Ready to book your room?  The Rounders will stay in the heart of New York City’s Theater District and Times Square at the Row Hotel located at 700 8th Avenue, between 44th and 45th Street, New York, NY 10036. We’ll be in the center of the action at this “downtown cool” boutique twenty-eight floor, 1300+ room Inn.

Our tour partner, Performing Arts Consultants (PAC) has negotiated competitive rates during this peak NYC week that includes complimentary Wi-Fi, 10% discounts at the nearby indoor food markets and gift shop, the mandatory NYC baggage handling fees (welcome to NYC!), resort fees, and, occupancy/state/local taxes). Additional nights to our 4-night (and 3-night) Macy’s packages will be available at the same rates, before our dates, at a little more after (Sat and Sun Nights +75.00 per room) space available.

Rounder room rates for this PEAK period in NYC are $358.00 single, $191. ea (double), $140. ea (triple), and $120.ea (quad). Rooms as well as the extras you NEED can be booked here (and only here) with only a deposit due at time of booking. As we have to release any unbooked rooms in late November THIS year, your initial reservation and deposit must made/paid by November 17, 2018. We cannot guarantee there will be rooms available to you if your initial reservation is not made by then.

The extras include Thanksgiving dinner, Band transportation, Planet Hollywood breakfast, and a great selection of Broadway shows. Read the website information carefully as some items are mandatory to performers and not available to tag longs!

Here is our “surprise” Macy’s announcement in video (April 14, 2018):

And of course, here are our rehearsal dates for the Spring, and for the Macy’s event. Please note that to make the trip with the band, you MUST be at all Macy’s rehearsals! 

Thanks for joining our March to Macy’s 2019!
