The Best And Brightest of New York City

Staying at The Iroquois New York puts you just a few blocks from New York's beating heart and the best Times Square attractions.
Times Square bustles with entertainment every night. The best rock bands and hip-hop artists come to the PlayStation Theater, but if jazz is more your style, the Iridium brings virtuoso performers to the stage.
