Right up there with It’s A Wonderful Life, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York has become an unexpected Christmas classic, especially for city-based celebrants. In this 1992 blockbuster, 10-year-old Kevin McCallister is let loose in New York City with only his father’s credit card as company—every child’s dream realized this year by The Plaza Hotel. Just in time for the film’s 25th anniversary, the iconic hotel where it was shot is inviting guests to “live like Kevin.”
With its opulent décor and famous reputation, any stay at Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel is movie material. This December, however, The Plaza will focus on one film in particular, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. From December 1, 2017, to October 29, 2018, the hotel will offer a “HOME ALONE 2 Anniversary Room Package,” an ultimate fan experience inspired by Kevin’s Plaza adventures. Taking you around New York City (and back in time, for those who can recall the film’s release), this limited-edition experience was designed for kids at heart, now equipped with their own credit cards.
The Plaza’s package, which starts at $895, affords you a Merry Christmas every day, “ya filthy animal,” with Kevin-approved perks, such as a branded backpack holding a copy of the film’s “Anniversary Edition” Blu-ray. For guests who are “not driving,” a complimentary in-room sundae cart delivered by a personal butler who will make your dessert completes the experience. Like Kevin, you may find the suite—we mean, sweet—life suits you and wish to further enhance your stay. With easy add-ons such as express passes to the top of the Empire State Building and a four-hour limousine tour of Kevin’s New York, The Plaza ensures no experiences are lost on your Lost In New York adventure. A big screen-worthy trip like this deserves to be captured on film, making The Plaza’s personalized vacation photographer, Flytographer, a must-add enhancement.
In true McCallister spirit, the fun keeps on coming with an array of movie-themed entertainment. Beginning on December 1, 2017, The Plaza Food Hall will host a Home Alone 2 exhibit, featuring an original photo experience that places fans in Kevin’s shoes as he takes a bite out of the Big Apple. As early as November 20th, fans of food and the film alike can enjoy ’90s kid-approved plates at the Todd English Food Hall, where charcuterie Lunchables and gourmet “Todd” pockets will be washed down with Sunny-D-inspired cocktails. Even better than a hot pizza served in the back of a limo, this and all of The Plaza’s movie-inspired offerings will make you love losing yourself in New York.
