Pope Francis’ Visit is a Once-in-a-Lifetime New York Event
DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan welcomes visitors who come to our NY Hotel for Pope Francis’ visit and other exciting New York Events.
There are many thrilling Events that New Yorkers are able to witness first hand. One such New York Event is the historic visit of Pope Francis. NY Hotels, including DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan, welcome guests who come to celebrate the visit and, for the fortunate few who have tickets, to see and hear this inspirational figure.
The Pope’s 3-city tour includes Washington D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia. Pope Francis is hugely popular with both Catholics and non-Catholics, and tickets to hear him offer mass or watch the Papal motorcade were coveted treasures. Some of the tickets, such as the tickets to attend the Pope’s mass at Madison Square Garden, were only available through parishes throughout the state. Tickets to the special service at the 9/11 Memorial site were only available to members of the 9/11 community such as first responders and survivors.
Even many who could not acquire tickets to one of the Pope’s scheduled Events have headed to New York for the hope of catching a glimpse of the Papal motorcade or even of the Pope himself. In addition to the Events mentioned above, Pope Francis will also offer prayers at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, address the United Nations General Assembly, and visit Our Lady Queen of Angels School in Harlem.
A visit from Pope Francis or other high level figures can cause disruption in the already congested traffic patterns in New York City. Our NY Hotel is ideally located in Midtown Manhattan and within walking distance of many NYC Restaurants, Shopping, and Attractions. If you’ll be in town during this New York Event, you’ll be able to enjoy your visit without having to brave the traffic. Our helpful staff will be happy to offer suggestions about venues that are within walking distance as well as those that are easily accessible via the City’s public transportation system.
The staff at DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan is thrilled to be able to witness this once-in-a-lifetime Event. Whether you’re coming to see the Pope, to attend another New York Event, to attend a business function, or just to enjoy a getaway with your family, you will find that our NY Hotel is a perfect choice.
