With over a million people expected to attend NYC's Pride on June 27 this year, there’s no doubt the city will once again experience an influx of visitors. If you're on your way to the Big Apple and you've yet to book accommodations, here are a few suggestions of places to keep your luggage while you party the night away in N.Y.C.
Kimpton's 70 Park Avenue hotel, located in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Midtown Manhattan, is offering the "Propose on Pride" package. Starting at $249 a night, the package includes deluxe accommodations, breakfast in bed, a rainbow flag, disposable camera and a map of the parade route and local hot spots.
The Muse, another Kimpton hotel, has no NYC Pride-specific deals, but you can still take advantage of Kimpton's "Summer of Pride" special, available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Another option for those visiting New York City this June – or any time before the end of September – is W Hotels "Pride 365" package. Perks include a one-year GLAAD membership, a one-year subscription to our fabulous sister publication Out magazine, and other goodies.. As if you need any further incentive, along with Out, you'll also receive the Out Traveler in your mailbox. Does it get any better than that?
Book at any of W Hotels' five N.Y.C. locations and don't forget to check out their float in the Pride Day March! Find even more information on the program in our interview with W Hotels President Ross Klein.
