A Times Square Hotel Near All the Action.
Folks in the media industry have a name for those giant electric billboards in Times Square: "spectaculars." How appropriate. Everything you see at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue is a spectacle, an unapologetic exhibition of art, commerce and urban life. All intermingling in a multi-sensory experience: from the hottest shows on Broadway to the Toys "R'" Us six-story Ferris wheel to countless human characters parading the streets. And Ink48 is only a few blocks from the endless entertainment. Our Times Square hotel positions you in the center of excitement and entertainment, art and shopping, and everything in between.
As the busiest theater district in the world, Time Square has something for everyone: gripping dramas, musicals, romances, comedies. Sometimes all in the same play. Pick up tickets at the theater's box office, or be spontaneous and visit the TKTS Discount Booth for half off same-day tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. Don't feel like sitting still for your Broadway experience? Walkin' Broadway has a walking tour highlighting Times Square's rich theater legacy. Aspiring New York actors and directors take you through the theater district while your personal headset plays show tunes and exclusive interviews with Broadway greats.
Shop till you flop onto your posh Ink48 bed. (Look forward to that.) As you can imagine, opportunities to spend your money in Times Square as numerous as neon lights. You've got a 90,000-square-foot fashion mecca with 151 fitting rooms and 30 cash registers. On the other end of the commercial spectrum is Muji, with its minimalist presentation of everything from stationery to furniture and clothing, and overlooking a peaceful garden. Ahhh. Maybe end with that one.
Kids "R" Welcome. Traipsing around Times Square with your children will doubtless bring out the kid in you. Start at Toys "R" Us with its towering Ferris wheel, a life-size Barbie dollhouse and an animatronic T-Rex that's 20 feet tall. Indulge your child's sweet tooth (and yours, too, who's kidding whom?) at two sugary wonderlands: Hershey's Times Square (customize a jumbo Hershey's Kiss) and M&M's World New York (find out your M&M personality via the Color Mood Analyzer). If you haven't yet had a brush with fame, take the kids to Madame Tussauds New York wax museum, where you're sure to spot someone you know out of the 200-plus celebrities. Discovery Times Square immerses you in exhibits on King Tut, Da Vinci and the Titanic. Ever seen a six-legged cow or an albino giraffe? You can answer "yup" after a visit to Ripley's Believe It or Not!
And more. Amazing restaurants. Comedy shows. One-of-a-kind street performances. We could go on and on. But won't it be better if you come see Times Square for yourself? Ink48 will counterbalance the hyper excitement with our show-stopping chic elegance and our genuine people. Promise.
