The first few weeks of September bring back one of New York’s most anticipated events. New York Fashion Week (NYFW) starts on September 8th, and brings the hottest looks for the upcoming seasons to the runway. Are you a self-proclaimed fashion aficionado? Well come to the city for a day stay and check out a few shows. With HotelsByDay, you can have a daycation even a supermodel would be jealous of. Here’s a few suggestions on what to do before your favorite show starts.

1. Pamper Yourself

During fashion week, you see all the glitz and glamour of models on runway and celebrities on the red carpet. So why not treat yourself to a spa day before whichever show you go to that night. Nothing is better than getting a relaxing massage before a busy night out. At many of our NYC hotels, you can get spa treatments right in the hotel! We personally love the Primp Spa at Essex House in New York. Don’t get too pampered, you might get mistaken for a model thrown on the runway.

2. Treat Yourself


One of the greatest things about attending events and fashion shows are the gift bags you receive at the end. But if you aren’t going to any of these event, you should treat yourself anyways. Hey, you deserve a break from the everyday hustle and bustle. You saved money by booking a day stay, so why not splurge on some nice Prada shoes or a Kate Spade bag.

3. Stage Your Own Photo Shoot


With all of the wonderful new outfits and accessories you may have bought, or found inspiration from why not stage your own photo shoot. New York has so many  fantastic places where you can be a model for a day. The Highline, Central Park, and the roof deck at The Paul Hotel are three of our favorites. Grab a friend, a camera/phone, and a few outfit changes, and you’ll be racking up Instagram likes in no time.

4. Have a 5-Star Meal

New York City is a cultural mecca, so why not take advantage of that? Go to an amazing restaurant, and try a cuisine you love or one you’ve never had before. For American cuisine splurge a little and hit The Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous we recommend Chez Josephine (French), Aquavit (Scandinavian), Momofuku Ko (Japanese), and Nerai (Mediterranean/Greek).

There you have it! With HotelsByDay you can become a superstar this NYFW! So book a daystay at any of our fabulous NYC hotels today, and make NYC your runway!
