About Best Western Plus President Hotel At Times Square
Sleek mid-century modern décor at the Best Western Plus President Hotel at Times Square sets the tone for the adventures awaiting guests at "the Crossroads of the World," just beyond the lobby. Located in the heart of the Broadway theater district, you can't stay much closer to the action.
Between two major avenues on West 48th Street, all Times Square has to offer is a short stroll away. For pre-theater cocktails and dining, hop over to Restaurant Row along West 46th Street or down Ninth Avenue to find a myriad of establishments frequented by locals. On 42nd Street, cozy up to a wax lookalike of Benjamin Franklin or Lady Gaga at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Tired of the crowds? Pack a picnic for Central Park, just a 15-minute stroll uptown.
If Andy Warhol had designed the Lincoln Bedroom at the White House, it might've looked something like a suite at the Best Western Plus President Hotel. Each room, decorated with mid-century modern furnishings and outrageous colors, pays homage to presidents like Jefferson and Kennedy with pop-style portraits and thoughtful accents. In a room that honors President Obama, you'll find a copy of his autobiography on the nightstand. Well-insulated from the hubbub of neighboring Times Square, a good night's sleep is all but guaranteed with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets and a pillow-top mattress to complete the executive atmosphere.
Broadway fanatics with a passion for politics, or anyone looking for a bit of adventure in Times Square, will appreciate this Best Western Plus President Hotel's prime Times Square location and eye-popping design.
