Renaissance Times Square provided block bookings for my wedding this September and it was a great overall experience working with the special events team to quote and reserve our rooms. It was especially challenging to find a hotel as we were getting married at the end of NY Fashion Week and the start of the UN General Assembly, so availability were at lows and rates were at peaks. Guests from around the world raved about the location and the quality of the rooms, one remarking how cool it was to see Diddy perform on the street during the MTV Music Video Award week. Highly recommend working with this property for any special event needs.

Great location! Walking distance to Bryant park, Candytopia, shopping, restaurants, Empire State Building and my favorite coffee shop (Starbucks). The hotel does have a restaurant and a bar on the third floor, which opens daily at 5:00pm. Food and drinks are pretty good. Glazed Salmon is delicious. Breakfast is included, also on the third floor. Beds and pillows are pretty comfortable, bathroom needs renovation though. Service is excellent, especially from Damian. If you want excellent service he is your guy.
