Let’s think about this for a minute…this trip costs $99 bucks. Do you really think there’s a hotel room included here? The NYC Red-Eye trips depart on either a Thursday (or Friday) evening. We travel through the night and drop you off at or near Rockefeller Center at about 7 am. We pick you back up at 8 pm and travel through the night again, arriving back about 7 am on Saturday (or Sunday) morning. You can get your own hotel room, but why?
Your “hotel” on this trip is also your seat on the coach. Bring your pillow, blanket and jammies if you want. We stop 3 times on the way over, with the final stop at a travel plaza in New Jersey, about 1 hour from NYC. You can have breakfast, change clothes, take a shower and get yourself all spiffed up for your day in NYC!
Now, to answer your next question: Yes, the driver will have a hotel. He/she will be out in NJ, snoring away all the time you are in Times Square or in Chinatown, trying to buy a knock-off Coach purse. Don’t be calling the driver and waking him/her up! If you need to talk to the driver, wait until after 5 pm.
