Hotel Spotlight: The Gallivant Times Square

Step outside of your hotel room in New York City and you are soon in full-fledged New Yorker mode. That is why you need a centrally located hotel that helps you navigate the arts, entertainment, and nightlife of the city that never sleeps. Gallivant Hotel has just been re-opened and re-imagined with the idea that you are a traveler in a world of tourists. The boutique hotel in the middle of New York City is your go-to property for an adventurous city vacation. It is time that you explore Manhattan.


With 336 rooms the Gallivant is boutique enough to feel cozy but still large enough to get some of the amenities that larger more established properties provide. (This hotel was formerly the TRYP New York Times Square by Wyndham) This is an upscale property that can cater to the refined tastes of travelers be they in town on business or on vacation. Family friendly rooms offer bunk beds while those traveling for work will appreciate the business center and designated meeting space.


New York City is right out the front door so food options are plentiful but the hotel has two restaurants that are on the premises. DING serves Korean barbeque favorites and An-nam is specializing in Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine. The Hotel’s location at 48th and Broadway allows for a convenient stroll in almost any direction for a taste of New York City.


From the hotel’s location, Times Square is 3 minutes away. MoMA is 5 blocks away and Rockefeller Center is practically next door. Of course, all of that is great but not as good as being right in the heart of the theatre district. If you have come to New York City to see live theatre you can get there within minutes from this prime location.




The perfect New York City day can be filled with a morning walk to Central Park with a stop at a deli for a sandwich and then a quick selfie in front of Carnegie Hall. From there you could choose between the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Museum of Natural History or just a long day on the great lawn. Shopping on Park Ave or a ride on the Subway over to Brooklyn is all convenient from the Gallivant Hotel.
