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.

New York is known for a lot of things. The place is always busy and adapts to changes that happens around it. Whether in the field of sports, entertainment and of course fashion, it just keeps on improving. One more industry that is growing is its lodging business.

The present recession greatly affected hotel industries in the US.  Based on the information provided by Travlezoo, the lodging business last 2008 went down on a depressing value and was still pulled down by approximately nine percent in 2009. This 2010, despite the US current situation, New York City hotels do not seem to be affected. In fact, more hotel rooms and structures with astounding designs and remarkable services are popping out in the Big Apple. These hotels seem to be everywhere. There’s in Chelsea, Nolita and lower Manhattan. According to Chris Heywood of NYC & Company, the city’s tourism authority, guests can still enjoy and explore the genuine New York City even if some of these new hotels are located in the not so popular enclaves.
