For a last-minute splurge this Christmas, Manhattan’s Langham Hotel is combining the sweet life with George Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker” by presenting The Sugarplum Suite at The Langham. It’s a pretty plum deal, with guests enjoying a two-night stay in the Presidential Suite or a penthouse at The Langham, Fifth Avenue, with floor-to-ceiling views of the Empire State Building, a vast living room to dance your heart out in, a dining room with seating for eight, two king-sized bedrooms and over-sized marble-clad bathrooms with soaking tubs and rain showers.
And it gets even sweeter: The deal includes an immersive in-room candy experience, featuring wall-to-wall candy jars throughout the suite, and a platter of complimentary holiday treats created just for your family by the Langham’s pastry team. On such a sugar high, you may never want to leave the hotel, but if you do, complimentary chauffeured transportation awaits, to whisk you to and from Lincoln Center, where you’ll have VIP seats to Balanchine’s iconic production, performed by the New York City Ballet.
A booking window of at least seven days is required for The Sugarplum Suite at The Langham package, which starts at $22,000, with access to the tickets to “The Nutcracker” subject to availability.
And if that price tag stretches your Christmas budget, know that any guest at The Langham this holiday can add a special Celebrations Cart to their stay. Starting at $495 for two guests, this special amenity can be wheeled into any guest room replete with sweets, treats, holiday decorations and, for the adults, a bottle of chilled Laurent Perrier La Cuvée Rosé Champagne NV. We’ll drink to that.
