The Taft Hotel building is a 22-story pre-war Spanish Renaissance structure that occupies the eastern side of Seventh Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets, just north of Times Square, in the Midtown Manhattan neighborhood of New York City and opened on November 15, 1926.
At the time, the 2,250-room Manger was the largest hotel in the Times Square area, and the third largest in Manhattan. The development cost more than $10 million, an enormous amount of money at the time.
The hotel was connected to the famous Roxy Theatre, a movie and stage show palace that opened a few months later, on March 11, 1927. The lobby of the Roxy was actually located in the 50th St and Seventh Avenue corner of the hotel structure. Madison Square Garden was a block to the west and drew thousands for major events.
