I have booked a room, with award points, for the Doubletree Times Square for next New Year's Eve 2010/11. What can I expect for the New Years Eve experience? We wish to be in Times Square and experience all New York Times Square New Years Event.
I understand revelers must get there early, and are herded into pens. I've read that at some hotels, like the Marriott Marquis, guest wishing to go in and out to use the restroom not easy. However, I am only interested in the Doubletree Suites TS, and if guest there are able to go in and out. Do Doubletree guest also have to get herded into a pen early in the day?
Is there anyone who was a guest of the doubletree this year who can share their experience or advice?
Simply, we would be happy to be in a "pen" at/near the Doubletree, but able to go in an out for restroom breaks. Any and all information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
