Best NYC Hotels and Packages on new 6th Ave Macys Thanksgiving Parade 2012 Route – The Macys Thanksgiving Parade Hotel route is NEW in 2012!! Here are my HAND PICKED Hotel and Vacation Package options, both on the Parade Route, and just a few minutes away. Be careful when researching older information with hotels in Times Square and on Broadway…those are no longer on the parade route!
