The Novotel Times Square's Terrace has the Best Seat in Town

It's crazy to think that a hotel that can offer a view like this would keep it covered up, but, until this summer, that's exactly what the Novotel New York Times Square was doing.

Luckily Stonehill + Taylor, the design firm behind the NoMad, Refinery, and Ace Hotels, got hold of the Novotel Time Square (the European brand's only U.S. property) and, as well as giving the rooms a characteristically hip new look, also opened up the 5,700-square foot seventh-floor wraparound terrace into the beauty you see now. Behold the new Supernova bar.

We've already told you about the hotel's new futuristic theme and, while it is definitely fun and so right for Times Square, it's the terrace that's got us really excited. There are so few terrace bars in this area, this one is bound to be popular -- especially on New Year's Eve; you might want to book a table now.

(The aerialist -- who was actually performing in the indoor bar -- isn't a standard feature, alas. She was just there for opening night).

Midweek rates at the Novotel start at $330 a night but we found a room with two beds this weekend for just $320 a night.
