This Hotel Suite Filled with FAO Schwarz Toys Is Like Sleeping in a Toy Store


Trending Now


If you’ve ever watched Tom Hanks dance Chopsticks on the floor piano, you’re well aware of the joys of FAO Schwarz. One hotel is taking the fun of the toy store and bringing it into the guest room.

FAO Schwarz has teamed up with the Conrad New York Midtown hotel to provide young guests a thrilling, toy-filled experience. Just for the holiday season the hotel will feature a guest suite filled with wall-to-wall toys from the famous toy store.

“We’ve always wanted to do something like this with a hotel. To imagine the joy and wonder that will captivate guests from the minute they open the door—it’s magical,” David Niggli, chief merchandising officer of FAO Schwarz, told Afar.

The 1,800-square foot FAO Schwarz Holiday Suite features a room full of toys including a toy gourmet kitchen, multiple train sets, working DJ turntables, hobby horses, 8- to 10-foot-tall stuffed animals, vintage Barbie dolls and yes, even that iconic dance-on floor piano. The room itself is essentially a private toy store because everything you see is available for purchase.

The special suite is now available to book between Nov. 18, 2019 and Jan. 5, 2020. Guests not staying in the room can still get in on the fun with the hotel’s in-room toy menu which will deliver on demand all season long. The FAO Schwarz Holiday Suite package starts at $3,000 per night. To book, email
