There’s nothing like watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person, rather than on tv. But instead of standing in the cold on a sidewalk, you can be warm and toasty inside the new Marriott Residence Inn Times Square, and enjoy a sweeping view of the balloons and floats. The hotel is offering special three-night and four-night Thanksgiving Parade packages of rooms and a Thanksgiving day brunch during the parade. I checked out the hotel rooms with a view of the parade route, as well as the second floor dining room that overlooks Sixth Avenue. The view is memorable.
Keep the Mariott Residence Inn Times Square in mind for other NYC visits. The location is excellent — one block from Bryant Park. And the room rate includes a qourmet quality buffet breakfast.
