This Manhattan Hotel Wants You to Picnic in the Park in Style

Central Park is located just steps from The Sherry-Netherland.

Iconic Midtown Manhattan hotel, The Sherry-Netherland, is offering a “Picnic in Central Park Vacation Package” that includes a basket filled with delectable bites that guests can enjoy in the world-famous park just across the street.

Guests who book this two-night stay in a room or suite receive picnic accessories including a deluxe insulated hamper and a soft blanket, both adorned with the hotel’s gold crest, to enjoy an al fresco experience. The basket is filled with a hand-selected assortment of treats such as cheeses, savory charcuterie, fresh fruit, and gourmet cookies, all accompanied by a bottle of wine. Known as New York City’s “backyard” and just steps from the hotel, Central Park offers a picture-perfect picnic setting, from lounging on the Great Lawn, boating on the Lake, or taking in a horse and carriage ride. Should the weather not cooperate, or if guests are looking for a more intimate experience, the basket can be enjoyed within the comfort of their own hotel room.
