7 Reasons Why We Still Love Element Times Square West
We have made no attempts to disguise our love for Element Hotels here at HC HQ. We just wish there were more of them.
Many Elements are found in suburban areas or near airports, like the newish Element Miami International Airport. But one of our favorites is the Element Times Square West.
We toured the property back in 2010 when it first opened, and recently had the chance to stay at the hotel while in NYC for a super-quick jaunt. Between the location near Times Square and Port Authority, the killer views from the little but somehow-still-secret rooftop, and all the thoughtful ways the hotel caters to guests of the 21st century, we were won over again, two years later.
If you're not familiar with the Element perks, here's the deal: you get Free WiFi, free breakfast, free coffee throughout the day, and there's a 24-hour 'grab and go'-style shop for picking up beer, granola or microwave meals you can heat up in your room. There's even a washer and dryer and roomy gym on the premises. (If we move back to NYC, we may just consider moving in here.)
Click through our gallery for our Top 7 Reasons Why We Still Love Element Times Square West -- and would recommend it to any friend or family member traveling to NYC for a day or week.
