Halloween at the Gramercy New York

The hardest part of Halloween is deciding what to dress up as. There are lots of options for single ladies this year. Go simple with a leotard for the best Beyonce costume ever or put on your best poker face and blonde wig for a Lady Gaga impersonation. Or if you really want to do it right, head to New York where Halloween takes over the streets!

NY is famous for its Halloween spirit. Locals walk the street all day in full costume without missing a beat. If your in town visiting, you may feel a bit unprepared. That is where your hotel can help!

With just that in mind, The Marcel at Gramercy hotel has their guests covered this year! The hotel, which just underwent an amazing redesign, is located in the Gramercy section of the city. It’s a prime location – within arm’s reach of Fifth Avenue so you can get some shopping done and still for walk over to 6th Ave. to catch the famous Village Halloween Parade! And to get you ready for that parade, on Saturday, October 31st, a professional make-up artist from Soho’s famed Make-Up Designory will set up shop at the 10th floor lounge to cater to guest’s most interesting Halloween costume requests. From the ghoulish to the glam, your wish is their command. One up the Twilight crowd and go old school with the Interview with a Vampire version of a blood sucker or keep it fashionable as a Harajuku girl.

Along with complimentary gorgeous and ghastly make-up applications, hotel guests will be treated to the Marcel’s Halloween Punch to help get them into the spooky spirit!

It’s the one day you really do get to be someone, or something, else. So really go for it and have fun!
