NEW YORK: Who wants to sleep with tennis superstars Paul Henri Mathieu and Adrian Mannarino? Or, rather, who wants to sleep in a luxurious suite in the same hotel? Before the tennis greats battle it out for the ultimate championship title in the Grand Slam Tournaments, they’ll bunk down at the glamorous Omni Berkshire Place in midtown Manhattan. It’s an ideal address for discerning sports fans, so Omni decided to also help get privileged ticket-holders get set for the match of the year with three special packages that put them in the action with all the pampering a tennis superstar could expect.
During the tournament — August 25 through September 8 – all guests staying at the luxurious Omni Berkshire Place can book “15-Love,” “30-Love” or “40-Love” guest packages. These packages offer unforgettable New York experiences from world-class shopping and fine dining, to the best of Broadway, Manhattan museums and music.
For tennis fans coming to New York for a three-night stay, the $1,500 “15-Love” package offers a champagne toast upon arrival in a deluxe room, then breakfast for two at the property’s Fireside Restaurant in the morning. For those who want to rally for a four-night stay, the “30-Love” package includes champagne upon arrival, a plush premier room with breakfast in bed, plus dinner for two on the one-of-a-kind 17th floor terrace. This $3,000 package is designed for those that want to relax after watching multiple matches throughout the day.
Guests looking for grand-slam New York City treatment worthy of a tennis star, the $4,000 “40-Love” package features a four-night stay in a luxurious one-bedroom suite with treats upon arrival and round-trip private car service to the tournament. All that sitting and watching can make any tennis fan hungry, so to top off a great day of tennis, guests will receive a romantic dinner for two on the 17th floor terrace. I don’t know about you, but it’s just what this weary box-seat fan needs after a long day of pivoting my neck left and right. www.omnihotels.com
