This year marks the 100th anniversary of the World’s Most Popular Hotel. Hotel Pennsylvania in New York has been in the business of providing guests with comfortable rooms for a budget-friendly rate since 1919. Things have certainly changed since that year, but one thing has remained the same: Hotel Penn is a frontrunner of the hospitality industry.

Recently the accommodations have undergone some major changes. Rooms and suites have been refurbished from top to bottom and the hotel has introduced a brand new collection of rooms, the Penn Plaza Collection. According to Gene Nicotra, VP and GM of Hotel Penn, “The Penn Plaza Collection concept came about from feedback we have received over the years and re-affirms our commitment to our guests.”

To celebrate the launch of the new and improved Hotel Penn, something special happening starting May 1st. For just $2.50 per night you’ll be able to stay in one of the Penn Plaza rooms. This promotion is being referred to as the “Opening Day” offer, and not just because Penn is being showcased to the world with some major improvements. 

The $2.50 rate was the price of a room back on the original opening day of January 25th, 1919. Hotel Penn thought that the best way to celebrate the recent renovations and 100th anniversary by charging that same price. However, not everyone will be able to book a room for $2.50; it is limited to the first 100 bookings made by guests booking on the website. 

Although this promotion is only lasting for a short amount of time to celebrate this year’s centennial anniversary, there are constantly Hotel Penn special offers, both ongoing and for a limited time only. You’ll always be guaranteed the best price in the area, especially since Hotel Penn lives by a Best Rate Guarantee rule. This policy literally states that if you find a cheaper option that is similar, the hotel will match that price.
