Money still can't buy you class, but it can buy you a night with Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
Real Housewives of New York City fans know there's no party like a Countess party—and now fans visiting the Big Apple have the opportunity to party with the Countess. The cost? A cool $8000.
LuAnn has revealed that she's partnered with the famed Warwick hotel for The Countess: Hostess of New York, which offers "guests the opportunity to experience the things I love to do in New York City," LuAnn recently told The Resident magazine. "Guests booking this package will receive a unique overnight stay where I first welcome them with a meet and greet cocktail party curated with my favorite cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, then take them out for an evening on the town."
The package that includes a 90-minutes cocktail reception with the Countess starts at $4000 per night for a minimum of two nights. But for half that price—$2,000 per night—you can have the package, minus the cocktails with LuAnn. Hey, maybe you can run into her in the streets of NYC!
We have various archetypal options available including Downtown Diva, Broadway Babe and Chic Connoisseur.
LuAnn said she curated the entire experience with specific personalities in mind. "Within this overnight package, we have various archetypal options available including Downtown Diva, Broadway Babe and Chic Connoisseur—each of which features my proposed itinerary items such as dinner at Bagatelle, night cocktails at the Boom Boom Room, a private tour of the MoMA or tickets to Kinky Boots," she says.
Although she was born in Connecticut and gained her title after marrying a French aristocrat, the Countess says she is a New Yorker through and through and the perfect person to play hostess to the city's guests.
"I love the pace, and the fact that it's a melting pot and everybody has a chance to make it," she says. "It's a nonstop, never ending carnival. There's always something going on and there are always people in the street. There’s so much culture and beauty. I love to be in it and live in the middle of it all."
The Countess: Hostess of New York package at the Warwick hotel is available through March 31st.
