The Penthouse Proposal

The Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel, one of our favourite under-the-radar properties, has called our attention to an exciting new option for those considering becoming engaged in the New Year.

The Penthouse Proposal Package,” is built around the fact that the hotel is home to the Liam Neeson Penthouse Suite, which is one of the most romantic hotel suites in all of New York. Located on the top floor of the hotel, the Penthouse is full of unique features that provide the backdrop for a marriage proposal unlike any other.

As you enter through the living room, with a large sitting area around a fireplace, you’re greeted by the richly elegant decor and a dining area ideal for sharing a romantic room service meal lit up by a custom designed Waterford Crystal chandelier. Named after famous actor, the suite is filled with photos and memorabilia that the star presented to the hotel. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide light during the day and great views at night, while a door from the living room takes you out to a very large private rooftop patio, where the skyline and the stars combine to create an unbelievably romantic atmosphere.

The bedroom features a canopied queen size bed, dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets and a featherbed duvet, while the bathroom, with its oversized bathtub and double shower, are all done in magnificent marble tile that was imported from Italy. Bathroom amenities were created exclusively for the hotel by Tarrocco and soft robes and slippers make the luxuriant room even more cozy. You’ll feel like you’re staying in a private Park Avenue apartment.

While the setting itself certainly creates a romantic atmosphere, the components of the package take full advantage of the setting. Fresh flowers and chilled champagne await the couple on arrival, and as they walk in, the romantic CD of their choice will be filling the Penthouse with music. A special romantic dinner for two will be served by a skilled white-gloved waiter in the Penthouse, enjoyed either inside or out on the patio under the stars. The timing of the proposal is, of course, left up to the discretion of the guests. The next morning, room service breakfast will be served, in bed if you prefer, and a rose petal bath will be drawn. A late checkout can also be arranged. We particularly like that part.  Other inclusive options are available, and include a favorite movie on DVD, chocolate covered strawberries, candles, and CD’s to enjoy during dinner.

This experience is available at a rate of $1,999.

Other options are available at additional costs that vary, and include spa treatments, a violinist at dinner, and car service to and from various destinations. As the Penthouse is a one-of-a-kind suite, availability of the package is limited.

So call the Director of Sales, David Ferdinand, at 212-784-2634 to plan your special evening and tell them Jaunt Magazine sent you!

  1. Yes, I agree. You can get some fantastic deals at the Fitzpatrick Hotels in NYC, but this is the Penthouse Suite and, although their regular suites are quite beautiful, the Liam Neeson Penthouse Suite has it’s own private dining room and an outdoor deck – both rarities in the city. It’s like having your own apartment in the heart of Manhattan!
