The Ex-stream-ly Cozy Package includes an array of Stranger Things-themed fun, including a Google Chromecast in-room streaming service to binge-watch season two of Stranger Things on Netflix, and curated Stranger Things snacks and beverages. Parents, enjoy the Porch Pounder Chardonnay, reminiscent of the Yellow Egg, canned wine and a variety of kid-friendly treats.


If the show leaves you a little rattled, Healthy Skoop Sleep Protein will help you and the kids get to sleep. Enjoy Stranger Things swag, including a novelty mug changing colors when you pour hot liquid inside to reveal Will’s message from the Upside Down. Swag and merchandise may vary, but other rooms have included Eleven’s favorite, Eggo waffles, for you and the kids to snack on between shows, a fleece blanket, pillowcase and a “Friends Don’t Lie” mug.


Enjoy the expertly decorated room, including a lit-up wall tapestry displaying Will’s message from the Upside Down.


Are your kids more the fans in the family? Book a special package just for them in one room and opt for your own room so you can make a night of it and head out on the town while they binge watch. Catch up on the spooky stories you missed over breakfast and enjoy a fall day in the city with the whole family.


The show may have premiered Oct. 27, but the binge-watching fun has just begun at The Gregory Hotel. Packages will be available long after the hype dies down as guests can book a Stranger Things room through Aug. 30, 2018. Check out the direct link here to see the room and book directly.
