Located at 25 West 37th Street, the building first opened in 2013. It has 173 hotel rooms over 19 stories. Its website describes the hotel as “a unique Fifth Ave., Midtown Manhattan hotel with space and style at an affordable price.” It offers a fitness center and free lobby Wi-Fi and is near Times Square, Bryant Park the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, Macy’s Herald Square and a Madame Tussaud.

Its layout was designed by Kaufman so as to be functional and to retain the separation of spaces in the suites that are a SpringHill hallmark. Its metal panel façade includes green elements and pop-out features.

It was owned by Hidrock Realty which sold it to Hong Kong’s Keck Seng Investments, which specializes in hotels and office buildings. This marks Keck Seng’s entrance into the New York market.
