Worldhotels today announced that the Sanctuary Hotel New York is the newest to join its Deluxe Collection. Just steps from the vibrant excitement of Times Square, the Sanctuary Hotel is at the center of Manhattan’s most exhilarating attractions. With nearly 500 hotels in 250 destinations and 65 countries worldwide, Worldhotels is a leading group for independent hotels.
“The Sanctuary Hotel New York offers a fantastic location and fabulous amenities that will make it a popular choice with our guests,” said Tom Griffiths, vice president, Worldhotels-The Americas. “We are excited to add another world-class hotel to our Deluxe Collection and bring our guests this great option for their Midtown experience.”
“Our hotel is a discreet and timeless escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. We deliver a unique approach to service with our very own S.T.A.R.™(Service Tailored to Any Request) Experience Program. A highly personalized concierge service that is tailored to the specific needs of each guest,” explained Jeremy Poon, hotel general manager. “Our affiliation with Worldhotels will offer additional perks to our guests and enable us to raise our visibility to an even wider global audience of travelers.”
The Sanctuary Hotel New York is conveniently located on 47th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues where it meets Broadway. Times Square, the Chrysler Building, the Broadway Theater District, Rockefeller Center, and Radio City Music Hall are all within a leisurely walk from the hotel. Grand Central Terminal, Fifth Avenue shopping, and Columbus Circle are just minutes away.
The hotel offers stylish accommodations, and lavish amenities. Guest rooms are richly detailed with chocolate leather headboards, crystal chandeliers, glass‐walled showers, marble countertops, and leather‐printed wall tiles. Accents of brown glass, honey onyx, smoked glass, and brushed brass create a vibrant and chic lodging experience.
S.T.A.R.™ Experience Managers are readily available to assist in planning a memorable NYC visit with the highest attention to detail. They can arrange everything from securing transportation, restaurant reservations, theater and event tickets, room customization requests, or anything else that your heart may desire. The hotel offers complimentary high-speed wireless Internet throughout, Continental breakfast, and complimentary morning coffee and tea service, and concierge and business services. Food and beverage offerings include the HAVEN Rooftop Lounge and Restaurant with French-inspired cuisine. Tender restaurant will open in April 2014 featuring New American cuisine and Foxhole Lounge will open later this year.
With the addition of the Sanctuary Hotel, Worldhotels has 10 Manhattan locations.
