The new AC Hotel Times Square has opened in New York, with 290 rooms and 1,025sqm of event space.

There are two food and beverage options – popular NYC restaurant brand Boqueria will bring its Spanish cuisine and Castell, a year-round rooftop lounge open to guests and locals alike.

Other amenities include a 24-hour fitness centre and an AC Market featuring locally sourced items such as Hell’s Kitchen Hot Sauces.

"With the Spanish heritage of the AC Hotels by Marriott brand, our design-driven hotel brings new inspiration to the city," said Benjamin Britton, general manager of AC Hotel New York Times Square.

The hotel is located near the Garment District and only a short walk from the Times Square public transportation hub.

It is the first of two planned for the AC Hotels by Marriott brand in Manhattan this year, with a second property expected to open in the Financial District later in 2018.
