One of our favorite hotels that we stayed at in 2017 is the luxurious WestHouse Hotel, located in Midtown West. It is conveniently located by many major New York City landmarks, has gorgeous written all over it from lobby to room, and provides amenities that would make many of the other hotels in NYC very jealous. They have upped the ante this holiday season to make your stay even better, and have plenty of reasons why you should be checking in ASAP.
The holiday season is upon us, and with the subzero temperatures come piping hot drinks, festive, feel good décor, shopping extravaganzas, opulent window displays, and a wide array of options and showcases to celebrate the season in the city. WestHouse Hotel New York, the luxury boutique hotel innovating Manhattan’s hospitality landscape with its distinct “house away from home” concept, has the ultimate holiday lineup filled with events, packages, and offerings to indulge and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year:
Winter Wonderland Factory at WestHouse: Make Your Own Ornament to Save the Children

Visitors to the WestHouse will have the opportunity to imagine, design, and create their own holiday ornament, with proceeds directly benefitting Save the Children, an organization that helps children in 120 countries, including the United States. Save the Children invests in childhood by giving children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
The Winter Wonderland Factory will be open from Wednesday – Sunday at WestHouse, with the opportunity to make your own ornaments for a $10 donation that will directly benefit those in need. By supporting this cause, WestHouse and guests will help to transform children’s lives now, in order to change the course of their future.

Tasting Series at The Den
Within the past decade, hotel bars have reinvented themselves from drab, nondescript places to grab drinks into chic and exclusive destinations where hotel guests, visitors, and locals converge. WestHouse’s own onsite lounge and bar, The Den, will host one tasting event each month offering a flight of spirits for $35.00. The Tasting Series will expand on the Den’s successful Silver Screen event, a weekly movie showcase that offers specialty cocktails paired with each film. Their calendar of events has been carefully curated to highlight different spirits based on the seasons and will be shown alongside specific themes or Hollywood’s biggest stars and the libations they love, and their Winter lineup offers the best of cinema alongside spirits chosen to keep you warm from outside cold. Each tasting will be hosted from 6:30pm – 8pm and offer 4-5 premium flights of the month’s highlighted spirit. While the lounge is open to the public, the tasting series is limited to eight guests max and reservations are required.
Reservations for tastings may be found on the Eventbrite platform each month.
