The newest Hard Rock Hotel is now accepting reservations.
Hard Rock Hotel New York, one of the brand’s most anticipated new openings, will officially welcome its first guests in April 2022 at 159 West 48th Street, close to Times Square and Broadway.
The hotel will feature 446 rooms and specialty suites highlighted by the Rock Star Suite on the hotel’s 34th floor, a bi-level glass-enclosed penthouse suite with massive city views, music memorabilia, and one of the largest terraces in New York City.
The property will pay homage to the city’s storied music history, with live music across all public spaces inside and tributes to the city’s recording studios and music stores that once lined 48th street. Like other Hard Rock properties, the New York hotel will include some signature music memorabilia curated specifically for the Big Apple including a pair of silver patent leather boots worn by Lady Gaga, handwritten lyrics for John Lennon’s 1972 ode to his adopted home, and more.
For dining, the hotel will offer NYY Steak, a concept built in partnership with the New York Yankees that offers some heritage-source steaks, local seafood, and some “approachable” main dishes with Yankee autographs adorning the walls and player numbers inscribing the china.
Elsewhere on the property, RT60 Rooftop Bat will offer cocktails and great city views with some DJ accompaniment, and the three-story atrium and open-air terrace at the Sessions Restaurant & Bar will offer dining combined with some live music performances.
The “show-stopping feature,” according to Hard Rock, will be The Venue at Music Row, a flexible entertainment space that can fit up to 400 guests, perfect for fashion shows, after-parties, and gala dinners.
Other features include Hard Rock’s Rock Om yoga program, Sound of Your Stay curate playlists, Crosley record players available on request, and more.
In a statement, Dale Hipsh, senior vice president of hotels for Hard Rock International, said that the timing was right to bring a new Hard Rock to the "culture capital of the world."
"New York City is the culture capital of the world and as a brand, we have been eagerly anticipating the right opportunity to bring our entertainment-infused hospitality experience to this market. Hard Rock Hotel New York creates the perfect home base for exploring the city's most exciting attractions, but what's more, are the curated experiences for guests and locals that only we can offer through one-of-a-kind partnerships and collaborations with legendary artists, performers and musicians."
