This is one of the greatest places to sit back, watch the world go by, and have a drink. The large windows overlook all of Times Sq, and the service has always been good.

Stayed at the hotel, but only ate once in the restaurant. Very good food, but wine was expensive at $16 a glass for Pinot

Planning a trip to NYC for the end of August and noticed the website says "R Lounge is temporarily closed for renovation". Is that correct? Any suggestions for a similar bar with a view of Times Square?

Newly renovated and framed by chic, whitewashed décor, our portal to Times Square is bursting with theatric energy and color. Gather at our communal tables and peer out at the bustling world outside our walls. At night, the space transforms with a DJ booth and beats that echo through the night. Let the neon glow light your way to a new sensory experience.
