The Strand NYC: Model for a Day Package

Having experience in the travel and hospitality industry, I think it's rare and refreshing to see hotel properties think outside of the box when it comes to promotional and package ideas.

The first and only fashion hotel, the The Strand Hotel NYC has a package called "Model For a Day" - and it's AWESOME. The package kicked off during New York Fashion Week February 9, 2012 and is available through December 31, 2012.  The value-added package is ideal for those commemorating a milestone, special occasion or simply to bring out fabulous at any age.

The package includes two-nights’ accommodations in a guaranteed upgraded deluxe room, vintage couture wardrobing for the shoot by New York Vintage, private photo shoot on the rooftop with professional photographer Steve Worth, portfolio containing 100 photos, hair and make-up by EDRIS Salon, hair salon to celebrities and super models, complimentary cocktails at the popular Top of the Strand.  The package is priced at $1,359.00 based on single or double occupancy for two nights. Package is based upon availability and cannot be combined.  Tax and service charges are not included.

Additionally person may be added for an additional cost of $650.00.  For more information, to book and terms and conditions, please call reservations at l-212-448-1024 or email reservations@thestrandnyc.com.
