The 452-room hotel rises 42 storeys from behind a 17,000-square-metre LED billboard that wraps around its bottom half. Unlike other hotels nearby, the Edition’s hotel ground floor entrance is relatively nondescript with a glass curtain and cream limestone doorway. Inside, a long cream bench guides guests to the lobby elevators, with a metallic custom art installation hanging like a bullseye at end of the hall.

Throughout the Times Square Edition, Yabu Pushelberg emphasizes botanicals and a neutral color palette. It’s a combination that, according to Pushelberg, can appeal to both the uptown and downtown crowds, leveraging influences from Central Park’s iconic Tavern on the Green and hip supper clubs below 14th street.

The guestrooms, with their non-reflective surfaces, create an enclave far from the flashing signage and shock-jock colors of the streetscape. The color palette is almost ethereal: white-washed oak herringbone floors, white sheer drapery with ivory blackout lining, a custom long-bleached European wide plank larch desk, a custom-designed armchair in ivory leather upholstery and ivory large-slab ceramic floor tiles in the shower.

Very small footprints appear larger by opening up the entrance to the bathrooms, as well as soaking tubs and terraces in the corner suites that maintain a connection to the outside. The artwork also distances these spaces from the neighborhood kitsch.
