Millennium Hotels and Resorts, the global hospitality company, announces a new chapter for Millennium Broadway New York Times Square, which has become an affiliate hotel of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand on June 1, 2019 and has been renamed Millennium Times Square New York during the affiliation status. This follows the execution of a franchise agreement between subsidiaries of Hilton and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc.
Over the next few years, the hotel will receive full brand standard updates in order to operate as a DoubleTree by Hilton, one of the fastest growing global brands with more than 560 upscale hotels and more than 130,000 rooms across 45 countries. During this period, the hotel will operate as an affiliate property, which guests can book through Hilton.com and will benefit from the Hilton Honors program, where both business and leisure travellers can earn points towards free hotel stays and other perks.
During the period of transition, the 626-room hotel, which is situated in the heart of Times Square and enjoys convenient access to New York’s famed Broadway Theaters, will remain open for business and will continue to offer the service and value for which the Millennium Hotels and Resorts group is known. With 52,000 square feet of meeting space–in a city where space comes at a premium–the hotel is a brilliant option for conferences and events and for guests who want to make the most of a central location without compromising space or guest experience.
“We are pleased to extend our group’s relationship with Hilton with one of our flagship New York properties, building upon our successful relationship at the Millennium Hilton New York Downtown and the Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza. Hilton offers an impressive distribution system and we are confident that combining the two likeminded brands will lead to increased comfort and convenience for our guests during their stays in New York.” Commented Clive Harrington, Chief Commerical Officer, Millennium Hotels & Resorts.
