Sunday evenings in NYC provide excellent theatre, dining and entertainment options as well as great value at the city’s hotels.
Sundays are an ideal time for visitors to access many of the amenities the city has to offer without the hectic pace that characterises other days of the week. In addition, visitors will typically find better value if they choose a Sunday night stay—in many cases, savings of up to 15 to 20 per cent off the room rate. NYC & Company is rolling out a new resource at nycgo.com/sundaynightstays that summarises activities and events that take place on Sundays including listings of Sunday-evening Broadway and Off-Broadway shows as well as various Sunday night restaurant incentives. Consumers can not only better plan their itinerary for their next Sunday stay, but can also book at NYC & Company’s 250 member hotels. For more information, visit nycgo.com/sundaynightstays.
“Sunday is the new Saturday in New York City—with our newly relaunched NYC Sunday Stays program, we’re inviting leisure and business travellers to consider staying over on a Sunday evening to take advantage of all the excitement the city has to offer at a decidedly less hectic pace. From Broadway and Off-Broadway shows to a variety of other entertainment and performing arts options and enticing Sunday restaurant incentives, it’s an ideal time to be in the city. Typically, hotel rates are also 15 to 20 per cent less expensive, affording visitors even more value,” said NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta.
On Sunday evenings, visitors can now access special dining deals at around 30 participating restaurants. In addition to Sunday theatre matinees, nine Broadway and seven Off-Broadway shows currently offer Sunday evening performances, including Book of Mormon, The Lion King, Mamma Mia! and Avenue Q. Other unique events on Sundays include flea markets, festivals and parades. The website also lists specific events taking place on upcoming Sundays, including the New York Knicks vs New Orleans Pelicans basketball game on 1st December 2013 at Madison Square Garden and Beyoncé at the Barclays Center on 22nd December 2013.
On average, NYC & Company estimates that Sunday night stays typically cost about 15-20 per cent less than other days of the week, depending on the season.
The NYC Sunday Stays programme was first launched in 2007 by NYC & Company—the current iteration focuses more on what the destination has to offer on Sundays in addition to the overall value that hotels provide on this day of the week as opposed to individual hotel offers and value add-ons.
