible and modern design elements, encouraging guests to connect and reflect on the cityscape, moments from the best of Broadway, museums, dining, and culture.”

Reimagining the footprint of a New York City hotel, Motto Times Square is for guests looking for connection and efficiency. Guestrooms have neutral textures while dynamic storage and technology synthesize their stay. The property’s signature restaurant The Alderman will offer a new take on the classic New York City diner with American food and craft cocktails.

Motto Times Square is set inside the city center. The hotel is near 41 Broadway theaters, outdoor attractions, and dining venues, while also being close to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the MoMA, The Guggenheim, Radio City Music Hall, and Rockefeller Center.

“Times Square is a neighborhood and destination all its own and the entire Motto by Hilton Times Square team is excited to welcome guests and locals to experience all this property and our neighborhood has to offer,” said Peter McNamee, general manager. “Combining unmatched hospitality, elevated design and a premiere location, Motto Times Square is sure to offer the most authentic taste of New York City.”

Inspired by combining 1920s New York City style and design with today’s modern lines and architectural elements, a palette of warm tones offsets access to the city. The connection to past and present is expressed throughout, with headboards mimicking the city skyline with curves and corners that reflect the architectural evolution of the city.

Art reinvents the lines and forms of 1920s fashion for the modern era of the 2020s. Art focused on shape scale replaces the technicolor displays outside with refined details. Communal spaces marry the archways and corners with a flow from The Commons to the lobby bar and into the on-property restaurant.

Motto Times Square will offer compact rooms with a modern design that are outfitted with sound-absorbing surroundings. The hotel features sets of connecting rooms, providing guests the ability to book up to six adjoining rooms together.

Other room details include:

  • Compact rooms are designed to provide a more efficient footprint, while in-room tech allows guests to personalize their space by adjusting the temperature and lighting by mobile device
  • Flexible sleeping setups, including a queen Bunkie (bunk bed) with a twin bed above, a queen flex bed that stows into the wall, and a standard queen bed
  • Design details including built-in storage and power outlets
  • Tiled showers with bath amenities and a vanity and full-size mirrors

As part of Motto by Hilton, Motto Times Square is committed to the brand’s investment in carbon offset projects across the globe that create impactful change.
