Crowne Plaza Times Square is a 795-room hotel situated in the Times Square area of New York City's midtown Manhattan, located at 1601 Broadway,[1] between W48th and W49th Streets.[2] At 480 feet (146 meters),[2] with 46 floors,[1] it is the 94th tallest hotel in the world, the 29th tallest hotel in the United States, and the 15th-tallest hotel in New York City. The hotel was designed by The Alan Lapidus Group, completed in 1989[1] and opened in 1990.

The hotel is a mixed-use skyscraper with the 795-key Crowne Plaza hotel, 7,700 square feet of retail space, 197,000 square feet of office space, and a 159-space parking garage. New York's largest conference center, the American Management Association's Executive Conference Center, is on the sixth through eighth floors with a total of 88,066 square feet. Learning Tree International has 25,000 square feet; and the New York Sports Club has 28,418 square feet; in 2019, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts began construction on its latest New York store in retail space on street level. [1]

The hotel is the flagship of the Crowne Plaza brand. In 2008, the hotel underwent an $85 million renovation which revamped the lobby, restaurant and bar areas, as well as updated all of the guest rooms and the hotel's more than 23,000 square feet (2,100 m2) of function space. Amenities include the following: one of the largest hotel-based fitness facilities in the city, the New York Sports Club located on the 15th floor; the Broadway 49 Bar & Lounge overlooking Broadway; Brasserie 1605 with views of the 24/7 Times Square light show; two business centers; concierge; room service; and on-site valet parking. The Crowne Plaza Times Square is pet-friendly for quadrupeds up to 25 pounds.

In April, 2018 Vornado Realty Trust refinanced the hotel with a $250 million loan from Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley.[1]
