This opening is a dream come true. It took us nearly ten years to find for the most appropriate opportunity to invest in the right location in New York, in addition to the three years it took to prepare and build the hotel. However, without a doubt, all of the effort and work was worth it seeing how the Riu Plaza New York Times Square hotel is now a reality”, affirmed Luis Riu, CEO of Riu Hotels & Resorts. Luis Riu also made clear how “proud he is to offer our most trusted guests the opportunity to explore the city with us.”
