The Gallivant Times Square at 234 W. 48th Street has been unveiled as a renamed and reimagined boutique hotel. Formerly the TRYP New York Times Square by Wyndham, The Gallivant Times Square is now an independent hotel managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts. The hotel became a TRYP property only last August 2015. It was known as the Plaza Central hotel before that.

Capturing the spirit of travel and discovery, The Gallivant is a chic, 336-room boutique hotel that serves as the ideal basecamp for Manhattan dining, nightlife, theatre, entertainment, and exploration. Rates start at $243 per night this month.

“We’ve emerged as a top boutique hotel in the middle of all the action of New York City with a new name that captures the essence of why people travel here,” said General Manager of The Gallivant, Chris Hosmer. “To travel in the pursuit of pleasure or entertainment is the definition of ‘gallivant’ and every piece of our hotel from its prime location, well-appointed rooms and amenities inspires adventure and discovery for New York travelers.”

With 336 guestrooms in variable layouts catering to the business traveler, family planner or weekend warrior, The Gallivant offers an upscale, comfortable, affordable New York City experience. In-room fitness equipment, bunk beds, a full presidential suite with rooftop balcony are all made available to ensure guests feel at home while they explore the city.

The eclectic, chic, travel-themed décor of The Gallivant captures the excitement and energy of New York City. From in-room maps to location signs in the lobby, The Gallivant inspires exploration. The hotel features an on-site concierge, fitness center, 300 square-feet of boardroom-style meeting space, business center with printing and available catering services, with breakfast available for purchase in the lobby each morning. DING, featuring Korean barbeque and An-nam, serving Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine, are restaurants attached to the hotel, offering guests popular dining options.

TRYP by Wyndham has another hotel in Manhattan just 13 blocks south at 345 W. 35th St.
