As the festive season rolls around once again, the world’s most luxurious hotels are pulling out all the stops to make it a Christmas to remember. Lotte New York Palace is vying to be crowned the most extravagant of all, with its $100,000 holiday package – the proceeds of which go directly to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation.
What can you expect from the indulgent package? Guests will be treated to three nights in the hotel’s most exclusive accommodation: the Champagne Penthouse Suite. Spanning three floors and 5,000 sq ft, the opulent abode features a private in-suite elevator, polished marble foyer, and expansive rooftop terrace overlooking St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Ideal for entertaining over the holiday season, the suite is also home to a regal living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a formal dining room with space to host 10 guests, and a fully stocked wine cave, library and tasting room.
During your four-day stay, you’ll be given four tickets for the annual Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting (this year its an 80-year-old Norway Spruce weighing in at 12 tons), plus a VIP experience with ice skating and photos with Santa.
The Lotte New York Palace Holiday Package also includes a private toy soldier tour at the FAO Schwarz flagship store before opening, and a personal shopping experience at Saks Fifth Avenue complete with a $1,500 gift card, dinner for four at L’Avenue, a tour of the store’s twinkling holiday windows and a VIP tour of the Jewelry Vault (an entire floor dedicated to high jewelry and watches).
Perhaps most exciting of all is the private in-suite performance by legendary performer Steve Cohen – the ‘millionaire’s magician’. Finally, guests will be treated to a chef’s tasting for four at Jupiter restaurant in the Rockefeller Center, a behind-the-scenes tour of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and tickets for four to a 2024 New York Yankees home game (with the opportunity to meet Yankees’ first baseman Anthony Rizzo and watch Yankees batting practice).
In their efforts to spread a little festive cheer this holiday season, all proceeds from Lotte New York’s holiday package will be donated to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation – a non-profit founded by the baseman to support children battling cancer.
