Ultimate Luxury New Year's Eve Experience in Times Square at the New York Marriott Marquis

Over-the-Top New Year's Eve Package Includes a Glamorous Stay in a Presidential Suite and Front Row Seats to the Ball Drop at Gala Party in Broadway Lounge

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2014) - It's the most iconic location in the world to celebrate New Year's Eve -- Times Square in New York City, where the famous ball drop has taken place for over 100 years to herald in the new year. This year the New York Marriott Marquis makes it even more exciting.

Guests who book the Ultimate Luxury New Year's Eve package will arrive via private limousine to the sounds of a baby grand piano in a sumptuous presidential suite as they get ready to usher in the new year. Their private attendant will greet them with Piper Heidsieck champagne and the chef's selection of festive hors d'oeuvres as they explore this spacious two-bedroom suite, decorated in celebratory style. Then it's time to primp with a personal stylist from PRIMP Salon & Spa Services for the gala party below in Broadway Lounge, where they'll be seated in the prime ball drop-view seats, overlooking the thousands of people gathered for the big countdown at midnight. And, as a warm-up to the countdown, earlier in the evening they'll enjoy a surprise visit outdoors to Times Square, surrounded by the crowds. In Broadway Lounge, they'll enjoy a full evening of entertainment, special buffet dinner menus, premium bars and dancing, as midnight approaches. Then it's countdown time, when the air is filled with a storm of confetti throughout Times Square, as the famous Waterford crystal ball descends. The new year starts off in the morning with breakfast at Crossroads; the perfect ending to the celebration and the perfect beginning to 2015.

Not keen on the idea of being outside in the cold weather in Times Square with family or friends for the countdown to midnight? For the first time ever, the New York Marriott Marquis will sell "Ball Drop View to New Year's Eve in Times Square" guest rooms on marriott.com. Guests can pass up the outdoor experience, staying cozy inside, in their comfortably appointed guest room to watch the festivities, without having to bundle up. This is a 3-night stay with arrival on December 29 or December 30. The entire 3-night stay is just under $6,000 and is inclusive of tax ($5,745.70 total).
