NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- No one knows how to celebrate quite like the City That Never Sleeps, and NYC's Gay Pride Week offers no exception to the rule. With parties, rallies and, of course, the legendary March all on the calendar, the only question for visitors is which hotel will put them in the center of all the action. The answer, it turns out, is among hotels near Chelsea: The Courtyard New York Manhattan/Chelsea combines an enviable location with a promotion that's easy on the pocketbook.
Guests staying at this hotel near Penn Station will find themselves close to a variety of attractions. Madison Square Garden is just steps away, and the Theater District, Times Square and Koreatown are all within walking distance.
Such a central location allows guests to take full advantage of Gay Pride Week's exciting events. Families will want to arrive early to attend Family Night's free viewing of "The Wizard of Oz" at Hudson River Park on June 24, 2014. A few days later on June 27, Pride Week officially gets underway with The Rally's performances and speakers. Parties for men and women get everyone in the spirit of things on June 28, just in time for the festive, over-the-top March on June 29. With more than 50 floats and countless groups parading down Fifth Avenue, the March is a spectator sport not to be missed.
For travelers looking to get in on the fun, the Courtyard offers a standout option among hotel deals near the Empire State Building. Designed to celebrate Gay Pride in general, the Out & About package includes overnight accommodations, a nightly bottle of champagne and a nightly in-room movie, all based on a consecutive-night stay. Breakfast for two at the stylish Table 135 is also included, with guests enjoying the option of a Continental meal or a hot breakfast. Guests should use the promotional code 4LG when booking to secure the package, which is available through December 31, 2014.
As one of the most value-driven hotels in New York's Fashion District, this property offers guests a variety of amenities that enhance their stay during Gay Pride Week and beyond. Visitors, for example, can stay connected with free Wi-Fi access throughout the property, while luxury bedding, mini-refrigerators and in-room coffee/tea service add a level of comfort that makes it easy to be on the road. And that's something the hotel can take pride in any time of year.
