Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotel 2018


Best NYC Hotels and Packages on New 6th Ave Route

The 2018 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 2018 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.

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

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…’
