Opening Day for The CitizenM Times Square is Getting Nearer
The stylish yet affordable CitizenM Hotels is getting closer and closer to opening their first hotel in the U.S.
Last we heard, the Times Square hotel at 218 W. 50th Street would open sometime in Summer 2013. While there's no website up and running for reservation yet, there is a Facebook page but more tellingly, CitizenM recently applied for a liquor license which could mean an opening is coming soon.
According to the hotel's developer, Brack Capital, the 22-story hotel will have 230 rooms, a living room-like lobby, pantry area, fitness center and most importantly, bars (plural) and a rooftop lounge. You can also expect free WiFi and stylish albeit small rooms (see photo above.) The liquor license application goes in front of the community board this Wednesday. Fingers crossed!

Meanwhile, Citizen recently tweeted that they are building "one Citizen at a time". They expect to open another hotel in NYC next year on the Bowery as well as at Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris in 2014 and even Rotterdam later this year. The world could always use more good Citizens.
