Situated in the 1926 Taft Hotel building, a 22-story Spanish Renaissance—style structure on Seventh Avenue, this Italian-inspired hotel is just a four-minute walk from Times Square. Inside, the spacious marble lobby is furnished with a large crystal chandelier, a red and silver velvet banquette, and Veronese-style oil paintings. Gold-paneled elevators lead to the 179 guestrooms, all of which have marble foyers, Empire-style cherry furniture, and marble bathrooms with oversize soaking tubs and Etro bath products. Complimentary espresso and pastries are available each morning in the lobby, while the Insieme Lounge serves contemporary Italian cuisine for lunch and dinner.
