Honeymoon Hotspots in New York City

Whether you’re looking for a place to spend the first night after your wedding, or you’ll be vacationing in New York City for your honeymoon, the city has many unique locations to offer.   Every couple wants a dream location to enjoy the first days after their wedding, and this task should be made incredibly easy in the city that never sleeps.

Many hotels actually offer honeymoon packages.   The Washington Jefferson, for instance, as part of the Triumph Hotels brand owned by Shimmie Horn, has an “I Do” celebration for a limited time. They offer a special that includes a luxury room with a Jacuzzi tub for two, a bottle of champagne upon arrival, a buffet breakfast for two and other amenities.   Shimmie Horn hotels include attention to detail and service that is rarely seen in today’s high-paced industry.

For a modern and hip feel, honeymooners will love The Standard New York.   The room designs include glass-walled showers and tubs, incredible city views, and plush linens.   Guests will love being on the city’s trendy new High Line Park and will enjoy mingling with celebrities and stylish New York locals at the hotel’s five bars.

For a completely different experience, bookworms simply have to book their honeymoon reservation at the Library Hotel. This unique experience includes a second floor reading room with free coffee all day and wine and cheese from 5-8 pm.   The love room is a junior suite that’s perfect for the newlyweds, situated on the 11th floor with a charming balcony. The room names in this creative literary-themed boutique are based on the Dewey Decimal System!

Whether you’re after a hip, elegant hotel like the Washington Jefferson with Shimmie Horn, a modern experience or a literary nook, you’ll be sure to find something appealing in the Big Apple.   Love is in the air year round here — and the many hotels in the area certainly help to make your first days as a married couple successful.
