It comes as no surprise that a five-star experience in Midtown Manhattan on New Year's Eve isn't cheap. But you'll need to have some serious disposable income lying around or absolutely clean up this Christmas in order to book Hotel 48LEX's Penthouse Floor Buyout Package.
That's because the special New Year's Eve package costs $15,000.
Lucky guests able to foot the bill will receive the hotel's luxurious Penthouse Level to themselves on New Year's, with up to four guests gaining access to their very own penthouse suites, the Lexington and Avenue, for two nights (Dec. 31 and Jan. 1).
It only gets better from there, though, as guests will receive a two-hour private cocktail affair on the connecting penthouse terraces. The four guests will be able to invite up to six friends and family members. The cocktail event will include a fully-stocked open bar complete with a personal mixologist as well as gourmet hors d’oeuvres. The experience is topped off with a professional string trio performance.
Afterward, guests can forget about driving because the package also includes luxury SUV transportation to and from the guests’ restaurant or New Year's party of choice. So, that means no chasing down a cab or requesting an Uber.
After ringing in the new year, guests will be treated to a New Year’s Day VIP Brunch at the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Lexington Brass. Assuming guests aren't too hungover, brunch includes unlimited Bloody Marys and Mimosas.
Brunch is followed by a one-hour in-room massage.
Once back in their penthouse suite, guests will receive a complimentary bottle of premium Dom Perignon champagne along with keepsake Tiffany champagne flutes and Jacques Torres champagne truffles. All of the aforementioned items will be conveniently delivered to the suites.
Finally, when it's time to leave, a Bentley sedan will be waiting to transport the guests to a New York City airport or train station.
It may not be cheap, but it certainly beats whatever we're doing this New Year's Eve.
