Aladdin’s Times Square Palace Suite at Hilton New York Times Square

Right in the middle of all the action, this suite is a nod to the Aladdin the Musical Broadway performance your family can catch nearby. This suite channels all the elegance of Princess Jasmine and the magic of Agrabah with its plush, colorful, jewel-toned design. Throughout the suite, spot show prints and sketches from production, a magic lamp in one corner and a cobra in the other.


The corner suite features a king-sized bed and pull-out couch, and booking the suite gets you welcome cocktails for the parents and welcome mocktails for the kids, plus a Genie wake-up call, breakfast for four, welcome gift for the kids, and parking.

The Barbie Suite at Hilton Bogota Corferias

This limited-time suite is available until summer 2024, so you have plenty of time to book your stay. This Barbie-themed suite pours on the pink, starting with the bright pink door that stands out in the 13th-floor’s hallway. Inside, Barbie and company are featured everywhere you look, from the artwork to the coffee table, pillows to the walls. Guests enjoy gifts including a Barbie doll, tutu and pink glasses.


“Our design for this suite is inspired by the fans who grew up with the iconic Barbie doll. From the moment they arrive at the hotel, we want them to feel transported into a Barbie utopia. In this suite, every corner is tailored to create a sense of childhood nostalgia,” said John Freudenthaler, general manager, Hilton Bogota Corferias.
