What is included in the package pricing?
The basic package pricing includes tickets for 4 Broadway shows, 2 breakfasts, 1 brunch, 3 dinners, and optional activities on Friday morning.
Hotel Add-ons for 3 nights of accommodation, checking in on Thursday and checking out on Sunday.
The Sunday Stay-Over option includes tickets for the 5th Broadway show and 1 dinner. You can choose to add-on Sunday night’s hotel (check out on Monday) or take a red-eye flight back.
Please note that airfare and transportation costs are not included in any of the pricing listed above. See the TRANSPORTATION 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. Hotels are now add-ons so if you would like to stay at another hotel, you’ll only need to pay the $2500 package price per person, and an additional $375 per person if you choose to add a Sunday matinee and dinner.
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 18, 2022. Many of our patrons do come a day early, to settle in. Extra night cost for single occupancy is $280 at The Hotel Edison for a Signature Room 1 King or $315 for a 2 Queen, and $500 at the W Hotel for a Fantastic Suite. For double occupancy, extra night costs per person is $140 at The Hotel Edison for a Signature Room 1 King or $157.50 for a 2 Queen, and $250 at the W Hotel for a Fantastic Suite.
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?
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 for THE MUSIC MAN, SIX, PLAZA SUITE and FUNNY GIRL. MR. SATURDAY NIGHT and COMPANY will be $400 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. If you’re looking for non-stop flights, only JetBlue has limited non-stop service from SJC to JFK as of January 27, 2022. 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 ride-share service such as Uber or Lyft 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 or Lyft. Prices are similar.
