Best NYC Hotels and Packages on New 6th Ave Route

The best Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotels are along the parade route and offer views from the rooms, restaurants or outside the front of the hotel. Many hotels offer private access to areas along the parade route blocked off to the rest of the viewing public. Here are all the ways to watch the Macy’s New York Thanksgiving Parade from a hotel.

The 2022 Thanksgiving Parade should 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. The Parade changed routes in both 2009 and 2012, so please be aware when researching older information.
