Hilton has opened the first property under its “approachable” lifestyle brand Tempo.

The 661-room Tempo by Hilton Times Square is housed within 36 floors of the 46-storey TSX Broadway tower, a mixed use development combining the existing Palace Theatre with new retail, food and entertainment space.

The hotel’s lobby is located on the 11th floor, along with signature restaurant / cocktail lounge Highball with outdoor dining terrace, and Grab & Go for quick bites and Bluestone Lane coffee.

Among the room categories are nine Wellness Rooms – equipped with Peloton bikes, yoga mat and resistance bands – and 31 Ball Drop rooms with views of the Times Square Ball.

  • Motto by Hilton New York City Times Square (accepting reservations from 25 September)
  • Home2 Suites by Hilton New York Times Square (accepting reservations from 1 November)
  • Hampton Inn by Hilton New York Times Square (accepting reservations from 1 November)

Hilton unveiled the Tempo brand in 2020, designed for “a growing segment of ‘modern achievers’ who seek a hotel experience that reflects their ambition”.
