Give us your best elevator pitch for The TIME New York?
David Rockwell has created this diamond in the rough feeling for our location. The Time New York represents a new brand of luxury lifestyle hotels. Designed by David Rockwell, our hotel has a unique focus on art and design and offers an oasis in the heart of the theater district, just steps from Times Square.
What would you say is The TIME New York’s most unique offering?
We are one of the only boutique hotels in Time Square which allows us to really connect with the guests. We have an incredible focus on customer service and it’s amazing being part of a team who really cares about their guests and the core values of hospitality.
What do you think would surprise most planners to know about your space?
We have a fake wall! In between our pdr 1 and 2 there is a wall that can actually fold into the main wall and become one long room! Perfect for a group who wants a sit down dinner and then cocktails in a lounge atmosphere. It provides a private feeling with a full lounge environment. The diversity in our spaces are really great.
What is one thing you wish more event planners knew about your space?
We have very versatile meeting and event space, our two private rooms can be utilized on their own or combined to create a larger space and our lounge can be converted to fit an event of any kind.
What is the most memorable thing you’ve seen an event do with your space?
The most memorable event was definitely when we transformed the entire lounge into an authentic casino for the NYC Ballet annual charity event this year, the space looked like a totally different venue!
If you could throw one dream event, what would it be?
I like to get creative with my clients. I don’t have one event in mind, but the bigger the better for me. I love sitting down with the client and really getting a sense of what they are imagining, and make it come to life! I really love a good theme party!
