Steer Clear Of The Olympics 2012 And Go Stateside
With The Hotel @ Times Square
Make the most of a trip to New York this summer, the city that has so much more to offer than jam-packed, sporting frenzied London. Trial one of The Hotel @ Times Square’s super un-sporty packages and experience this exciting and eclectic city, while your fellow countrymen sit stuck to their TV’s.
The Hotel @ Times Square offers a non-sporty solace in the heart of the action and is around the corner from the Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Theater District, the Museum of Modern Art and Fifth Avenue shopping. What’s more, the budget-friendly Manhattan hotel promises that not one screen will be dedicated to the screening of the games. Choose from the following alternative packages:
SPRINT FROM SHOP TO SHOP
For those who would rather run from shop to shop than down a track, the Sprint package offers all the essentials to ensure a successful shopping trip. This includes a free VIP coupon book (offering savings of up to 65 per cent) at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, where shopaholics will find over 200 well-known stores, as well as directions and two bottles of water in order to keep hydrated. The Shop Package is available from US$244.99 per room per night (£78 per person)*.
PICK THE MUSEUM MILE NOT A MARATHON
Swap a marathon for the museum mile and receive two adult tickets to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the Museum Package. Located at the beginning of the famous New York Museum Mile and taking up one quarter of its length, this institution offers culture vultures the chance to appreciate over two million works of art. The Museum Package is available from US$259.99 per room per night (£83 per person)*.
DROP THE OPENING CEREMONY FOR REAL HISTORIC SHOWS
Drop the over-hyped Olympic Opening Ceremony for a chance to check out the haunts of many A-list rock ‘n’ roll stars with two free tickets to the Rock Around The Block Tour of Greenwich Village. Explore where Dylan, Hendrix and Blondie made history on this three-hour walking tour, hosted by Bob Sarlin, an ex-journalist and publicist for many of the greats from Michael Jackson to Bruce Springsteen. The Rock Package is available from US$291.99 per room per night (£93 per person)*.
*The Anti-Olympic packages are available on stays of a minimum of two nights in a queen size room (based on two sharing) from 27 July until 12 August. Flights and accommodation taxes are excluded.
Hotel facilities also include complimentary breakfast, free wi-fi and national phone calls, a fitness centre and bar. For more information visit www.thehotelattimessquare.com and to book call freephone 0808 178 6363, quoting Shop, Museum or Roc
