Conrad New York Guests Can Experience The “Summer In The City” Package, Featuring Private Sailing Lessons And A Curated Citi Bike Tour
Lower Manhattan Hotel Combines Luxury Accommodations with Exploratory Experiences to Offer Guests an Unparalleled NYC Urban Getaway
NEW YORK - Conrad New York offers Summer in the City, a seasonal package inspired by Battery Park City's popular outdoor attractions. The package includes private sailing lessons and a curated afternoon of biking via Citi Bikes throughout a luxuriously appointed stay at Conrad New York. The hotel is currently the only New York City property to offer guests access to Citi Bikes throughout the summer. Overlooking historic Manhattan Harbor and set along tranquil views of the Hudson River, the 463 all-suite luxury hotel is an ideal location for discovering Manhattan by land or sea.
"Conrad New York is in the residential heart of Lower Manhattan's Battery Park City neighborhood and this summer we wanted to give our guests a chance to enjoy a unique stay through this al fresco-inspired package," said Robert Rechtermann, general manager of Conrad New York. "We created the Summer in the City package for our guests to be able to explore the city at their own leisure both by bike and sail, through our local partners. Our goal is to ensure guests never just stay with us, but that they continuously stay inspired by the incredible energy this neighborhood offers."
Conrad New York has teamed up with neighboring North Cove Sailing to offer guests of all experience levels the chance to learn how to sail alongside the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island under the direction of skilled and certified instructors with a private two-hour sailing lesson for two.
The hotel has also partnered with Citi Bike to offer guests a new way to explore the city by bike. Upon arrival, guests receive a unique code and specially curated map, highlighting neighborhood landmarks and Citi Bike docking stations throughout Battery Park City, lower Manhattan and other neighborhoods. Guests can cruise through Hudson River Park and pause for a break at the iconic One World Observatory or enjoy oysters and rosé at Grand Banks along the Hudson River. Guests booking the Summer in the City package will enjoy unlimited access to over 10,000 Citi Bike bicycles through the Citi Bike network which currently has over 600 stations in New York City.
Set in the heart of Battery Park City, Conrad New York is steps from Hudson River Park, stretching from Battery Park up the Hudson River to 59th Street. It is the longest bike route in the city and provides visitors the opportunity to explore Manhattan's West Side, crossing paths with historic sites such as the Intrepid, and more recent city attractions such as Highline Park and the new Whitney Museum of American Art in the Meatpacking district.
The Summer in the City package features a one night's stay in a luxuriously appointed Hudson River Suite, a private two-hour sailing lesson on Manhattan Harbor and unlimited Citi Bike access during their stay.
