What is included in the package pricing?
Tickets for 4 Broadway shows, 3 nights of hotel (check-in on Thursday and check-out on Sunday), 2 breakfasts, 1 brunch, 3 dinners, and optional activities on Friday morning. The Sunday Stay-Over option includes tickets for the 5th Broadway show, 1 night of hotel (check-out on Monday), and 1 dinner. Please note that airfare and transportation costs are not included. See the TRANSPORATION section below for more information.
Will there be any free time?
Yes! On Friday, our first official event is dinner at 5PM. We will have some optional guided tours in the morning, but this is the time to choose your own journey, if you choose. We are happy to give you suggestions. Stay tuned!
Where are the hotels?
The Hotel Edison and W Hotel are adjacent to each other on West 47th St, between 7th Ave and 8th Ave, in the heart of Times Square. They are conveniently located within walking distance to all our theatres and restaurants.
Can we stay at another hotel?
Yes. See Package Pricing for the No Hotel Included option.
Can we extend our stay at the hotels?
Yes! We will make the arrangements for you. Just let us know the dates before final payment is due on April 10, 2020. Many of our patrons do come a day early, to settle in. Extra night cost is $340 at The Hotel Edison for a Signature Room and $550 at the W Hotel for a Fantastic Suite. Pricing for The W Hotel is subject to change based on room availability.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Regular check-in is at 3PM for Hotel Edison and at 4PM for W Hotel. Check-out is at 12PM for both hotels. We can request for early check-in or late check-out for you for both hotels but it is not guaranteed.
Is WiFi included?
Wireless internet access is included in your package pricing at Hotel Edison. W Hotel charges $14.95/day for wireless internet in guest rooms, though it is free in the lobby and public areas. The cost of the WiFi will be added to your incidental charges so you will pay for it at check-out.
Will I be able to earn Marriot Bonvoy points if I choose to stay at the W Hotel?
No, but the W Hotel will honor your status if you provide us your Marriot Bonvoy Rewards Number. If you’d like to earn points for your stay, you would need to choose the No Hotel Included option and book the hotel yourself.
Where would the seats be?
Regardless of which package pricing you choose, everyone will be seated in the center orchestra, guaranteed!
Can we swap one of the scheduled shows for a different one?
No. If you would like to see another show that is not in our itinerary, consider extending your stay and we will arrange for your tickets, if you like.
Will we be able to sit with the people we are traveling with?
Yes, we will try our best. Please make sure we know who is in your group.
Can you get us show tickets for our extra days?
Absolutely! Just let us know and we will work our magic. Our price is $300 per ticket.
Can we invite guests to a show?
Yes, we will do our best to accommodate that! Letting us know sooner rather than later, will help. Price is $300 per ticket.
Is there a dress code?
Our number one suggestion is to be comfortable! You will see a wide variety, in both theatres and restaurants (none of our restaurants require a jacket). Smart casual to smart dress works! It is important to be ready to walk a few blocks in unpredictable weather, so keep that in mind for both foot and protective wear.
I have a friend in NYC, can they come to dinner?
Absolutely! Please let us know in advance. The price for each guest is $150.
Are drinks included with meals?
We offer beer, wine, soft drinks and coffee at all dinners.
Is airfare included in the price of the trip?
Which is the best airport to use?
New York City is served by three airports: JFK, LGA and EWR. Pick what flight works best for you. There are direct flights from SJC to JFK on Alaska, Delta and JetBlue, and from SJC to EWR (Newark, NJ) on Alaska. SFO offers more options. Pay attention to arrival time. It can take more than 1 hour to get to your hotel from either of those 3 airports during rush hour. Our first event is the Welcome Cocktails on Thursday evening at 5:00PM and we don’t want you to miss it!
How do we get from the airport to the hotel?
There are a variety of options from public transportation to a NY taxi cab. Cost for a cab or Uber is in the $65 range (not including tip or tolls). Fares are regulated, and you will get a price before you accept. Plan for 45 minutes to 1 hour during non-rush hour and at least 1.5 hours during rush hour.
When departing, the hotels will get you a cab or you can call an Uber. Prices are similar.
PRO TIPS TO MAKE YOUR STAY EVEN BETTER!
Arrive a day early (Wednesday) to get settled in before our fun filled adventure begins. Let us know and we will arrange your extra nights and even help get you another show ticket.
Bring comfortable walking shoes. Even though we are staying in the heart of the action, our days are long and filled with activities. You will want to feel good going to your evening shows after a day of exploring.
The weather is always unpredictable in NYC. Plan on humidity, rain, and usually some very hot afternoons!
If you stop to take in the wonders of Times Square, keep in mind that the people dressed as TV and movie characters charge money for photographs. It’s fun to take picture with them, just be prepared to give them a few bucks.
