New York City’s most iconic toy store is unveiling a dream-come-true experience where your family can basically stay overnight inside a giant playroom!

F.A.O Schwarz is unveiling the Holiday Wishes F.A.O Suite Stay and Play Package, where your family of four can celebrate the holiday season by playing with some of their favorite toys overnight. You’ll get to stay in a two-bedroom, 1,336-square-foot Emerson Suite in Omni Berkshire Place that is packed with the ultimate selection of toys curated by F.A.O Schwarz personal shoppers. Favorites include the piano dance mat, a ride-on train with tracks and a life-sized plush gorilla.

At $4,000/night, it’s definitely what Christmas dreams are made of! And if any of the toys become must-haves, you can purchase them and take them home, too.


As part of the experience, you’ll have one of the infamous F.A.O Schwarz Toy Soldiers personally escort you to the store at Rockefeller Center where you’ll get a private tour. Next up, you’ll make a special guest appearance in the F.A.O Schwarz Opening Ceremony.


It’s the season of giving, so F.A.O Schwarz will give your family a $100 gift card for holiday shopping, plus a classic F.A.O Schwarz plush bear as a welcome gift upon arrival.

They will even throw in breakfast daily.

“Holiday shopping in New York City is a magical experience and we are excited for families to extend the fun with the F.A.O Suite that is sure to inspire awe and wonder for every guest,” said Jill Nordquist, chief marketing officer at MerchSource/ThreeSixty Group. “We’re bringing the FAO Schwarz experience to the Omni Berkshire Place to make holiday wishes come true!”


If you aren’t interested in staying inside the F.A.O Suite but you are a guest of Omni Berkshire Place, you will still find a playful selection of F.A.O Schwarz toys on the hotel’s room service menu. That sure beats ordering pancakes and eggs! You also have the option of buying the toys and bringing them home.

The Omni Berkshire Place hotel is located at 21 E. 52nd St. F.A.O Schwarz is nearby at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. If this is a dream you want to come true, make your reservations now by emailing the Holiday Concierge or calling 212-745-5022.

If you can’t stay the night, you can still check out the F.A.O Schwarz store in Rock Center, or why not head to American Dream or Macy’s this season to play at Toys ‘R’ Us?
