Need Tix for the Tribeca Film Festival? Book a Room at the Gem Chelsea
The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off next week and while we've found several hotels with availability and reasonable rates, including these three, getting tickets is a different story.
Single tickets and discounted packages are currently on sale for Amex cardholders. This weekend more tickets will open up to downtown NYC residents while more tickets will be released on April 18 to the general public.
Fortunately, the tickets aren't crazy expensive. They start at $8 for matinees and $16 for evenings and weekend screenings. But the add-on charges are silly. For example, it's $3 to order online and $3 to print at home. You could save all that hassle by staying at The GEM Chelsea.
The hotel tells us that they will have a limited number of complimentary tickets available for guests at the front desk. Rates start at $361 a night for one of the hotel's comfy but small guestrooms with free WiFi.
However, the hotel is asking for a minimum stay of five nights during the first half of the festival. Rates then slide back down to about $279 a night on April 26.
