NEW YORK—Following a comprehensive, $20-million renovation earlier this year, The Time New York unveils four new spaces for private meetings and events. The 193-room hotel was reimagined by Rockwell Group as a destination for creative professionals, local residents and out-of-town guests.
“At The Time, we take pride in being able to offer our guests the best of both business and pleasure,” says Kanvar Singh, general manager of The Time New York. “Inspired by modern art and the infinite concept of time, our private event spaces evoke a welcoming yet refined design sensibility, and I’m thrilled to introduce these new offerings to our guests.”
The hotel features spaces for small- to mid-sized business meetings, events and cocktail receptions enhanced by highly stylized interiors, custom catering and smart, high-speed technology, including digital projection screens and complimentary WiFi.
With a focus on executing a seamless experience, dedicated onsite planners are available for continued assistance throughout every phase of the event-planning process. They will personally oversee every detail, from reservation confirmations and billing transactions to VIP guest accommodations and private event management to personal, as well as hand-picked concierge recommendations.
Following a comprehensive renovation by designer David Rockwell, the hotel’s triplex penthouse suite blends refined urban edge with over-the-top opulence throughout, according to the company. There is 2,000 sq. ft. of accommodations over three floors, a 500-sq.-ft. private balcony and two outdoor terraces offering views of the Hudson River.
Located adjacent to the penthouse triplex suite on the top floor of the hotel, the Glass Pavilion is a 450-sq.-ft. hideaway. The atrium’s floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer 360-degree views of Times Square, for both celebratory functions and small working sessions, up to 30 guests seated or 40 guests for a reception.
The 500-sq.-ft. boardroom is available for corporate events and personal gatherings, accommodating up to 24 guests seated and 35 standing. Audiovisual technology allows for seamless visual presentations while catering menus can be tailored for seated functions and reception-style events.
With a mezzanine location semi-hidden from view of the lobby, the dimly lit, 2,000-sq.-ft. lounge radiates an atmosphere as progressive as it is private, according to the company. The lounge is also available for a full buyout for private functions or corporate events up to 40 guests standing.
