At Residence Inn By Marriott New York Manhattan/Times Square, spacious suites provide a welcome urban getaway, and the aparthotel's ideal location just 1 block from the nearly 10-acre Bryant Park means you're steps away from an attractive outside oasis. Several areas of this accommodation--like the aptly named Bryant meeting room--feature views of the park, so you can look out over the grounds while you work.
After your meeting, take your laptop and enjoy the free Bryant Park wireless network. At the west end of the park, you can satiate your growling stomach with a gourmet sandwich from one of four 'wichcraft kiosks owned by award-winning chef Tom Colicchio. Catch an outdoor movie during the summer, or in winter months lace up your skates and glide on the ice at Citi Pond, the park's free outdoor skating rink. A half-mile from Bryant Park, enter Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum, where you can photograph yourself with wax renditions of celebrities. Later in the evening, see real-life celebrities on stage at one of multiple theaters in Times Square, less than a 10-minute walk from the hotel. For dinner before the show, Restaurant Row, about a half-mile from this Residence Inn, offers a panoply of options.
Once you're in for the night, challenge your friends to a game of pool in the hotel's lounge, Studio 100 Bar and Billiards, while sipping your favorite cocktail. If you need to plan your next business meeting, the property's 5 meeting rooms (totaling 5,000 square feet) provide ample space for strategizing with colleagues. Front-desk staff can assist with any copying or faxing needs. The hotel also offers a complimentary hot breakfast buffet each morning.
Standard rooms at Residence Inn have sitting areas, so you'll never feel crowded in these spacious studios. All rooms are equipped with complimentary wireless and wired high-speed Internet access. A full kitchen allows you to cook yourself a meal while you're away from home. And separate areas for working and eating, relaxing, and sleeping ensure that no one is under anyone else's foot--except perhaps for your dog, who's welcome here (for a surcharge).
