This is one of the greatest places to sit back, watch the world go by, and have a drink. The large windows overlook all of Times Sq, and the service has always been good.

Stayed at the hotel, but only ate once in the restaurant. Very good food, but wine was expensive at $16 a glass for Pinot

I was a part of a private customer event at R Lounge inside the Renaissance Times Square and the views are just amazing. Floor to ceiling windows on an upper floor create a unique vantage point to take in the craziness of Times Square. What set out event apart was the great staff of the Renaissance Hotel. They were terrific... More

I can only say AMAZING. The drinks are so awesome and so reasonably priced that you could go on for many rounds without even thinking. I like trying cocktails and Uptowner was totally worth it. The place is big and has pretty amazing seating, cozy and comfy. You can sink in those large chairs and just enjoy your evening. Very... More

The view is second to none. There are a few tables right in the front so you have an unobstructed view. This restaurant is IN the Renaissance hotel. The menu is very limited with only a half dozen entrée choices. The largest part of the menu is the drinks, I guess due to the location. The Menu selections we did... More

The restaurant was cute, clean and the staff was very attentive and friendly. Its located in the Renaissance in Times Square and we were given a table looking... More

The view on Times Square down below is just exceptionnal, even though this place is only on the fourth floor. Drinks are normally priced - margaritas tasted good. The waiters are not very welcoming - the first thing they tell you is that you have an hour, not more - but you can live with it and after this strange... More

Booked the exclusive and pricey NYE party - but we were treated to everything we wanted. Seated one row back from the window and saw the ball drop - wonderful. Great atmosphere, with delicious food, drinks till 1 am, professional dancers, photo booth, fun, fans, and the view you cannot drag your eyes from. It is everything it promises to... More

My friends and I came here to celebrate my birthday while in the city. It was late when we got there, so we only had about an hour to really enjoy it. Beautifully decorated, and the view can not be beat. We had fun with Dawson, who apparently is not a fan of our Patriots, but sent over a dessert... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
