LUMA Hotel Times Square is Temporarily Closed

Due to COVID-19's impact on travel demand in New York City, we have made the agonizing decision to temporarily close our hotel. We feel this is in the best interest of our incredible talent, our guests and our community.

Since we first opened our doors three years ago, we have been welcoming guests to New York City with our genuine and unparalleled service. Our hearts go out to everyone who is navigating these unprecedented times, globally. Please check back for updates, and for additional information, please contact

Please stay home, take care of yourselves and your families. We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so – and we can’t wait to welcome you back!

On behalf of the LUMA team,
Kate Martin
General Manager

Chasing Light Photography Tour

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 October 15, 2019 LUMA Hotel Times Square

LUMA is collaborating with renown commercial & editorial photographer Grant Legan on Chasing Light, a new seasonal photography walk and conversation series. This exclusive series will explore the concept of light and photography within the Times Square, Garment District, and Bryant Park neighborhoods that intersect at LUMA Hotel. Grant will lead an engaging discussion on harnessing light as an inspirational tool in everyday photography.

Open to hotel guests and locals, the tour takes place during the magical “golden hour,” when the city transitions from afternoon to evening, offering a unique opportunity to photograph the city through a captivating light. Grant will lead the conversation around how light plays into photography, while attendees manipulate light to capture stunning photography of the surrounding skyscrapers, billboards, greenery & more. The walk will conclude in one of our suites overlooking the city, for a final photo-worthy moment from a unique vantage point.

Guests are encouraged to follow along on social media at @lumahoteltimessquare and @grantlegan as well as through the hashtag #ChasingLightAtLUMA.  

  • Fall Tour - October 15th 2019, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. Tickets are complimentary and are available on a first come first served basis
