Upmarket Manhattan hotel offers novel ‘stay and play’ package

New York City’s upmarket Chatwal Hotel, located near the city’s famed Theatre District, has drawn upon its history of being immersed in the glitz and glamour of New York’s theatre productions to create a one-of-a-kind package for lovers of the theater and appreciators of the Golden Age of Broadway era.

The luxury boutique hotel has partnered with the new Broadway musical production, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812, to offer guests a “stay and play” experience that includes a stay in one of the hotel’s a Junior Suites or higher, a gourmet pre-theatre dining experience for two at The Chatwal’s iconic Lambs Club Restaurant and Bar by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, and two premium experience tickets to the musical. A Playbill, exclusively signed by the cast of the production, is also included as a VIP welcome gift.

Debuting at The Imperial Theatre, The Great Comet showcases creator Dave Malloy’s inspired adaptation of a 70-page slice of Leo Tolstoy’s opus, “War and Peace.” The play features Josh Groban as Pierre and Denée Benton as Natasha.

More than merely a play, The Great Comet is a unique theatrical experience that has been hailed as “brilliantly unconventional.” The production’s creative team has reimagined the Imperial Theatre as an opulent Russian salon and created an environment where every seat provides a unique perspective, putting the audience just inches away from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in an epic tale of romance and passion, according to promoters.

Located on West 44th Street, The Chatwal is just steps away from The Imperial Theatre as well as other outlets offering some of the best entertainment, dining and shopping in New York City. Rates for The Great Comet package begin at $1,545 per night based on two guests. The offer is valid for stays through Sept. 4.

The Chatwal, a Luxury Collection Hotel, bridges classic and contemporary design and feel. Originally built in 1905 by Stanford White, the property was restored and renewed by master architect Thierry Despont, and was re-launched in 2010 with 76 rooms and suites, several of which feature spacious terraces that are reputedly among the largest among New York City hotels.

Carefully selected amenities, professional butler service and bespoke service make it an excellent choice for both leisure and business travelers. The hotel, which is home to the Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden as well as the previously mentioned Lambs Club Restaurant, was recently recognized in Travel + Leisure’s 2016 World’s Best Awards in the Top 10 Hotels of New York and also recently included in Andrew Harper’s handpicked collection of finest properties in New York.

More information is available on the hotel’s website.
