While the upcoming holiday travel season will begin to wind down after New Year's Day, hotel deals in New York will be heating up. That's because the fifth annual Hotel Week NYC is scheduled to run from January 3-15, 2016.
The nearly two-week-long event offers visitors to the Big Apple the opportunity to book world-class accommodations at a fraction of typical rates.
Guests who book directly with participating hotels for travel on the aforementioned dates after the holiday season and mention Hotel Week can save hundreds on their stay.
"Hotel Week NYC is beneficial for both hotels and travelers," Hotel Week NYC founder Nancy J. Friedman said in a statement. "Guests are able to experience New York City's finest hotels at a cost-efficient rate, and the properties are able to book unoccupied rooms while expanding their clientele."
With more than a dozen properties participating in Hotel Week NYC in 2016, here's your guide to some of the top offers.
This boutique hotel is designed to meet the needs of every type of traveler. Plus, it boasts two on-site restaurants, Saju Bistro and a gastropub called the Long Room.
An ideal stay for business travelers, Times Square's Econo Lodge may not be as fancy as some of the other participating hotels, but there's no shortage of amenities available at this property. Plus, with a reduced rate of $100 per night, an extended stay won't break the bank.
Sanctuary Hotel NYC
This award-winning boutique hotel exudes luxury and is ideally located in Times Square. Rainfall shower fixtures and a Bluetooth-enabled iHome stereo system will make it easy to relieve that unwanted holiday stress.
Arguably the top hotel in NYC, the Library is a boutique hotel beloved by readers and non-readers alike. The rooms are packed with all the amenities guests have come to expect these days but with a few extras, including an in-room safe and a writing desk.
And the Wi-Fi isn't the only thing that comes complimentary at the Library. Guests staying here will have free access to a continental breakfast every day as well as wine and cheese in the evening hours.
Another Library Hotel Collection property, Central Park's Hotel Elysee has many of the exciting perks offered by the Library Hotel. But unlike the Library, this hotel was inspired by the acclaimed French restaurant of the same name.
Gansevoort Park Avenue
If you're searching for a hotel sporting a "downtown edge with an uptown sensibility," Gansevoort Park Avenue is the place. Unwind at the rooftop bar and lounge or hit up the gym and spa to recharge your batteries after a draining holiday season.
Hotel Giraffe is the third Library Hotel Collection property participating in next year's Hotel Week NYC. Inspired by the giraffe, the luxury hotel shares many similarities with the Library Hotel and Hotel Elysee. However guests may notice a more urban feel here.
Gansevoort Meatpacking is the first luxury, full service resort in Manhattan's historic Meatpacking District. This property is perfect for those traveling with babies or children. On top of cribs and disposable diapers, PSPs and Nintendo Wiis are complimentary.
In addition to boasting an ideal location, the Maritime features a 24-hour fitness center and business center. The hotel's 126 guestrooms have a nautical theme throughout, but suites are also available for guests desiring more eye-popping views of NYC.
Keep in mind the Refinery Hotel New York ($200), The Ludlow ($200), The Marlton ($200), The Paul Hotel ($200), Wolcott Hotel ($100), Cosmopolitan Hotel ($100) and Pod 39 Hotel ($100) are also participating in next year's Hotel Week NYC.
