We Know a Secret Way to Get Hamilton Tickets
Six staycations that come with some serious perks
Why go to the Hamps when you could go to Hamilton?
That’s right, gents, we’ve got a backdoor booking offer that will get you and a date prime seats.
Plus: five other staycations that come with big pluses, from a bike ride with Shinola to in-house jazz and a trip to the Whitney.
That’s the beauty of New York. We never have to leave, ‘cause we got it all.
W Times Square Goes Ham
With the Broadway Lovers Dream package, lucky guests with be gifted with two tickets to the play no one will shut up about. On select Saturdays, you can book a Fantastic Hotel Suite and it comes with two killer seats to one of the biggest Broadway hits of the last decade. Carve out some space on the credit card, though. It’ll set you back $3,109.
Finally a hotel got the checkout time thing right. With W Union Square’s Lazy Sunday package, feel free to shimmy until the lights come up, because you don’t have to check out until 5 P.M. Inspired by the SNL anthem on everyone’s favorite day of leisure, Magnolia Bakery got in on the fun by creating the “LMA” (leave me alone) cupcake, available exclusively to guests who book this affair. Other perks include comfy socks from Stance, a morning cup of joe at the ready, Sunday’s newspaper and a massage from Red Door Spa.
Summer Friday Rides
In celebration of National Bike Month, the High Line Hotel has launched the Summer Friday Ride series with Shinola. The Detroit-based brand will provide good lookin’ wheels for taking a spin through Chelsea and Hudson River Park ending at the hotel’s new Alta Linea restaurant for après-cycling cocktails and bites.
Here Art Thou
Haven’t hit the Whitney? Here’s your chance. As a welcome to the neighborhood, booking at the Standard High Line will land you two tickets to take in some culture for the day. Plus a complimentary copy of The Handbook, a take-home guide to the museum’s permanent collection.
The perfect reason not to leave your room at all. The Roxy’s Weekender Package hooks you up with a $50 tab toward your stay. You’ll be reserving a table in the Roxy Bar & Lounge under an eight-story atrium for some classic American fare. After, you can jaunt down to the happening Django Bar Jazz Club in the cellar. Strong cocktails. Smooth tunes. It’s lively but dimly lit, for maximum whatever-you-have-in-mind.
Peas in a Pod
Pod 39 is the go-to for a booking. It’s stylish, a place to be seen and easy on the wallet. Plus, tacos. Salvation Taco is on-site from Michelin-starred Chef April Bloomfield. The cantina spans international influence with Pozole Kimchi and Braised Short Rib, Tamarind Pork and Korean BBQ tacos. But the real kicker is a top-notch concierge service that books you complimentary activities. That means free. Want to go see the live taping of the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore? Booked. Coney Island? Booked. A bike ride through Central Park? You get the idea. And after a day out, you can head up to one of the city’s most coveted rooftop lounges. And they’ve got you covered with rainy-day activities in the Play Room: ping pong, foosball and Battleship.
