Twenty-five years ago Home Alone 2: Lost In New York set the standard for every kid's travel-based dreams, as it sent Kevin McCallister to New York's Plaza Hotel in style. With amazing service, an opulent style, and a room big enough for the most insane ice cream sundae ever on film, young Kevin's second holiday alone was truly one for the books. And if you've always wanted to relive that infamous Christmas in the trenches, The Plaza Hotel is offering a package that'll get you most of the way there.
The hotel recently announced its Home Alone 2-themed package, which includes accommodations in one of The Plaza Hotel's finest rooms, as well as a "90s inspired" food tasting in the hotel's in-house restaurant. Also promised are various unspecified touches, both throughout the hotel and inside your guest room, that invoke the experiences of the 1992 film's portrayal of the classic New York institution. Last but not least, that insane sundae they showed Kevin ordering in the movie? Totally comes with the experience if you book this particular package.
Of course, the catch is that the Home Alone 2: Lost In New York hotel experience will come at a bit of a price. More specifically, rates for this package start at a hefty $895. While it's still cheaper than the rate Kevin McCallister was estimated to have paid back in 1992, that much for a hotel room better come with some serious perks. Well, in addition to everything mentioned above, there's apparently some Home Alone 2 swag that'll be included with your stay, as well as access to concierge service.
With the front desk's finest to assist you, you'll be able to arrange transportation around the city, as well as order yourself a large cheese pizza for the limo tour into town, if you so desire. Though one piece of the experience we'd expect to be absent is, of course, any sort of snooping similar to that of the Plaza Hotel staff in Home Alone 2. Unless you give them a reason to think you're suspicious, in which case you're on your own.
This is a big step up from the last time we remember Home Alone doing any sort of publicity stunt, as the celebration of the first film's anniversary saw UberEATS delivering the trademark "Little Nero's Pizza" to whoever decided to order it. But now, people can order a pretty awesome package of extravagant fun and games, turning what would normally be a standard hotel stay into New York's most exciting hotel experience.
If you're interested in experiencing the Home Alone 2 flavored "Live Like Kevin" package offered by the world-renowned Plaza Hotel, it will be available between Friday, December 1st and Monday, October 29th, 2018. For reservations, and more details on the package's contents, head over to The Plaza Hotel's official website. Just make sure to have a major credit card on hand to complete the process.
