Element Hotels opens its first New York City property in the heart of Times Square

Element New York Times Square West opened on 18th November 2010, the first Element hotel in New York City.  The hotel is one of the city’s greenest properties and an ‘eco haven’ in the centre of fast-paced Times Square. Starwood’s green trailblazer, Element continues to make history as the first major hotel brand to mandate that all its properties pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Element’s energising, eco-chic environment offers bright public spaces, smart design and modern touches. Every Element property is also a high-performance building where sustainable practices reduce waste and conserve resources.

Element New York Times Square West features 411 guest rooms and seven suites, two meeting rooms, a lobby atrium and a rooftop terrace with stunning views of The Empire State Building, Hudson River and Midtown Manhattan. The property boasts a wealth of amenities to keep guests active, healthy and balanced when on the road including complimentary wellbeing programmes and healthy food options. Rise, Element’s daily complimentary breakfast buffet, includes low-fat breakfast wraps and fruit smoothies, while Motion, the fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness centre, allows guests to practice fitness on-the-go. www.elementhotels.com/timessquarewest
