Welcoming the coming New Year at the Times Square in New York is an awesome experience.  You see the big ball drop. Hear all the cheering and see all the glitter. But with a Time Square New Year comes some sacrifices like staying outside in a very cold weather, no bathroom access for several hours, and a long walk to wherever you are staying in New York after the clock hits 12.

Now, one great alternative is to enjoy the New Year from the comfort of a hotel room at Times Square in New York.

Gilt City is pushing for a New York New Year package at the Renaissance Times Square for $2,500 in total for 3 nights. It comes with a lot of perks for those who want to spend for the holidays. You will get two tickets for The Living Room that features an open bar, gourmet food, access to NY Times Square, and the 3-night stay plus breakfast.
