Courtyard Marriott Times Square puts you right in the middle of all that makes New York City great. You’re just steps away from the best in dining, theatre, and world-class entertainment. Our hotel’s iconic location, Times Square, is arguably the most famous New Year’s Eve destination in the world. But this famous address offers so much more than confetti, countdowns, and street celebrations. You can enjoy cuisine from around the world at any of the nearly 300 restaurants here. Indulge in authentic Italian dishes at Barbetta, opened in 1906 and still owned by the family that founded it, sup on classic French cuisine at Le Rivage, or enjoy classic “N’Awlins” flavor and festivities at Bourbon Street Bar + Grille. Your choices are nearly endless in this landmark neighborhood. In between meals, you can pack even more fun into your New York vacation by attending a comedy show at Caroline’s on Broadway, hobnobbing with wax celebs at Madame Tussauds, and seeing the incredible at Ripley’s Believe It or Not. And no adventure through Times Square is complete without seeing one of Broadway’s acclaimed theatre productions. Whether you’re looking for a hit musical, a classic drama, or a family-friendly blockbuster, you’ll find all this and more in this world-famous Theater District.


A leisurely 10-minute stroll or an even shorter subway ride brings you to one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World – The Empire State Building. This top New York City attraction, popularly known for its role in the epic King Kong films, boasts legendary 360-degree city views from its open-air observation deck, along with immersive exhibits and a variety of shops and restaurants. Even the lobby of this building is famous! Designated a historic landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the lobby showcases fantastic Art Deco inspired ceiling murals in 24-karat gold and one of the most famous images in New York City, a depiction of the building itself with beams of light radiating from the mast. You’ll want to remember your visit here with a special purchase from their extensive gift shop, as well.


A quick 5-minute ride on the subway from the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Times Square puts you right in the center of the action at Madison Square Garden. Known as the world’s most famous arena, this legendary venue, commonly referred to as The Garden, is home to the New York Rangers, the New York Knicks, and the New York Liberty. The Garden not only hosts more sporting events than any other NY venue, it is the premier destination for high-profile concerts and entertainment spectaculars. Exclusive VIP tours are available, offering a birds-eye view of the arena and the chance to get the inside scoop on your favorite players in the Knicks and Rangers locker rooms. For high-profile sports and entertainment, The Garden is the place to be while in NYC.


With so many entertainment options right outside its doors, Courtyard Marriott Times Square is the perfect choice for the most comfortable and convenient accommodations while visiting the Big Apple. We hope to see you here!
