About EconoLodge Times Square
West 47th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues is like a little oasis in the middle of the Theater District. Tree-lined and quiet, it boasts a number of mom-and-pop shops, a school, a playground and the EconoLodge Times Square hotel. It’s the perfect location for the traveler who wants basic accommodations in a convenient location, but doesn't want to be kept up all night by street noise.
Large windows in the lobby let the sun stream into the room. A business center is open to the rest of the lobby, which also serves double-duty as the breakfast room. Here, a continental breakfast – including authentic New York City bagels – is served each morning from 6am–9am.
There are 51 guest rooms spread out over six floors – because of the way the building is laid out, all the views are of 47th Street, which means nobody will wake up facing a wall. All rooms are basic and clean, offering travelers a queen-sized bed, desk and flat-screen TV. All the bathrooms have a bathtub and some come with small refrigerators too.
Did you know?
The Brooks Atkinson Theatre (at 256 W. 47th St.) is named not for an actor or producer but a legendary New York Times theatre critic.
The Times Square portion of Broadway is also known as "The Great White Way" because of the way that stretch glowed from all the theatre marquees, after the first electric billboard appeared in 1903.
Until the mid-1800s, New York's theatre district was downtown, near City Hall. As performances became more popular, the theatres moved uptown, towards the more affluent residents of the city.
Business travelers looking for a central location with free Wi-Fi will find the EconoLodge Times Square a great choice. Fans of Broadway theater should look no further – the stretch just east of the hotel is packed with shows and musicals of every stripe.
