Wanna Skip The Lines At Trump Wollman Skating Rink? Stay At the Trump
We showed you yesterday how to click your way to an upgraded room view at Trump Soho. Now, here's a way to parlay your stay at Trump New York into a VIP ice skating session at the nearby Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park.
Guests of the hotel who call ahead will get whisked straight to the skate rental counter upon arrival, bypassing endless lines of whiny children, oblivious tourists and uninformed New Yorkers (we can say that because, as New Yorkers, we try to aim for more, um...time-efficient places to go ice skating). This makes a lot of sense to us. As long as it's in their power, why shouldn't Trump New York try to make things easier for parents attempting a family outing in below-freezing temperatures?
What's that, you say? You want the hotel to throw in free skate rentals too? Now, let's not get greedy...
Couples who are staying at the hotel can also snag a private hour on the rink after closing time. For $1,599 (OK, so it doesn't come cheap, but when was the last time you had an entire ice skating rink in Central Park to yourself?), you'll get skate rentals, an hour on the rink, and the Love Story soundtrack. Which, with any luck, they'll play overhead on the speakers to serenade your wintry, after-hours romance.
When you return, the hotel will also throw in two Jean Georges hot chocolates. If he hasn't proposed at that point, consider the entire hotel trip a deal-breaker.
