Luxury Skyscraper Times Square!

Apartment - Private room · W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036, United States

The Space

The Room is in a 3 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom apartment in a true luxury hi-rise building. The room is essentially it's own studio - it's huge and has it's own living room in it.

The apartment is on one of the top floors (40 floors in the building) and has floor to ceiling windows with views of the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Hudson, etc.

The kitchen has granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. The building has a gym (just renovated - no amenity fees), laundry service, sun deck and concierge.

The Apartment is located right on the edge of Hell's Kitchen (42nd between 9th & 10th). There are many restaurants, bars, and the younger crowd is very prevalent here. Your are 2 avenues away from Times Square (5 minute walk) and a 2 minute walk away from Port Authority Transportation Hub. You can get anywhere in the city by subway or bus from here - very convenient.

Room Details: 20 x 15 with North, East, and West views.

The Apartment is very well kept and the room is always spotless. My Dad is a professional photographer so I have an eye for artwork. The apartment has been decorated in a modern sleek style which is represented by both the furniture and artwork.

Utilities in the apartment include internet (high speed - 50mb download), cable TV, electricity and water. There are no extra costs for utilities.

You would be sharing the apartment with two roommates, both are working professional one male and one female.

They are respectful of everyone's space and privacy but also like being sociable, if that's what your looking for.

The room has it's own Living Room with a 42 Inch Flatscreen TV, epic Bose Sound System. Mac Mini and PS3. My friends often refer to my room as my own Studio as I have everything.

The room has a Queen Size Bed with a large very comfortable leather couch. The place could host 3 people - 2 in the bed and 1 on the couch. I also have a queen sized air mattress which can be easily set up in the room.

Non smokers is a must.

I'd say I'm a great host and have always had people ranting and raving about the place. Happy to answer any questions and hopefully you'll be looking to stay here.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Usually don't write reviews but this just needs to be said. I had such a great stay here.. Besides the amazing views of manhatten -- that make you stand by the window for hours --I also had my own TV, with Netflix and apple TV all hooked up.. my own bathroom which had Clinique soap, soft towels and the bathroom was super clean and huge! Tom is such a nice guy, and the atmosphere in the apartment was so welcoming and relaxed.

  • We had a great time staying at Tom's apartment. Very clean and there was plenty of space for two of us. The apartment was in a fantastic location, and house mate was really nice. I would highly recommend this place and I would definitely consider staying there again if I return to New York.

  • We were staying at Tom's place for ca. 1 week and it was absolutely awesome!! It's a very nice appartment, next to all important and interesting places to visit like for example the Times Square. Tom is a great young man, who really cares about people who's visiting him and a really sympatic person - we've become good friends! Can't wait to go to visit him another time! :-)))))))))))))

  • This is such an amazing place in New York City. The views are incredible, I had to spend a couple minutes in awe of the amazing views. Tom is such a kind, helpful and wonderful host. He made my stay such a wonderful experience. His place is in a central place close to Times Square and all the action in the city. I highly recommend Tom's place to anyone who is going to visit NYC and wants to live like a New Yorker with excellent style!

  • I spent 3 awesome weeks in Tom´s apartment.
    Location - absolutely great in Hell´s Kitchen, near to everywhere (lots of the bars and restaurants, Port Authority - bus terminal,Times Square,Central Park,Madison Square Garden etc.). 37th floor view is amazing and believe me, the falling asleep and waking up with the Empire State Building behind the windows is unbelievable.
    Apartment - large bedroom (clean and safe) with shared kitchen and bathroom. Roomies are respectful for your stay. No problem with it at all. You can also use the gym on the 4th floor for free (I did).
    Tom - He is great host and my stay easier.
    10/10 rating is absolutelly correct.

Hi, I'm Tom. I'm from Scotland and have been living in New York for the last 4 years. I'm a really high energy guy with a go getter mind set. Really positive outlook on life and see everything as an opportunity to have fun. I'm really social, love going out and am always looking to meet new people, experience new things and get myself out there. I'm also very hard working and extremely driven - always got something exciting going on business wise. I love going out, whether its for dinner, to bars or clubbing - I'm big into my nightlife. I'm also a huge movie buff so love seeing the latests flicks. Fitness is huge passion of mine, keeps me focused. Running, soccer, weights and recently Crossfit....cant speak highly enough of it. I am a huge fan of House/Electronic Dance Music (love Swedish House Mafia). I also love and I mean love Nachos. On TV my favorite show is a British Comedy called The Inbetweeners...absolutely amazing. As for travelling I've been really lucky to have traveled a lot (It's a British thing) pretty much been most places from all over Eastern Europe, most of North America, parts of Asia as well as living in New Zealand for a year. My 2014 New Years Resolution is I cant go anywhere I've ever been before....Brazil, Ibiza and Colombia are all planned so far for this year. Style wise when I'm traveling I like things clean and modern. As you can tell from my Apartment its always in tip top condition and very stylish.
