The Sanctuary Hotel in the heart of Times Square will reopen to overnight guests beginning on Tuesday, September 1st. The luxury boutique oasis, located steps away from Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park and The Museum of Modern Art, has 115 luxurious guest rooms. Each has been fully-sanitized, since safety and cleanliness is of utmost importance. In order to give visitors the best and safest experience, the hotel’s team has implemented additional safety protocols for The Sanctuary Hotel’s entire team, including but not limited to: washing hands frequently, using protective masks and gloves, taking temperatures upon entering the property and providing safety signs around the property.
This Midtown Manhattan escape was designed to be a relaxing retreat and the intention is evident the moment you pass through the thick wood-carved door embellished with gold accents. Crystal chandeliers, tufted leather and a cozy nook with a fireplace create a welcoming oasis for guests from near and far. Each room boasts lush European linens along with indulgent at-home amenities that provide more than a restful night’s sleep.
Guests have two rain or shine, year-round dining options atop The Sanctuary Hotel, including the new Sushi Lab Rooftop and the perennially popular Haven Rooftop. Haven Rooftop offers guests delicious food and craft cocktails nightly. Favorites include tuna tartare, Buffalo wings, Branzino and Steak Au Poivre with peppercorn sauce. Pair that with a Cloudtini or summer sangria for a truly elevated experience. Haven Rooftop is open Monday to Friday from 3pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am, they now offer Happy Hour from 4-6pm on weekdays, as well as bottomless brunch on weekends from 11:30am – 3pm.
The Sanctuary Hotel also partnered with NY1 Minute to provide brides and/or grooms with everything from officiants, to virtual zoom setups for family and friends that can’t make it to the big day. NY1 Minute prepares intimate weddings with experienced elopement photographers, videographers and NYC wedding officiants available even at the last minute. Haven Rooftop is perfect for intimate weddings for up to 50 guests, which can be hosted year-round in an exclusive VIP lounge as well as the hotel’s North and South Cabana.
