They’ve delivered kittens, puppies, ice cream, pancakes, and of course people, but in Uber’s latest partnership, a joint effort with Mr & Mrs Smith, the rideshare pioneer will dole out extravagant stays in New York City boutique hotels.
Starting tomorrow (6 December) at 11am EST, Uber users in NYC can enter a promo code to unlock the chance to win a one-night stay in one of Mr & Mrs Smith’s Manhattan hotels. The eight participating properties are the New York Edition, the Standard, High Line, 11 Howard, the Standard, East Village, the Viceroy Central Park, the Ludlow, Hotel Hugo and the Roxy Hotel. Additionally, winners will nab a silk sleeping mask from the queen of luxury loungewear, Olivia von Halle.
The giveaway is open to anyone in NYC’s five boroughs, so if you’re in the city or you know someone who is, here’s the scoop: enter GIVINGNYC16 into the payment section of Uber’s app. You’ll then see a special Mr & Mrs Smith pop-up – tap that between 11am and 3pm EST, and if you connect to a car, you’re a winner. Your fortuitous Uber will arrive bearing a hotel voucher and the mask – there will be 200 winners in total.
For non-New Yorkers, there’s still good news! You can win a one-night stay in a Loft Suite at Hotel Hugo, an Olivia von Halle mask and $100 in Uber credit (a prize worth $1,000 in total). Follow @smithhotels on Twitter and find out how to enter at 4:30pm EST tomorrow.
And if you don’t win, we still suggest a staycation (of course you’ll be on the hook for your booking… there’s no such thing as a free breakfast (with champagne) in bed). But when you have access to an alpine yurt with fondue (the Standard, East Village), a skating rink with a bar in striking distance (the Standard, High Line) or live music on the regular (the Roxy), you’re never a loser.
