Courtyard New York Manhattan/Fifth Avenue is excited to get in on the fun this fall by hosting fans during the New York Comic-Con, happening Oct. 9-12, 2014, at Javits Center. The hotel will offer free face painting for all comic enthusiasts, whether staying at the hotel or not, on Oct. 11-12 (Saturday and Sunday) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help convention-goers get into character. This local activation follows on the heels of the Courtyard brand providing customized experiences at the hottest events earlier this year at SXSW and Comic-Con San Diego.

As the second largest pop culture convention in America, New York Comic-Con attracts crowds of thousands to discover the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, toys, video games, television and movies. Bringing together the major players in the entertainment industry, panels and autograph sessions will be featured, giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite creators. Screening rooms also will be set up to give attendees a sneak peek at films and television shows before they even hit the silver screen.

Travelers heading to the East Coast for this spirited event will discover a deal so exciting that they may think it's a fantasy. The Parking Package in New York City is far from animated, though. Guests staying at the Fifth Avenue hotel will reap the benefits of deluxe accommodations plus receive 24-hour parking during their stay with a complimentary valet service, a great deal for travelers looking for value in parking in the city, along with the ease of valet service.

Visitors looking to experience more of the city after the convention will appreciate the hotel's convenient location to New York City's top shopping. Whether seeking a specific designer purchase or simply window shopping, hotel visitors will have easy access to the renowned Fifth Avenue, a must-visit attraction for all tourists.

Following a long day of adventure and exploration, visitors are anxious to relax and unwind in comfortable accommodations. With only seven rooms per floor, guests will get a sound night's sleep in quarters that boast luxury bedding and modern technologies. Mini-refrigerators, pull-out sofa beds and coffee makers are among the many thoughtful amenities Comic-Con guests will appreciate.

Visitors looking to take advantage of parking package should book reservations using promotional code TRS online or by calling 1-800-228-9290. The Parking Package in NYC is valid through Aug. 11, 2015 and runs $224 to $629 per night depending on what nights rooms are booked.
