Event Coincides With Other Festival Weeks
New York has launched its first-ever hotel week, beginning Tuesday, January 4th.
The event offers guests in over 100 hotels across the five boroughs 22% off their bookings through February 14th.
No, that’s not a typo. Hotel week lasts a month! And it might just be the best month to visit New York.
The event has been brought in to help bolster traditionally lackluster January numbers for the Big Apple. The city thrives in November and December as millions of tourists from across the world arrive to take in its Christmas atmosphere.
The 22% is an obvious nod to the new year and there’s hope that the discounted room rates will bring some extra crowds to the city.
In a smart move, Hotel Week (month) runs concurrently with three other New York staples, adding some more incentive for tourists.
New York Restaurant Week runs from January 18th through February 13th. The festival includes over 350 restaurants and offers an incredible chance to try some world-class New York restaurants at seriously discounted prices. Many of the restaurants run set menus at different price points, allowing any budget to get involved in the food scene.
Participating restaurants will be announced in the next week or so on the official website along with menus and other discount options.
New York Broadway Week also runs from January 18th and February 13th. Select broadway shows will offer 2-for-1 tickets – an absolute steal if you’ve ever paid for a full-price ticket. In a similar fashion, participating shows will be announced on the website.
It doesn’t stop there. Running alongside the others is NYC Must-See week. The Must-See week offers visitors and locals alike 2-for-1 tickets to many of the city’s top attractions. Make sure to check the list to make sure you see everything you want to see at an amazing price. Think One World Observatory, Yankee stadium tours, the Empire State Building, Hudson Ferry tours, and half off at many of the best museums in the world.
The whole month offers an astounding amount of value for a New York visitor, especially those who may’ve avoided it in the past due to financial concerns.
The hotels taking part can be booked here.
There’s a property listed for just about everyone. Big brand names like Hilton and Marriott have plenty of their staples listed, like the DoubleTree Times Square West, and Courtyard by Marriott Midtown.
Others are sleek independent hotels like the Ace Hotel Brooklyn. And luxury boutique properties like the Walker Hotel Greenwich.
It should be mentioned that New York currently has some of the strictest COVID rules in the US.
As of December 10th, masks must be worn indoors at all times unless a venue implements a vaccine requirement. Visitors and locals must also show proof of vaccination before participating in any indoor activity. This includes restaurants, theaters, botanic gardens, arenas, gyms, and bars.
The mandate also requires children between the ages of 5 and 11 to show proof of one vaccination dose. After January 27th, children in this age bracket must show two doses or full vaccination status.
Broadway shows are requiring proof of vaccination to attend any of their shows.
Visitors should also be aware that the current issues surrounding Omicron may leave some events or attractions canceled or closed.
