Go Inside Trump International Hotel, the Inspiration and Set for 'Tower Heist'
Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck and Alan Alda hit the big screen today in Tower Heist, about employees at a luxury residence tower in NYC, owned by a Madoffesque kingpin, who decide to steal $20 million dollars from their boss after finding out he embezzled their pension funds.
The building in the movie is based on the Trump International Hotel and Tower, located at One Central Park West in New York City. They even filmed most of the movie's exterior shots at Trump Tower, including one of the movie's biggest scenes which takes place during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
But, to get the shots they needed, the film's crew recreated the parade outside of Trump Tower one weekend last December, confusing hundreds of NYC tourists (the locals were less fazed).
Trump Hotel and Tower is offering a Thanksgiving Vacation Package that will give guests amazing views of the real Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and a chance to stay in the hotel that inspired the movie.
The package includes a stay in one of the hotel's One Bedroom City View Suites and tickets to view the parade outside the hotel. To get the booking code and check out rates, visit Trumpintl.com.
