Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's famous Juventus and Portuguese soccer superstar has launched his latest hotel complex in New York City, specifically at Times Square.
Christiano took to social media on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, to reveal the Pestana CR7 Times Square City Center Hotel in midtown Manhattan, his very first CR7 hotel outside of Europe.
Before, the famous 36-year-old had been expanding his hotel portfolio to include two hotels in Portugal and one in Madrid. He also has plans to open a luxury hotel in Manchester near Piccadilly Gardens in 2023.
You can see the tweet below for more information:
As you can see, he chose the date of July 7 to introduce and promote his hotel to the world, a so-called lucky number.
One can certainly book a stay at the hotel, especially if you're curious. It doesn't matter if you're a local or a tourist, there seems to something for everyone.
According to the hotel's official website, people can stay at the hotel for $91 a night, which is a discount from the usual $171 per night price listing. It is unclear as to how long this discount may last.
As the hotel's official website further states, the Pestana CR7 Times Square City Center Hotel is a cosmopolitan hotel that is vibrant, sophisticated and caters to those with a sporty lifestyle. For example, this includes people who enjoy watching sports and/or those who are pretty athletic too.
Combining friendliness, comfort, and state-of-the-art technology, both tourists and locals can certainly thrive and enjoy many of the international dishes there.
They can also enjoy some hearty drinks, and engorge themselves on delicious signature Portuguese snacks, while watching sports on multiple HD-TV screens.
Given that Christiano is Portuguese, the guest rooms are influenced by the art and colors of Portugal. Each room is also equipped with Espresso makers, USB ports, fridges, and reliable Wi-Fi.
There's also a Fitness Center if you're worried about keeping in shape.
Alternatively, if you're just a business person looking for a little variety and spice to your life, you can't really go wrong here, since they have normal business event rooms too.
Some of the pros of staying at the hotel include:
- Enjoying the novelty of a newly built hotel
- Being in a prime and central spot, just minutes away from many New York City attractions
- Having lots of healthy and creative food and drinks (including international cuisine)
- An opportunity to watch lots of great sports and mingle with others who also love sports
- An excuse to exercise outside of the home
If you're not from New York, Penn Station is only a few blocks away, which is connected to the Newark Airport in New Jersey.
The JFK Airport is also 15 miles away.
If someone is new to New York City, it might be a good starting point since the place is so close to other famous places like:
- Central Park
- The Empire State Building

- Jacob Javits Convention Center
- The United Nations Building
Plus, it might reinvigorate tourism to those places closest to the hotel.
For now, though, the people of America, and the people of New York City may be curious and want to visit the Pestana CR7 Times Square City Center Hotel someday. I mean, it's owned by Cristiano Ronaldo and his superfans may book spots quickly (especially with the current discount). Tourism may boom even. Hopefully, there's something for everyone.
