Nothing says New York better like experiencing a Broadway show. Whether you have tickets in advance, plan on buying them at the TKTS stand the day of, or are looking to enter yourself into the daily raffle, make sure you are staying at a hotel nearby! You never know who you are going to see starring in the show! Nick Jonas fresh off of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying? Or Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City take her acting skills to drama in Wit. (But if you’d rather remember her as Miranda, try this the next time you’re in London!) Whatever show you go to, make sure that when it’s over, you have a hotel that caters to the aftermath. Going to see a Broadway show is an experience, so while you’re at it treat yourself to the finest hotels in the district in order to make your stay as memorable as it can be!
Topping almost all luxury five star hotel lists, the Trump Tower Hotel is located just a brisk 15 minute walk from the theater district, with the option of passing the MOMA and the Rockefeller center along the way. As the hotel’s motto states “Live the Life” and book to get a room on one of the higher up of the 52 floors for exquisite views of the city. Most notably are the quantity of luxury suites as well as the spa packages, and of course the 55 foot long heated pool. If for nothing else, witness what the man who has coined the phrase “You’re fired” has done with his 30 million dollar renovations.
Even closer to the theatre district is the Bryant Park Hotel. Although Bryant Park is normally associated with New York fashion week, it’s only three-four blocks away from some of the most talked about shows. The New Amsterdam Theater, currently showing Mary Poppins, and Foxwood’s theater, currently showing Broadways most talked about musical, Spiderman Turn off the Dark, are right next door. What the hotel can boast about most is being fashionable, romantic, and one of the best cosmopolitan experiences the city has to offer.
Sitting right on Broadway, the W is perched right next to one of the City’s most enjoyable shows. Walk next door and you’re at the Gershwin seeing Wicked. What the W has to offer is one of the more relaxing feels of any New York hotel. Have a drink at the Oasis bar and feel like you too are Defying Gravity. Boasting a 10,000 square foot spa, named Bliss, and impeccable fung-shui there couldn’t be a more extravagant and relaxing place to pamper yourself before being whisked away to Broadway for the night.
The Chatwal is located in the heart of the theater district and within walking distance to every theater and closest is the family favorite, the Lion King and the Minskoff Theater. Inspired by old-Manhattan romance and art deco, this hotel will whisk you back to the 1930s in not only its nostalgic feel, but in inspiration as well. One of the most unique experiences The Chatwal has to offer is a personal consultation with a Krigler perfume expert. Make your own scent before getting dressed up for the night. It’s those personal touches that have made the Chatwal be praised for personalized experiences.
