Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is the first taste of the holiday season here in the United States and the majority of my favorite Thanksgiving memories have been spent here in the Big Apple. Coming together with family and friends, celebrating all we have to be thankful for and indulging in holiday delights is what life is all about. If you’re looking to treat yourself this year and celebrate Thanksgiving in luxury this holiday season, the Trump SoHo New York is offering just that. They have designed an over-the-top Thanksgiving penthouse experience for holiday travelers looking to enjoy a decadent gathering with friends and family.

This holiday getaway weekend has something for everyone. I recently visited the Trump SoHo New York, which is the only AAA Diamond property located in Manhattan, and got a taste of their upcoming Thanksgiving getaway experience. There is no better city in the world to be in than New York on Thanksgiving weekend. Travelers can experience all that the Big Apple has to offer. Take in the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, hit shops in trendy boutiques of SoHo or make your way to Fifth Avenue for an afternoon of luxe holiday shopping on Black Friday. Here are some of the highlights:

Sweeping floor-to-ceiling views of the city skyline will serve as guests’ backdrop, as they enjoy a decadent feast fit for New York’s finest in a festive penthouse decorated by Trump SoHo’s seasoned events team.

Spa-Goers Pumpkin Delight

Ladies, you are going to relish Pumpkin Body Polish Treatment offered at The Spa at Trump SoHo. I spent an afternoon enjoying the full body treatment and lingering in the spa lounge, soaking in the serenity and skyline. Given that it was a pumpkin experience, I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it, but it was incredible. Products were by June Jacobs Spa Collections, including; the Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque, Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polish and the Citrus Body Balm. There was a subtle hint of pumpkin aroma, which was very calming, and it provided a mellow comfort with each breath. The Citrus Body Balm rounded out my massage experience and it had just enough citrus to wake me from my pumpkin-induced relaxation. I felt so completely refreshed that it carried me through the weekend, and I found myself longing for another trip to The Trump Spa for more. Great holiday weekend experience!

Football Fans Have Front Row Seats

American football fans won’t miss a minute of game day during their Thanksgiving penthouse getaway. Located on the top floors of the 46-story Trump SoHo, the spacious penthouse suites command expansive floor-to-ceiling views of Manhattan or the Hudson River, with open floor plans that are perfect for entertaining. Penthouses range from 1,600 to 2,300 square feet, including the premier Duplex Penthouse that features two 46-inch Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 televisions and the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A9 sound system. This is fantastic for those who can’t miss out on a hearty helping of Thanksgiving football.
