Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Hotels

Oyster.com's top picks for Thanksgiving Day parade view hotels.
The famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City is a sight worth seeing -- if you can manage to shove your way through the crowds to get a peek. If you book one of the hotels along the parade route, you could watch the giant balloons and floats from the comfort of your hotel room. Be warned, though -- many rooms will cost more than 3 times the normal rates. Check out Travel Channel and Oyster.com's top picks for Thanksgiving Day rooms with a view.
Mandarin Oriental New York

The Mandarin Oriental is the best choice in the city for luxury travelers who want to celebrate Thanksgiving in style. Premier Central Park View rooms and suites on the 43rd to 54th floors have superb parade views through floor-to-ceiling windows, and guests who book the I Love A Parade package can watch from the 6,000-square-foot ballroom.

The Hilton New York boasts a prime location smack-dab in the heart of Manhattan on Sixth Avenue, right along the Macy's parade route. It is offering a number of Thanksgiving Packages, with viewing options ranging from Partial View to Premium View. A Premium View will cost over $1,000 a night, and rooms with no view start at $299 (but parade proximity means guests can try to snag a spot in front of the building).

This 1926-built Warwick Hotel may be just five blocks from Central Park, but it's Sixth Avenue that is the center of the New York action during the Macy's parade. Premier Plus Rooms and higher (including Sixth Avenue Suites) all have street views that look out over the parade. But if you can splurge on the two-bedroom Suite of the Stars, the whole family can watch the parade in its near-entirety from the private balcony.

The Essex House makes for a great Thanksgiving option for its proximity to Central Park and stunning city views, which look out over the parade's route down Central Park South. The hotel offers guests two package options – the Buffet Brunch Package, offering views from the hotel's restaurant, or the Parade-View Room Package.

Its name may brag a Times Square location, but the Residence Inn New York Manhattan/ Times Square is actually a block from the Seventh Avenue hustle and bustle, and actually on the parade route on Sixth. The "home away from home" hotel appeals to families for its spacious rooms, kitchenettes, and, on Thanksgiving, its views of the Macy's parade. The Prime View Package offers direct views of the parade from floors four through 10.
Trump International Hotel and Tower
Parade-view rooms at the Trump are hard to come by; the coveted rooms and suites with park views usually book a year in advance. If a luxurious atmosphere and top-notch services are a must, then book early -- and be ready to drop some serious dollars for this prime location.
