This luxury experience in New York City includes a hotel stay and $500 shopping spree

There are plenty of things to do and see in New York City, but for a luxury experience, you’ll want to book a stay in this hotel, which offers a $500 shopping spree with your booking. So which hotel is offering a slice of lux living in the big apple? The Mandarin Oriental in Columbus Circle of course.

Beyond the fact that this hotel is already luxury at its finest in New York City, they are also giving guests a chance to experience something unique – a shopping trip at Saks Fifth Avenue. And when it comes to experiencing NYC as a visitor, you really have to visit Fifth Avenue. Whether you are taking advantage of this luxury experience or not, there is something special about this particular stretch of the city.

According to Travel & Leisure, from now through Sept. 7 the Mandarin Oriental is offering a special package which starts at $2,235 and features a $500 gift card to Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as at least two nights in a suite (exceptions apply as some suites are not eligible for this deal), and even daily breakfast for you and a guest for the length of your stay.

Of course, a night or two at the Mandarin Oriental is already the height of luxury, but adding in a trip to Saks means getting a glass of champagne to enjoy during your personalized shopping experience.

Experience the high life with this stay in New York City

While the package itself might be enough to convince you to stay at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City, perhaps you need a little more convincing. Considering this is a five star luxury hotel, with destinations around the world, it is easy to understand why this would be the ultimate place to stay in the heart of NYC. But there is a lot more to this destination than just a place to sleep.

This hotel offers stunning views of the city, contemporary decorations, and bathrooms decked out in high quality materials such as marble and granite. And with it being located in the heart of the city, you’re just steps from everything and anything.

But if you don’t even want to leave your hotel, you can enjoy their spa, their pool, or their fitness center. And of course, fine dining is right in the building, and can even be brought straight to you.

Once you step foot in this hotel, you may never want to leave again. And forget wanting to leave the room – with those views, that bed, and even the bathroom itself, this is a luxury stop in the city.

Honestly, even as someone who as worked in the city, this package has me wanting to book a stay at the Mandarin Oriental for a chance to experience luxury living and shopping. Of course, the fact that it is located by Central Park also means a chance to experience the beauty of nature is another win for this package.

It’s hard to deny that this is the kind of experience that is one of a kind for some of us. Whether it is the shopping spree, the location itself, or the luxury of it all, this is one way to exit quarantine.
