New York, New York—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
They say if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, and the Waldorf Astoria New York, with its new Bloomingdale’s Shop ‘Til You Drop package, is giving guests the chance to not only make their holiday wish lists, but also check them twice. Located a few enchanting, NYC-at-Christmastime blocks from the array of top designers and fashion retailers lining Fifth Avenue, as well as one of the city’s most iconic department stores in Bloomingdale’s, the package offers guests VIP access to one of the country’s best shopping experience.
The Bloomingdale’s Shop ‘Til You Drop package begins where any good stay package should: in the room. In this case one of New York City’s most storied hotels’ Deluxe rooms, with accommodations for two. When it comes time to get that holiday shopping done, or perhaps simply spoil yourself (yep, that’s OK too), grab your $50 Bloomingdale’s Gift Card and 15% Bloomingdale’s Savings Certificate and head over to one of the world famous department store’s two chic locations (in Midtown East and SoHo) for a true retail pilgrimage. Upon departure don’t forget to claim your complimentary signature gift and arrange for on-the-house package delivery—from Bloomingdale’s to the Waldorf Astoria—on purchases of $250 or more.
The Waldorf Astoria makes unwinding after a long day of shopping an indulgent affair as well, with a trio of holiday-themed treatments at the Guerlain Spa designed to pamper you with the spirit of the season. The Peppermint Pedicure will, quite literally, sweep you off your feet with a warm foot soak of peppermint essential oils followed by a soothing scrub and moisturizing massage, while the La Petite Robe Noire combines a 50-minute Radiance facial, luxury manicure, makeup & fragrance application and a 50 ml bottle of La Petite Robe Noire Eau du Parfum in one holiday stress-melting antidote. For men anxiously awaiting the arrival of their Christmas bonuses, the Only Homme treatment erases any and all worry with an 80-minute customized sports or deep tissue massage and an 80ml bottle of Homme Eau de Parfum.
Of course we all know that the holidays are as much about good tidings and atmosphere as anything else, and the Waldorf Astoria offers a bounty of both. With the halls decked in fragrant trees, wreaths, hundreds of hand-blown glass ornaments and thousands of sparkling lights, shoppers are sure to enjoy the hotel’s legendary festive décor, encompassing the entire holiday grandeur gambit. On the season’s most festive occaisions, stop by Peacock Alley (located within the sumptuously decorated lobby), where the hotel will host joyous celebrations including a three-course Christmas Eve dinner and a Christmas Buffet. Boasting Manhattan’s sweetest display of culinary prowess with a jaw-dropping 24 dessert array, these events may just have you too full to move until the New Year’s Eve Gala, to be held in one of the hotel’s iconic grand ballrooms.
So for the best in the seasonal shopping, atmosphere and dining, reserve your spot on the Waldorf Astoria New York’s Holiday sleigh today.
