If you long to go away on vacation — but dread all the cables and chargers you’ll need to stay connected — you’ll dig this boutique hotel, where the power’s always on in New York!
Where: Hotel Giraffe. 365 Park Ave. South, New York. 212- 685-7700
What’s special: Located at the corner of Park Avenue South and 26th Street., Hotel Giraffe is a hop away from great dining, Union Square, and the Empire State Building. Between people-watching and the sights, New York is made for walking. Access to Times Square, Broadway, or Grand Central Station for a tour is easy. (The subway is two blocks away if you prefer a faster ride.) Afterward, relax at the hotel’s rooftop patio or enjoy evening wine and cheese in the lobby (be sure to return in the morning for breakfast).
The deal: Recharge your mind, body, and spirit with a culture-filled weekend — and recharge your devices with a free gift. Along with overnight accommodations, including a European-style breakfast (bagels, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, coffee), wine and cheese reception (except Sundays), passes to New York Sports Club, and 15-percent off standard promotional rates, this exclusive offer provides a complimentary PowerMat mobile device-charging mat and a rechargeable backup battery. Now you can wander New York while staying connected with your home base back in the Valley. (Your savings is $100 for the PowerMat and $50 for the rooms.) Room rate after discount begins at $263. Click here to book; use promo code “Hudson.”
When: Through April 30
