It’s officially the start to the holiday season, so it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve plans. Looking to get out of the house but don’t want to be surrounded by crowds? Check out some of the events going on at LUMA Hotel Times Square.


LUMA Hotel is located in the perfect location of Times Square. It’s not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, but still close enough if you want to be part of it.


Ring in 2020 from the comfort of your hotel room. When you book a Ball Drop View room or suite you can still experience the ball drop at midnight in person, but without dealing with the crowds of people on the street. The view of the ball is a rear view so you can’t see the events happening on the street, but enjoy the show on TV.


With two different packages offered, your night can’t go wrong. Enjoy a full-course meal in the hotel restaurant, Ortzi, or have a bottle of Champagne and a platter of treats sent right to your door. No matter what package you choose, expect a visit from Alina, the hotel’s butler robot, with some NYE goodies.


Looking for more of a party? Attend the NYE Party at Ortzi Bar/Lounge. Enjoy an open bar, a DJ, a Champagne toast at midnight and a live stream of the ball drop.


Whether you are looking for a relaxing night or to party, LUMA Hotel Times Square has you covered.

But if you find yourself in Rome and face crowds of epic proportions, here are a few ways to get away from the masses and enjoy Rome as more of a vacation destination than a tourist trap.
