Algonquin Hotel Deal Includes Broadway Shows
New York's Algonquin Hotel (home to the legendary Round table, which included literary and celebrity luminaries Robert Benchley, Edna Ferber, Dorothy Parker, and Groucho Marx), is offering its guests another chance to bathe in the warm glow of Gotham culture.
The landmark hotel is rolling out Broadway Magic: Guests staying two nights will have 10% knocked off their room prices, and will receive free tickets to either Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Les Misérables or Rent. The offer is valid right through New Year's Eve, 2008.
This is not a bad deal, if you can swing the price -- $539 per person, double occupancy. W. 44th Street is a great place to hotel bar-hop, and the Algonquin is walking distance to The Great White Way.
There are a few caveats here -- the special is subject to availability, so book now. The fee doesn't include any extras, like a day-pass MetroCard, or free breakfast. (The deal does include hotel amenities, which means a gratis copy of The New Yorker, and free use of an iPod).
We're also not sure if you get to pick your choice of seats in the theatre, or if they're picked for you. And if you're not a big fan of musicals, you're out of luck.
Rent, while its run was recently extended, is set to have its last performance on September 7. Time is of the essence if that's your pick.
