NEW YORK (WXIN) – All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas this year is to invite you to New York City for a holiday weekend of a lifetime.
The so-called “Queen of Christmas” teamed up with Booking.com to give fans a chance to book Mariah’s Ultimate Holiday Experience in New York City.
The package will have you “feeling emotions” with its three-night stay for two at The Plaza, as well as cocktails and a photo shoot at Carey’s Tribeca penthouse, and tickets to her “Merry Christmas To All!” concert at Madison Square Garden.
The long weekend takes place between Dec. 16-19, and is jam-packed with an itinerary curated by Carey herself. It also includes dinner reservations at some of her favorite restaurants and a stop atop one of the Big Apple’s most iconic destinations: Rockefeller Center.
“Christmas in New York is an experience of a lifetime, so I partnered with Booking.com to create a special holiday-themed travel experience in my hometown during the most wonderful time of the year,” said the award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and record producer.
“For one time only, I’m giving two fans the opportunity to have an unforgettable and magical extravaganza! I hope the bookers will enjoy the chance to see my concert at Madison Square Garden, visit the Top of the Rock, eat at my favorite restaurants, and stay at a luxurious NYC hotel,” she said.
The booking will open at 5 p.m. on Dec. 14 and will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. It will cost only $20.19, in honor of the year Carey’s holiday mega-hit “All I Want for Christmas” first reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Here is everything the three-day experience will include:
- Cocktail hour in a private space at Carey’s New York City penthouse apartment
- A professional Christmas card photo shoot on her rooftop terrace
- A three-night stay in a Grand Luxe King room at The Plaza, a Fairmont Hotel

“All I Want for Christmas for You” earned three Guinness World Records in 2019: highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard US Hot 100 by a solo artist, most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (female), and most weeks in the U.K. singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song.
The Recording Industry Association of America also awarded Carey the Diamond Award in 2021 for “All I Want for Christmas is You” after reaching 10 million in sales and streaming units in the United States.
