Fleet Week New York, a week-long celebration of our sea services, kicks off in just two weeks. Now in its 27th year, Fleet Week 2015 will take place from May 20th through Memorial Day.
Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and citizens from across the country come together to honor our naval forces and heroes who have served America. Attendees can tour naval ships and check out an exciting schedule of activities and events, including concerts and U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue Demos. If you’re heading to New York for the Fleet Week experience, consider these two hotels, both rich in nautical-history and offering incredible deals for the occasion.
The Maritime Hotel
40% discount on standard room rates - All veterans and active duty military personnel can book for $195/night (typically $325)
West Chelsea, New York City
Built in 1968 as the headquarters for the National Maritime Union, this nautical-themed modernist landmark is paying tribute to its heritage – and the men and women who have served in our armed forces – by offering a 40% discount on standard room rates. All veterans and active duty military personnel can book for $195/night (typically $325) from Friday, May 22 – Monday, May 25.
The discounted rate begins on National Maritime Day, Friday May 22 during Fleet Week, and extends through Memorial Day on May 25. To book, call (212) 242-4300 or use the code SEAVET.
The Jane Hotel
Rates start at $115/night during Fleet Week
West Village, New York City
Completed in 1908, the American Seaman’s Friend Society Sailors’ Home and Institute was designed by William A. Boring, the architect renowned for Ellis Island’s immigrant station. Originally built as a hotel for sailors with cabin-like rooms, the landmarked hotel was lovingly restored on its centennial in 2008. In 1912, the survivors of the Titanic stayed at the hotel until the end of the American Inquiry into the ship’s sinking. Rates start at $115/night during Fleet Week, and The Jane Rooftop opens just before the celebration on Friday, May 15 so you can take in the unparalleled Hudson River views.
