For many, the thought of celebrating New Year’s Eve in Times Square is exciting… however, being in the crowd is not worth all the hype. Guests are able to enjoy the feel of Times Square while ringing in the new year in a much more sophisticated way at The New York Marriott Marquis, which is offering three memorable ways to ring in the New Year. Choose from an over-the-top luxury package, tickets to their black-tie gala or rooms with a view of the ball drop! The View allows you to celebrate while being 48 floors above the chaos of Times Square that includes an elaborate 5-course dinner. The Broadway Lounge provides an amazing night with live entertainment, delicious cuisine, and a fully staffed premium open bar option. The third option is to simply get your own room with a view and enjoy the final hours of 2015 in private.
