Located in the heart of Manhattan, Hyatt Herald Square is a chic, contemporary hotel in the world’s most vibrant city. With an infusion of style, thoughtful decor, and personalized service, our Midtown hotel’s carefully selected design blends iconic fashion with the heritage of publishing. The industrial feel and high-style elements create a fluid experience for business and leisure travelers.
Every aspect of the hotel’s design exudes a mixture of fashion and industrial newspaper printing elements, composed of bright pops of colors, glass, custom fabrics and millwork, reclaimed wood, letterpress blocks, pounded metal and other nuanced details. The lobby, adorned with the artwork of nine local artists, serves as its own destination.
The inviting lobby features several themed communal areas including an espresso bar with café counter, an on-site market for on-the-go snacks and a library-themed lounge, bar and private dining space with comfortable seating and a bookshelf. Upon arrival, hotel ambassadors will personally greet each guest and invite them to experience the lobby or head to their guestroom.
To create a seamless experience between check-in and settling in, the traditional check-in desk experience has been abandoned for a smooth, bowl-shaped desk toward the back of the lobby sitting in front of a curved metal door with embossed lettering.
