“I am thrilled to announce the return of NYC Hotel Week, offering deals of a lifetime to an array of hotels across the City,” says New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “NYC Hotel Week kicks off the start of NYC & Company’s NYC Winter Outing Program, combining NYC Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week, NYC Must-See Week, and NYC Hotel Week. Whether you want to catch one of our world-class attractions, dine at the finest restaurants or unwind at our luxurious hotels, New York City has it all right here in our backyard, across all five boroughs. Our city is open for reservations, so book yours today!” adds Adams.
“NYC Hotel Week offers the best values of the year for travellers looking to visit the five boroughs or for New Yorkers treating themselves to staycations,” says Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company. “When combined with other offers in our broader NYC Winter Outing promotion—like NYC Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week and NYC Must-See Week—tremendous values are to be had on virtually every aspect of a visit to New York City in January and February, making the winter season incredibly attractive. Hotel reservations are available now, and we invite everyone to plan a visit or give the gift of a stay in NYC to a loved one this holiday season,” adds Dixon.
Hotel performance has held steady across New York City that continues to generate the highest weekly occupancy levels and average daily rates (ADR) among the top 25 markets, with the current demand recovering to around 90 pc of the 2019 benchmark each week. New York City has more than 124,000 hotel rooms in active inventory and another 11,000 rooms are expected to come online in the next three years.
The start of NYC Hotel Week reservations marks the countdown to the return of NYC Winter Outing, NYC & Company’s annual citywide value program. NYC Winter Outing, now in its fourth year, celebrates the City’s winter season with offers from NYC & Company’s signature programmes, notably NYC Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week, NYC Must-See Week, and for the second year, NYC Hotel Week. NYC Winter Outing, which will run from January 17 through February 12, 2023, will combine deals across all five boroughs on dining, Broadway shows, attractions, museums, tours, performing arts and hotels. Bookings for NYC Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week and NYC Must-See Week will open to the general public on January 10 on NYCGO website.
As part of NYC & Company’s partnership with Mastercard, Mastercard cardholders will have exclusive access to an early booking presale period for NYC Winter Outing programs including NYC Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week and NYC Must-See Week from January 4–9.
This year’s anticipated vibrant holiday season comes amid NYC’s continued tourism rebound, with 6.5 million people expected to visit between Thanksgiving and New Year’s alone. Overall, 56.4 million people are projected to visit NYC by the end of 2022, or roughly 85 pc of record 2019 tourism levels. The City remains on track to return to or surpass 2019 visitation totals by 2024, says the statement.
