If you’re ready to do a little holiday catch-up with your besties, make a beeline for Conrad New York Downtown. The lobby metamorphosed into a holiday forest of heavenly scented, decorated Virginia Spruce trees. Make your first stop ATRIO Barista Station in the lobby for a complimentary hot spiced apple cider (until Dec. 3) or hot chocolate (Dec. 22­–24).

Book the Girlfriend Getaway and enjoy a sumptuous girl dinner in in your suite (pajamas and pearls optional), along with a $100 in-room dining credit. Fresh, local ingredients are featured in menu items, including dishes like octopus carpaccio with saffron aïoli, almond romesco and squid ink tuile; and russet potato white pie, made with gruyère, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, basil pesto and Espelette pepper.

Add on the Goodnight Conrad option and enjoy dishing about your favorite Netflix celebs before dozing off in silk sleep masks to the sound of a natural white noise machine. Guests also receive an indulgent Byredo nighttime care kit and Scentered Sleep Therapy Balm. Don’t worry about staying up too late: You can sleep in the next morning thanks to a guaranteed 1 p.m. late check-out.

Holiday season guests have the option to add on a decorated tree to their suite booking, along with a delivery of milk and cookies. And on Dec. 23, 24 and 25, Santa himself will be on hand to bring greetings to guests in the hotel lobby.

Other special stays include Candle Garden Workshops, offered in partnership with The Candle Garden candle company. Pop-up classes in candle making are available to guests through Dec. 30, with expert guidance in the process of creating two 9-ounce soy candles in a choice of scents. Candles are ready to be taken home the next day. Check the hotel website for dates and availability of workshops, as well as specific times for Santa’s lobby visits.
