Hotel Penn in New York City has been dedicated to keeping guests smiling for the past century. This year marks the 100th birthday of an establishment that has been deemed The World’s Most Popular Hotel, and not just for its 10 decades in the hospitality industry. Hotel Penn has been given this title for many reasons throughout time, and the recent renovations don’t hurt either.
To celebrate its centennial anniversary, Hotel Penn is doing something unheard of: offering rooms for the rate that was offered back on the hotel’s opening day in 1919. Called the “Opening Day” offer, guests will get the chance to stay the night for $2.50. Starting on May 1st, the promotion will be given to the first 100 guests who make a booking online and follow the offer terms and conditions.
“When the hotel first opened its doors, guests were able to stay for an amazing rate of $2.50 and we thought this was the perfect opportunity to offer it again, albeit for a limited time. We want every visitor to the city to celebrate our anniversary along with us and personally experience the new Penn Plaza Collection,” added Gene Nicotra, Vice President and General Manager of Hotel Pennsylvania.
The Penn Plaza Collection is a brand new collection of rooms that caters to every visitor in Manhattan, no matter your trip plans. These rooms are spacious and filled with natural light, overlooking the Manhattan streets. Although the entire hotel has been renovated, the Plaza rooms are the ones featured by the 100th anniversary offer.
Older guests have raved about the services and amenities offered by the hotel and its staff. More than the average hotel, Penn has a lengthy list of accessible amenities for elderly or disabled guests. Some of these include lowered peep holes, wheelchair lifts and ramps, widened doors, roll-in showers, and mounted handrails.
To make the rooms even more accessible to everyone, Hotel Penn will provide you with an accessible hotel kit on request. This kit includes some essentials for guests who need a bit of extra help, including a TDD phone, a door knocker with LED flashlight, multifunction alarm clock with bed shaker, and adjustable phone amplifier.
As you can see, Hotel Penn caters to everyone, especially its older guests who have been loyal for decades. If you are brand new to the hotel and staying for the first time, you’ll feel like a part of the HP family from the moment you step into the lobby. There’s a reason that Penn has hosted more guests than any other hotel in the world.

It does not matter what attractions are included on your itinerary, there’s a good chance that Hotel Penn is within a short walk or minute-long taxi ride. The nearby sites will give you a true taste of the history of New York. You can also learn how Hotel Penn has played a role in that history by visiting a room on the 12th floor.

“As the World’s Most Popular Hotel, we are perfectly located in the heart of the city. Whether you are visiting from out of town for a tour or watching a sporting game across the street, we are happy to have host millions of visitors and look forward to million’s of additional visitors going forward,” added Nicotra.
