The ultimate New Years Eve accommodation

Posted on 17 December 2020

Times Square was arguably the most festive location to spend New Year’s Eve B.C. (Before Coronavirus). This year, New Yorkers can stay in the popular location, atop a building, in a glass dome, with Mariah Carey as their host.

Airbnb has created a luxury geodesic dome positioned underneath where the Times Square drops on New Year’s Eve. The company has partnered with Mariah Carey to host a virtual meeting and live performance for those who spend the night.

A private chef will also cook the guests a delicious meal. We can’t think of a better way to send of 2020 than this.

‘With Times Square celebrations going virtual this year, guests will have a truly unique experience during the traditional confetti celebrations, right below the ball,’ said Airbnb in a statement.

‘The one-time, one-night stay is not a contest. New York City residents can request to book this one-night stay for up to two guests on December 31 for just $21, priced in honor of the New Year. Booking open on December 21, 2020.’

What guests can expect from this unique stay:

  • A virtual personal greeting from the one and only Mariah Carey
  • A $5,000 shopping credit to use along with NYC’s famous 5th Avenue or local Times Square shops before their stay, along with a trunk full of sparkly New Year’s Eve hats, 2021 glasses and horns for the countdown to midnight
  • Access to an indoor lounge to watch New Year’s celebrations around the world, adorned with local art by Jason Douglas Griffin, featuring collaborations with Brandon Friend and Jason Reynolds. Or, enjoy the reading nook stocked with board games while waiting for the clock to strike twelve.
  • Dinner (or guests can skip that and head straight to dessert, with a slice of famous Junior’s cheesecake) prepared by a private chef
  • A sparkly piece of crystal featuring this year’s Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball design as a memento to take home.
  • Panoramic views to see all broadcasted events and concerts organized by Times Square Alliance

Take a look at the dome below.
