One of the newest additions to Times Square, the Civilian Hotel, located on 48th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, has been one of the hottest spots for Broadway celebrity sightings. The hotel even played host to a post–Tony Awards party this year. The 27-story hotel with 203 rooms was designed by famous Broadway set designer and architect David Rockwell. The hotel lobby, restaurants, and rooms feature a curated collection of theatrical memorabilia. Specifically, the Blue Room showcases an original polo shirt and arm cast from Dear Evan Hansen, a red pair of boots from Kinky Boots, and Elphaba’s hat from Wicked. There are even a rooftop restaurant and bar.

The deal comes with two orchestra-level tickets to either Aladdin, Hadestown, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, or Wicked. Plus, get an exclusive one-hour meet-and-greet with your favorite cast member from the show at the MO Lounge that overlooks Central Park. You also get show swag, to be picked up at the theatre. There’s also a separate Hamilton Broadway VIP experience with rates starting at $845 a night.

Marriott Marquis

The epitome of Broadway hotels and home to the Marquis Theatre, the Marriott Marquis is a centerpiece of Times Square. It’s located on Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets. Ride up in a glass elevator to the lobby’s eighth floor, which is a good place to lounge (and even charge your phone) before or after a Broadway show. And there’s an outdoor terrace open nightly. Since Beetlejuice is currently playing at the Marquis Theatre, the hotel is offering a special “Beetlesuite.” The room feels like you’re stepping onto the set of the musical. There are even striped bathroom amenities and green bedside lights. The hotel package includes black-and-white cookies, gummy worms, and a view of Times Square.
