All roads lead to W New York – Times Square, as the city hosts WorldPride 2019

A celebration of different identities!

By ELLE team  June 27th, 2019

All through June, New York will see its usual summer travel footfall swell, as the city is this year’s WorldPride host—a gigantic milestone for the global LGBTQIA+ movement, as it marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, which kick-started the last half-century-long struggle for queer liberation. The month-long festivity will see an assortment of unmissable events ranging from OutCinema, which celebrates queer films, to theatre performances that draw attention to homophobia and resistance to equal rights around the world, a human rights conference, and plenty more. And W New York – Times Square has a special deal for those looking to hit the streets and celebrate. 

Called the WorldPride Package, it entitles guests to a stay in either an EXTREME WOW or WOW suite (both of which feature unparalleled cityscape views), access for two to ride the W Hotels float at the parade, two exclusive W Hotels of New York WorldPride NYC 2019 swag bags and two custom W Pride garments. A stay in a suite also gets you a complimentary glass of the A-Z cocktail, the hotel’s must-try signature drink, comprised of 26 ingredients (each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, hence the name) that has been crafted by expert London-based mixologists Bompas & Parr.

But the parade isn’t the only reason you should stay with W Hotels. W Times Square and its sister properties W New York – Downtown and W Hoboken have teamed up with nine health instructors, to develop and curate fitness experiences. So whether your activity of choice is bootcamp cardio (with Jason Tran), hip hop dance (with Hope Easterbrook) or even the more zen option of sound meditation (with Sarah Auster), there’s plenty on offer to keep you in shape.
