NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shining a new light in the neighborhood this fall is LUMA Hotel Times Square, set to open its doors later this year. Located on 41st Street between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas in the heart of New York City, the property is conveniently situated near prominent Fortune 500 companies, developing tech firms, international fashion houses and countless attractions, reflecting the ambition and allure of the city.
Designed by New York architect Peter Poon, LUMA's sleek all glass curtain wall facade illuminating the space between two classic pre-war buildings, will boast 130 well-appointed guest rooms and suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows for enjoying natural light and taking in views of Manhattan. LUMA's rooms were designed to be sleek, neutral, soothing and anticipatory of every guest demand – whether for business or leisure – every guest room will boast its own hot spot to deliver lightning fast complimentary Wi-Fi, plush beds and Nespresso coffee, ETRO bath amenities, and Frette linens, bathrobes and slippers.

The adjacent bar will offer signature cocktails and a robust wine program, as well as ample bar and café-style seating.
The ground floor lobby has been designed by CCS Architecture, a San Francisco and New York-based design and architecture firm headed up by Cass Calder Smith, who personally oversaw the design, drawing inspiration from the ethos of illumination.
