Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, in NYC. Photo courtesy of NYC & Co.Thanksgiving weekend is a major holiday in the US, and eating turkey dinner isn't the only tradition: several cities stage a giant Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City is the most iconic, famous for its giant character balloons, and viewed by millions on TV.

Needless to say, it's hard to find a good viewing spot along the parade route in Manhattan. Once again, families visiting New York City for Thanksgiving weekend can book a 3-night package at the Affinia Manhattan hotel -- a package that features nearly-impossible-to-get grandstand tickets for the parade.

Affinia Manhattan: Thanksgiving Day Celebration Package

This package is available at the at the Affinia Manhattan -- the official hotel of the parade-- for stays November 23 to 27 2011, with rates starting at $500/night. Package includes:
  • Four Grandstand tickets to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
  • To-go breakfast from 6:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. before the parade
  • $100 food and beverage credit
  • 20% off Niles New York City Bar & Restaurant, the hotel's restaurant
  • Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ornament
  • 10% shopping discount at Macy's
The Affinia Manhattan hotel has a midtown location (Seventh Avenue) that's near the parade route, and has recently had a $25 million redesign.

This "Thanksgiving Day Celebration Package" package must be booked by November 22, but this package sold out last year, so it's best to book early. Call 1-866-AFFINIA and use the promo code PARADE or visit http://www.affinia.com/parade.
