partner tipNot that you’d ever get tired of your Sunday routine—bagels, errands, fending off the Sunday scaries—but it’s finally feeling like spring in Manhattan and that calls for a change of pace. Your laundry can wait because it’s time to Savor an NYC Weekend!

Whether you fancy an outdoor picnic, a night at the theater or a new restaurant experience, we have mapped out the best way to make the most of this beloved day, thanks to exclusive offers that accompany a Sunday night stay at any of Hilton’s 42 area hotels. So pack your bags and savor a perfect Sunday evening in Manhattan.

Chelsea + Gramercy Park: Stroll the High Line + Taste Rare Wines

Start your Sunday afternoon by surrounding yourself in tranquility at the High Line. Home to more than 110,000 plantings and 456 plant species, the elevated linear park is our go-to for a bit of green space in Chelsea, and from May through October, you’ll find about a dozen food vendors selling various treats in the park. Go for the ice cream.

After you’ve finished your mid-afternoon snack, take a quick walk over to Foragers Market and browse their incredible selection of natural wines. You’ll come away with a new favorite or two. Head to BLT Prime in Gramercy Park for dinner, where you’ll be greeted with fresh-from-the-oven popovers. Your stay at the Hilton Hotels gets you 50 percent off a bottle of wine.

Check into the Doubletree Chelsea where you’ll be greeted with chocolate chip cookies. Many of the modern rooms offer stunning views of the Empire State Building.

Midtown + Uptown: Catch A Show, Followed by a Picnic in Central Park

Whittle away the afternoon with a Sunday matinee at the Roundabout Theatre. Both Skintight, starring Tony Award–winner Idina Menzel (If/Then), and a new production of Travesties, Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award–winning Best Play are playing through the spring.

After the show, pick up a picnic dinner at the Meatball Shop on the Upper East Side—pro tip, you can order ahead online and your stay at the Hilton snags you a complimentary drink—and then head to Central Park for some outdoor time. Turn in for the night at New York Hilton Midtown. Located in bustling Times Square, the hotel manages to be a quiet retreat from the city and you’ll leave Monday morning refreshed for the week ahead.

Downtown: Watch the Sunset with Prosecco Popsicles

Head to Battery Park City, where the Conrad New York’s seasonal Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar is now open. Watch the sunset over the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor while sipping on a Loopy Pop (choose a base of prosecco or rosécco and a pop flavor of Blackberry Sour, Pink Lady Sangria, Strawberry Rose Gin, Pear Ginger Crush or Blueberry de Cana). Finish up your pre-dinner cocktails and head to the Atrio Wine Bar & Restaurant where you can watch executive chef Gerron Douglas prepare your dinner from the open kitchen. Bonus: Your Hilton Hotel stay gets you 20 percent off your meal and a complimentary prosecco toast.

Turn in for the Night
Ignore the Sunday scaries and cozy up for the night at the Conrad New York. The gorgeously, appointed, Hudson River Suite Rooms offer spectacular views of the water. In the morning, wake up to freshly made coconut and sunflower seed granola before heading off to work for the day. Or savor the weekend by playing hooky and asking for a late check-out.
