The Perfect Hotel To Warm Up In After Freezing While Seeing The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

I have hotels in Manhattan I like to stay in when we’re going to see shows. A different hotel might be better when I’m going to see the premiere of MST3K at a movie theater near Lincoln Center. There’s even a great hotel when we’re in New York to sing at Carnegie Hall. This trip called for something different and totally foreign to me; I needed a hotel that would be good for seeing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

Fortunately, we planned this trip way in advance. I was able to do my research and found the best hotel for our needs and our price range. I would have loved if I could afford to stay at one of the hotels where you can see the parade from your room but I wasn’t willing to pay several thousand dollars for a package (as the places with the good locations know they’re desirable and charge accordingly). The hotel I picked was available to book with points so it was really the perfect place to stay.

The General Public Can Only Enter This Place Once A Year, For Just One Hour, And The Time Is Almost Here

Many people seem to enjoy the excitement in going into places where they’re generally or usually not allowed to go. They may be abandoned sites, like Discovery Island and River County at Walt Disney World. Maybe it’s the old City Hall station of the NYC subway system.  Perhaps it’s “forbidden” countries like Cuba (we went to Cuba for my last birthday that “ended with a zero” simply “because I could.” Granted, at the time we could go there legally and relatively easily, but it was right after 50+ years of not being able to).

So when I discovered that Gramercy Park in NYC is locked up tight and closed to the public almost all the time, but is open for just one hour, just one night a year, it got me very interested.

Why do they open it once a year?

All About Broadway’s Rewards Program

Did you know there’s a rewards program for Broadway? One of Sharon and my favorite trips is going to New York to see Broadway shows. We have our favorites, like Hamilton, The Book of Mormon and Avenue Q, but we also try to see some new shows as much as possible. While we love seeing any productions, I also make sure we earn points every time we go to the theater.

Audience Rewards is a loyalty program for Broadway. When you buy tickets for most Broadway shows, you just need to include your Audience Rewards number on the reservation and you’ll receive your points after you’ve seen the show. You can enroll in the program for free at the Audience Rewards website.
