Yotel will be opening its first city based hotel in Times Square, NY next year.

Yotel, which has been an innovator in establishing micro hotel facilities called “pod” hotels at major airports of the world, has now ventured into opening hotels in cities too. Their first hotel is scheduled to open in 2011 in New York's Times Square.

The hotel, designed by the Rockwell group, will have all luxury amenities such as business lounges, a bar and restaurant. The hotel will have a capacity of 669 rooms and each room will be twice the size of a capsule in a Yotel's pod airport hotel. The rooms will be furnished with motorised beds and mood lighting.
