A Gossip Girl reboot is coming to HBO Max July 8. The reboot promises to “introduce a fresh crop of gorgeous Manhattan private-schoolers to Gossip Girl’s all-seeing eye” in its 10-episode first season. The show also plans to address how social media and the landscape of New York have changed since the original series went off the air in 2012.


INNSiDE by Meliá New York Nomad created a customized, Gossip Girl-inspired offer for hotel guests, allowing them to experience the iconic New York City locations from the show from the comfort of their guestroom.


For the month of July and beginning at $299 per night, the package includes HBO Max streaming capabilities, a stay in the Townhouse Suite (either Standard Townhouse Suite or, for a fee, Townhouse Suite with Terrace) and 15 percent off at The Wilson restaurant with a complimentary glass of Prosecco, up to four people maximum. Additionally, the guestroom will boast inspired room décor, including the Spectrum by Richard Phillips Canvas and Prada Marfa Canvas, as seen in one of the show character’s apartment, and more, such as XOXO balloons, a box of macaroons, pink martini cups and Prosecco. The hotel team can assist with booking NYC experiences reminiscent of the show characters, like Empire State Building tickets and a 30-minute photoshoot.
