If you’ve ever wanted to experience tried-and-true NYC luxury without completely depleting your bank account, now’s your time to shine. The Knickerbocker—a New York City icon located in the heart of Midtown—is letting us in on their 109th anniversary celebration with a sale that’s impossible to ignore. For the momentous occasion, the hotel is offering the original opening rate for a limited number of rooms for one night (October 23rd). Just how cheap are we talking? Try $2.

The Knickerbocker first opened its doors on October 23rd, 1906, and has since been dubbed the originator of two VIP essentials: the Martini and the velvet rope. The best part of it all is that you don’t have to sit in front of a computer refreshing screen after screen for the opportunity to snag one of these rooms. From now until October 16th, you can enter your name online for a chance to book one of the promotional rates. To enter, head on over to The Knickerbocker website.
