Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotel 2016



Best NYC Hotels and Packages on New 6th Ave Route

The Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotel route changed in 2012, leaving lots of Hotel rooms off the parade route. NYC Insider has hand picked some great new Hotel and Vacation Package options, both on the Parade Route, and just a few minutes away.

The 2016 Thanksgiving Parade is predicted to follow along Sixth Avenue (aka, Avenue of the Americas). In prior years, the most popular Thanksgiving Hotels were along 7th Avenue and Broadway, but now those are a block off the Parade Route.

Best Hotel Rooms for Thanksgiving Parade New York City

There are plenty of hotels along the 2016 Thanksgiving Parade Route. Some Thanksgiving in New York City hotels have great views of the Parade (and some don’t!), making it easy to stay warm and dry, use a rest room, eat and STILL watch the Parade from a prime spot. Many of them also offer Thanksgiving in New York City Hotel Packages (though they can be pricey).

The Parade changed routes in both 2009 and 2012, so please be aware when researching older information.

2016 Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotels on Parade Route

So where will you watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade this year? From your hotel room, restaurant, lounge?

All Thanksgiving Day Parade Trip Advisor reviews are from the new parade route and listed from North to South addresses (start to end of the Parade).

Trump International Hotel
‘This is an excellent place to stay for Thanksgiving weekend as the parade passes directly in front of the hotel. We have also stayed at the Mandarin-Oriental at Columbus Circle which is also an excellent choice, but the view for the parade is better at Trump. They have a great viewing area for hotel guests only…’

Mandarin Oriental, New York
Their ‘6,000 sqft ballroom is Manhattan’s best-kept secret for watching Macy’s legendary annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Guests who book the I Love a Parade package have exclusive access to perch 280 feet above the parade’s colorful array of floats and balloons passing through Columbus Circle on Thanksgiving morning.’

JW Marriott Essex House New York
Situated on Central Park South and a premier Thanksgiving Day Parade hotel. Enjoy unparalleled views without the hassle of crowds and cold weather when you book one of their luxurious guest rooms or suites.

the Quin – Thanksgving reviews, ‘Great Hotel for The Thanksgiving Day Parade!!! Being on The Thanksgiving Day Parade Route, rooms were costly as to be expected. The room was clean and well equipped.
