Last minute deals to US

[January 16th 2009]

Last minute city breaks to the US are on offer in time to enjoy the celebrations marking the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

An estimated five billion people around the globe are expected to be watching as Barack Obama is inaugurated as 44th President of the USA on January 20th. If you fancy soaking up the unique atmosphere and being part of the celebrations that are expected to continue for up to five days around the country, Thomson Worldwide has some last minute deals to the dynamic cities of New York and Chicago.

In New York Thomson is offering four nights at the Wellington Hotel room only plus return flights with British Airways departing on January 18th from just £399 per person. The Wellington Hotel is conveniently located for many of New York’s iconic sights, being just one block from Carnegie Hall and a short walk from Fifth Avenue, Times Square, Central Park and the Lincoln Centre.

An alternative in New York is the modern Thirty Thirty Hotel, situated close to the Empire State building, Gramercy Park, Murray Hill, and Park Avenue. Prices for four nights room only including return flights also leaving on January 18th start from £429 per person.

Chicago might not quite have the glitz and glamour of New York, but it is still a vibrant, exciting city in its own right and is ideal for a shopping or theatre break.

If you’re looking for a room with a view the Essex Inn in Chicago may well appeal. Many of the hotel’s rooms have spectacular views of the lakefront and the city. Four nights room only accommodation plus return flights with British Airways starts from £459 per person departing on January 18th.

Thomson Worldwide’s final city break deal is to the Hilton in Chicago. This huge hotel overlooks Lake Michigan and the beautiful Grant Park and is close to fantastic shops, restaurants, theatres and museums.

For shopaholics the Hilton Chicago even offers the complimentary Magnificent Mile shopping shuttle. The hotel has its own onsite Irish pub, Kitty O’Shea’s, plus fine cuisine in the Pavilion restaurant. Prices for four nights room only with return flights with BA leaving on January 18th start from £499 per person.
