Tricks and Treats: NYC's Maritime Hotel Offers a Sinful Deal
By Max Berlinger
Those who live in New York know that city-dwellers use Halloween as a shameless excuse to satisfy prurient behavior on a more public scale in the guise of good natured revelry'. Those who don't live nearby nor haven't visited during the Halloween season should definitely add an October visit to NYC to their bucket list.
In fact, this year might be the perfect time to take us up on that offer. The Maritime Hotel, right in the heart of New York's Chelsea, is offering a month-long deal called the Seven Deadly Sins Package, featuring the perfect excuse to indulge in the glory of all the seven deadliest of sins. Enjoy a gluttonous seven-course meal at the hotel's critically acclaimed restaurant Matsuri, a wrathful, lust-filled night in one of the swank guest bedrooms and an enviably slothful morning lounging before your 2pm check-out -- and at only $495 + tax per night you won't be feeling too greedy.
