Go Big or Go Home in New York City

The title “trip of a lifetime” is thrown around easily these days, but if you are aiming to make that a reality, then you can’t go wrong with a dose of pure luxury in the Big Apple. There are few places that do extravagance as well as New York City, and with a little extra help to your wallet using your Expedia Rewards Points, you can pamper yourself and live the high life, if only for a few days.

Pamper yourself by doing it up in big style:

Score the luxury suite

A ball game at Yankee Stadium is an iconic NYC tradition, why not view the game in comfort and style? You’ll receive the royal treatment in your private facilities that can host up to 22 people, with state-of-the-art technology, and an impressive menu to dine in with.

Shop ’til you drop

Nothing says NYC luxury more than shopping on the celebrated Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. While the area does include some popular, affordable stores, Fifth Avenue also boasts some of the most upscale brands in the world: Versace, Gucci, Harry Winston, Tiffany & Co., Fendi, Louis Vuitton and of course, the iconic Saks Fifth Avenue.

Stay in the middle of it all

Langham Place Hotel is also located in Midtown Manhattan and is a wonderful complement to your opulent shopping experience. The hotel boasts 57 stories and gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline. It’s a short walk to another icon of NYC (Grand Central Station) or if you prefer to relax and have a spa retreat, it’s the place to be. The Michelin-starred Ai Fiori restaurant located in the hotel boasts cuisine from the Italian and French Riviera and echoes the chic, modern aesthetic of the hotel.

Take it all in

Times Square is for tourists and a trip to NYC isn’t complete unless you’ve taken in a Broadway show. Some of the world’s most popular musicals are still going strong after many years; some of these include Wicked, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera and The Lion King. Or, perhaps you would like to experience award-winning new shows like Kinky Boots, Matilda, Aladdin, or A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

Sleep and spa

In order to take in as much of Broadway as you can, a stay at The Chatwal Hotel guarantees that you’re at the centre of all of the action. The building is rich in history, opening in 1905 as a house for New York’s first professional theatre institution. This tribute to the past is still visible in its restored, classic ambiance. The restaurant (The Lamb’s Club) was named after that first tenant and features classic American bar and grill food from Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. While the affluent atmosphere may be a little tamer than Langham Place, The Chatwal is no stranger to luxury. The hotel includes a 2,400 square foot spa called The Red Door and is known for its signature facial treatments.

The Big Apple provides ample excuses for you to go big before you go home and with the Expedia+ Rewards Program this fantasy can become a reality.
