We are excited to be partnered up with some of the city’s best summer attractions and look forward to welcoming travelers this season.”

Below is a list of activities the Grand Hyatt New York offers.

Summer in the City Experience

Available June 7 through Sept. 4, travelers no longer have to agonize between the NYC skyline and the expected summer delights of a sunny beach trip. The Grand Hyatt New York partnered with Seastreak ferry to provide its guests with both the skyline and the beach in one trip. By embarking on the Summer in the City Experience, guests take the 45 minute ferry ride to Sandy Hook beach, where they can access historical sites, multi-use paths, hiking trails, 300 species of migratory birds, and of course the beach, all while being able to see the NYC skyline. Guests don't even have to worry about beach necessities such as sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, a beach ball, or a beach bag, as that is included in the package for a worry-free trip. To travel to the beach, a ferry ride departing from E. 35th Street Ferry Terminal has a satellite TV, a full cash bar, plush seating, both to Sandy Hook beach and back to the city, as the package includes two round-trip tickets, with the choice between 3 departure times and 3 return times on the weekends (2 during the week). The Summer in the City Experience also includes two glasses of Altaneve Prosecco rose NV at New York Central restaurant. Lastly, the package also includes an overnight stay at the Grand Hyatt New York, with modern amenities and complementary WiFi.

While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  


Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:


In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
