Antarctica Within Reach at New York Hotel

Published 09/07/2010

(New York, New York) - Over 100 years ago, Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott set out on one of the most stirring tales in the history of Antarctic exploration, a contest to reach the South Pole. Families who stay at the Buckingham Hotel in New York City can experience the thrill of the adventure by visiting the Race to the End of the Earth exhibit through a special partnership with the American Museum of Natural History.

Now through January 2, 2011, the Buckingham Hotel, located in the heart of Manhattan, hosts a weekend adventure with its Race to the End of the Earth package. Starting at $299, this deal includes four admission tickets into the exhibit (two adult; two children) and a one night stay, where visitors of all ages understand what it would have been like to travel to the coldest place on earth a century ago.

The aid of touch-screen exhibits, photographs, paintings, and rare historical artifacts from these expeditions place visitors in the midst of Antarctic exploration and research at the dawn of the last century.

This rate reflects a 25 percent savings. To book this special, simply call the toll-free number at (888) 511-1900 and ask for the Race to the End of the Earth promotion or visit and use the code, RACE.

Rates are subject to availability. This offer is valid through January 2, 2011.

The Buckingham Hotel is an intimate, 100-suite boutique property that provides guests with the unique experience of New York living combined with modern hotel style. Comfortable and chic with eat-in kitchens, spacious rooms, and public areas designed to echo the red velvet and dark wood of the hotel’s neighbor, Carnegie Hall, the Buckingham is city lodging at its finest.  Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the property is just seconds from Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as shopping destinations like Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Bergdorf Goodman and Barney’s — only a few of the lifestyle experiences that make New York City exceptional.
