The Hyatt Centric Times Square is located directly off of Times Square in NYC by one block. It’s a phenomenal location, especially if you’re in town to see theater shows.
The front desk was directly ahead as you walked in, though every time I approached the desk I noticed a wait of several minutes. I think with a hotel in such a desirable location they should have planned for a larger desk or more staffing.
I was upgraded to a view King room, which overlooked a portion of Times Square and the surrounding area. The hotel floors themselves are actually rather small, so this hotel isn’t as nearly as big as the Grand Hyatt, if you’ve stayed there.
Internet was reasonably fast. Housekeeping staff did knock on the door several times during the morning thinking I was checked out, not realizing I was a Globalist member with a 4p late checkout, so that was one gripe I had with this property.
Overall, not a bad hotel – good location, decent rooms…but nothing over the top. You really pay for the location here more than anything. All else being equal I actually prefer staying at the Grand Hyatt due to the club access I get there.
