The holiday season is upon us as New York City transforms into a veritable winter wonderland. Celebrating the holidays in NYC is something everyone should experience at least once. With festive décor and a location in the center of the city’s best sights, The New York Palace is your perfect home for the holidays.
Just one block west – experience the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree - one of the most well-known holiday events in NYC. The exciting tradition marks the beginning of Christmas in NYC and encompasses all the magic of the holiday season. On Wednesday, December 3 at 7pm, visitors are invited to enjoy live performances in Rockefeller Plaza as holiday cheer envelopes the crowd and we begin the countdown to the lighting of the tree to mark the beginning of the holiday season. The experience becomes all the more magical if you indulge in a bit of ice skating at Rockefeller Center. Glide, twirl and spin your way around one of the world’s most famous rinks, nestled below the beautiful tree.
While you’re in Rockefeller Center, we recommend visiting the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Top of the Rock truly elevates your New York experience as you are whisked 70 stories up to a spectacular vantage point. Here the entire city is laid out before you with sweeping views of the New York City skyline and even the outer boroughs!
As the festive nature of the season takes hold, share your photos and trip highlights with family and friends. If you really want to make an impression, The New York Palace gift cards are the perfect gift for your friends and family to plan their very own adventure in one of New YorkCity’s finest hotels. This is one present that we guarantee will never be regifted.
