Times Square is, for many people, a love it or hate it type of place. Some thrive in the hustle and bustle but, for others, the bright lights and loud noises are a sensory overload. But whether you’re a fan or not, Times Square plays a huge part in New Year celebrations.

After strictly virtual celebrations last year, Times Square will be welcoming back the crowds to ring in 2022 with the renowned ball drop that has taken center stage every New Year’s Eve since 1907. Safety measures will be in place, including proof of full vaccination and valid photo identification.

“We want to have a great New Year’s Eve celebration in this city,” said New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, at a press conference earlier this month. “This city has been through so much, but this has been a heroic city, fighting through COVID. We’re turning the corner. We’ve got a lot to celebrate. So, it’s going to be a big moment in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.”

If you’d still like to revel in the atmosphere of Midtown Manhattan but don’t fancy stepping into a crowd, you can now enjoy the Times Square ball drop from the comfort of your own luxurious hotel bed.

M Social Hotel Times Square is giving travelers the chance to enjoy the ball drop from their hotel room this New Year’s Eve, with an exclusive New Year’s Eve package that’s sure to start off 2022 with a bang.

The offer includes 10% off the daily room rate, high-speed internet, My Millennium rewards points, and a sleek and modern room overlooking the Times Square ball drop. A glass of champagne in hand, ringing in the New Year with an incredible view of New York City, all while sat in pajamas in bed? The dream… well mine, anyway!

If you fancy getting dressed up, M Social is also hosting a spectacular New Year’s Eve party on the terrace where you can see the dazzling lights and iconic moment of the ball drop. You’ll get the ultimate party vibe, away from the main crowds on the street—there’s an open bar, h’dourves, live entertainment, and a champagne toast at midnight.

Not strictly limited to New Year’s Eve, the offer is also available in the interim between Christmas and New Year, as well as the first few days in January so you’re able to start off 2022 in style.

The newly opened M Social Times Square prides itself in its thoughtfully designed social spaces that are accessible, comfortable, and practical to guests’ needs, including outdoor venues with some of the best views of the city.
