With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we are all over planning out a Macy’s Parade focused morning. For those that will either be visiting town or live here and are looking for a holiday staycation, I’ve pulled a few hotels that are located along the route of the parade. You’ll want to book ASAP as rooms fly here! I’ll be sharing the hotels with not only the best views, but that make for a fantastic stay, as well.
Here are my top hotel choices to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from!
Firstly, the Hilton is always a great stay! It’s a trustworthy hotel and being on 35th Street means big business on Thanksgiving morning. Since the parade ends on 34th street, these are prime views! Of course, you’ll have to request a room with a view with any of these hotels, if you want to be in on the action, this is where to stay! Just don’t have to leave the hotel until the afternoon, as things are quite busy outside.
The moment you enter their site, they are advertising their amazing views and let me just say, they are amazing every day of the year. I love that they have Prime Room Packages for 4 night stays since you’ll want to fly in earlier than the holiday. The hotel also offers Partial View Rooms for a birds eye view of the amazing balloons.
Located close to Central Park, you will have some of the most luxurious views! From your room or directly outside on Central Park South, front row seats for the parade are available–as long as you book on time or get a spot outside early. Book your stay and specify you want a parade view luxury suite!
Warwick is on W 54th Street and the views are some of the very best! Head right on over to their special offerings section and select the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade option to specify that you want parade views. The rooms go quickly, so it is important to book your room as soon as you can!
Another Hilton Hotel, but this one is located just steps from Carnegie Hall, a Central Park hotel is guaranteed phenomenal parade views. I recommend calling rather than booking online, but apart from the holiday, this is a central hotel you’ll want to stay at in NYC. Location is everything on your stay or staycation here!
Closer to the end of the route, this Times Square spot is a prime location! Their parade package is one of the best I’ve seen! Luma offers deluxe overnight accomodations, grab and go boxed breakfast for the parade, festive fall-themed welcome amenity, parade route map as well as a guide to watching the balloons get inflated the night before, Macy’s Savings Passes and dinner credit to AperiBar depending on your booking and the amount of days. Can you ask for a nicer concierge?! This is amazing!
The Mandarin offers a birds eye view of the parade with a required 3 night stay. They have a nice welcome amenity, as well and are located at Columbus Circle, steps from Central Park. Again, not only is this great for parade views, but you will want to stay here anyway, as it is a prime location.
Wrapping up with the final Hilton option of our roundup, this 53rd Street spot will put you in the heart of it all. One amazing thing to note is they have a Thanksgiving feast at Herb N’ Kitchen, a restaurant in their lobby, so you have holiday accommodations! With a series of fun activations and some of the best parade views in town, this is a top option for the day!
Finally, this is another Central Park hotel, which means you are guaranteed to be close to the balloons. This is a great place to stay and get outside to see it all in person. I recommend getting up earlier than you think and watch the parade on the streets and then take a nap before a Thanksgiving dinner in the city!
