Best Hotels for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is Manhattan’s biggest social event of November and signals the beginning of the Christmas Holiday season. But before we begin planning for the ‘C’ word, first things first.

If you think you want to catch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and other festivities this year, get your hotel booked now. If you’re already thinking about next year, pencil in a note on your calendar to call Magellan Luxury Hotels on November 25th; the hotels with view rooms and suites of the parade route sell out quickly and begin accepting reservations for 2017 the day after Thanksgiving 2016.

Magellan Luxury Hotels offers an interesting range of hotel and dining options that take advantage of our properties’ premier Manhattan locations. Here are five NYC hotels for enjoying the Thanksgiving festivities in luxury:

Trump International Hotel Central Park
The Trump Hotel Central Park offers three ways to enjoy front-row access to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade:
  1. The in-house Jean-Georges restaurant, a sophisticated New French eatery, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Central Park and Columbus Circle and is named for the inimitable Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Michelin-starred chef and entrepreneur. It will be open during the parade.

Call Jean-Georges at (212) 691-0030 to reserve a table.

Call Magellan Luxury Hotels to book your stay.

The Quin
There are two options for viewing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from inside the hotel:

  1. Enjoy the excitement from guest rooms located alongside Sixth Avenue. In-room dining is available so you may wish to enjoy the view in your pajamas. Rooms with a view may be requested, but are subject to availability.
  2. The onsite Wayfarer Restaurant, an American Grille serving fresh takes on classic dishes, offers Thanksgiving day tickets which include: an unrivalled view of the parade from inside the restaurant; access to a private, roped-off section directly outside on the street’s parade route; access for groups of all size and families with children; full brunch buffet; a brunch cocktail open bar.

Call (212) 691-0030 or email [email protected] to reserve tickets.

Mandarin Oriental New York
While all of the rooms with a parade view are sold out for 2016, non-view rooms and suites are still available. The Mandarin Oriental offers two other exceptional opportunities to experience the parade from within the hotel.

  1. The stunning Restaurant Asiate is on the 35th floor and offers an excellent view of the parade route. It will begin taking reservations one month in advance of Thanksgiving for breakfast/brunch that day.
  2. Also on the 35th floor, the ballroom features floor to ceiling windows and offers a bird’s eye view of the colorful array of floats, balloons and marching bands passing through Columbus Circle.  ALL hotel guests are invited to the ballroom, where complimentary coffee and tea will be served throughout the morning.

After September 24th, contact Restaurant Asiate directly at +1 (212) 805-8881 to reserve a table.

Call Magellan Luxury Hotels to book your stay.

Two hotels, Le Parker Meridien and the WestHouse Hotel New York, each a block off the parade route, do not offer rooms or dining options with views of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. However, they are luxury options in the heart of the action, a short walk through Central Park to the balloon inflation area on 77th and only a minute or two from the best parade viewing areas.

Le Parker Meridien
Le Parker Meridien balances historical design features with whimsical touches, creating an atmosphere as stimulating as its bustling Midtown location. Home to two of Manhattan’s favorite eateries, Norma’s and The Burger Joint, Le Parker Meridien has the means to satisfy. In addition to unique décor and culinary variety, guests will enjoy the indoor rooftop pool with amazing views of Central Park.

Extra special: It’s hard to top the pool and its view, but let’s try. This one is for the gentlemen. The lobby of Le Parker Meridien is home to Sharp’s Barber and Shop, offering old school services like straight razor shaves and haircuts in a new world, masculine setting. It offers comfort and the convenience of not having to leave the hotel. A surprise appointment at Sharp’s would make a great gift for the special man in your life.

Call Magellan Luxury Hotels to book your stay.

WestHouse Hotel New York
WestHouse Hotel New York was born from a passion: for Art Deco design, style, fashion, luxury and comfort. While the hotel tips the hat to the 1920s, there’s a decidedly modern theme throughout that promises first-rate amenities and services. The 172 guest rooms and suites (located on floors 19 through 25) will please even the most finicky of WestHouse’s “residents” (their term for guests) with a full range of comforts and tasty treats.

Extra special: The Den is the hotel’s bar, accessible only to hotel residents and their guests. It is old-world slightly Bohemian charm meets crisp modern. It’s intimate and private, making it a perfect retreat from the crowds.
