Margaritaville Resort Times Square Named “Best New Hotel”

Margaritaville Resort Times Square, developed and owned by real estate and investment firm Soho Properties, landed top honors as “Best New Hotel” on USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Nominated by a panel of industry experts and voted the winner by readers, the highly-anticipated resort in New York City opened to glowing guest reviews in June 2021. This designation is the third for Margaritaville; the first time in the contest’s history that one brand has claimed the “Best New Hotel” accolade more than once. Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg won in 2018 and Margaritaville Hotel Nashville won in 2019.

“This award, and initial nomination by tourism professionals, is proof of our dedication to exceptional guest service for locals and visitors alike. At Margaritaville Resort Times Square, we are committed to creating a casual, yet elevated, experience and escape in the heart of Manhattan,” said Kori Yoran, General Manager of Margaritaville Resort Times Square. “We are excited to continue expanding our exciting programming and offerings in 2022 and beyond.”

“After a challenging few years, this honor means so much for the hundreds of team members involved in successfully bringing the resort to life this past summer,” added Sharif El-Gamal, Chairman and CEO of Soho Properties & Owner and Developer of Margaritaville Resort Times Square.

The 32-story hotel transports guests to an island oasis in Times Square and features 234 guestrooms, five restaurants and bars, a year-round outdoor heated pool, and a street-level Margaritaville retail store. Located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 40th Street, Margaritaville Resort Times Square is blocks away from the bright lights of the entertainment district and New York’s most notable attractions, shopping, and museums. Regular live music and entertainment throughout the property keep the energy high year-round. Now with Margaritaville Resort Times Square, visitors to New York, as well those who live in the area looking for a staycation, can sightsee in the city and vacation at Margaritaville.
