Lotte New York Palace, situated in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, is offering an extravagant holiday package called “The Palace’s Ultimate Holiday,” which promises to provide guests with the ultimate New York City holiday experience. The package comes with a hefty price tag of $100,000, but for a good cause – 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. This charitable collaboration between the luxury hotel and the foundation aims to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for guests while supporting a meaningful cause.
The centerpiece of the package is a three-night stay in the hotel’s opulent Champagne Suite, a three-story, 5,000-square-foot living space that epitomizes luxury and extravagance. The suite offers breathtaking views of the city and is adorned with lavish furnishings and amenities, ensuring an unforgettable stay for the guests.
In addition to the luxurious accommodations, the package includes exclusive experiences at some of New York City’s most iconic attractions. Guests will receive four tickets to the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting, providing them with a front-row seat to one of the city’s most beloved holiday traditions. Furthermore, guests will have the opportunity to take a private “Toy Soldier Tour” of the FAO Schwarz flagship store before it opens to the public, complete with personal shopping and complimentary merchandise.
Entertainment is also a key component of the package, with a private in-suite performance by Steve Cohen, known as the Millionaire’s Magician, adding an element of wonder and enchantment to the experience. Additionally, guests will enjoy a personal shopping experience at Saks Fifth Avenue, including a $1,500 gift card, dinner for four at L’Avenue, a tour of the famous holiday windows, and a VIP tour of the Jewelry Vault.
The experience continues with a sunrise VIP visit to the Top of the Rock, followed by breakfast at the Private Dining Club, providing guests with an unrivaled view of the city at its most magical hour. A chef’s tasting for four at Jupiter restaurant in Rockefeller Center and a private behind-the-scenes tour of St. Patrick’s Cathedral further enhance the grandeur of the package.
For a touch of holiday nostalgia, guests will also enjoy a VIP experience in Rockefeller Center, including skating and photos with Santa. Additionally, the package includes tickets for four to a 2024 New York Yankees home game, offering the opportunity to meet first baseman Anthony Rizzo and watch batting practice, as well as autographed memorabilia from the baseball star himself.
The package is available for a limited time, from November 28 to December 1, 2023, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the festive spirit of the holiday season in New York City.
