Hard Rock Hotel New York is a glamorous property, situated in the heart of vibrant Manhattan. This upscale hotel provides a superb base to explore the city and delivers a high level of service. Part of the much-loved brand that is synonymous with music, it features an impressive range of spacious rooms and suites – complete with a Crosley record player and vinyl, three fabulous dining options including a rooftop restaurant and an on-site entertainment venue.
The location of this hotel is hard to beat. It’s three blocks from bustling Times Square and the bright lights of Broadway and around the corner from 49th Street subway, providing access to all major lines to almost every Manhattan borough and beyond. Several Midtown attractions are an easy walk, including the Empire State Building, Bryant Park and Fifth Avenue for shopping – so put your trainers on and explore by foot. Be speedily transported 70 floors up to the observational deck at the Rockefeller Center. Or head over to The High Line, a unique attraction situated on a former New York Central railroad spur, on the west side of Manhattan, which is just one and a half miles away. Here you can grab a bite to eat at Chelsea Market or visit a gallery or art exhibition. Both JFK International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport are within a 20-mile radius.
With music at the heart of Hard Rock, it’s not surprising that your room is equipped with a Crosley record player, over-ear premium acoustic headphones and a curated collection of vinyl chosen by Hard Rock’s team of music experts. You can also reserve your choice of a Fender guitar which comes with headphones and an amplifier. A soundwave feature wall and music memorabilia are dotted around the room – don’t be alarmed when you see a life-size image of Bruce Springsteen on your door. Rooms and suites are spread over 36 floors and are surprisingly spacious by New York standards; some categories even feature a private, furnished balcony. Standard facilities include floor-to-ceiling windows offering city views, a Lavazza espresso coffee machine, Rock Spa toiletries, Sleep-Like-A-Rock luxury cotton linens and a flat-screen digital TV with infotainment. There’s plenty of USB charging sockets, an in-room banquette and table for work or dining, a laptop-sized safe and free Wi-Fi.
