I’d say the most common piece of feedback I hear about manrepeller.com is: “It’s a cool website and all, but how am I supposed to sleep inside of it?” Well! Now you can! (Not literally, but that sounds uncomfortable anyway.)

For one weekend only, from April 6th to 8th, Man Repeller is taking over four floors of the Freehand Hotel for the world’s greatest two-day sleepover extravaganza. We’re calling it Hotel Man Repeller (bet you didn’t see that one coming!) and — hold on a sec, just opening this letter…it’s an invitation: you are all invited!

Sign up here if you’ve read enough and just want a ticket. (Not to rush you but Camp MR sold out fast, so… !!!)

If you’re still with me, kindly close your eyes for a moment and keep reading along: Imagine a weekend where the content and comment section converges IRL. You know those brick-and-mortars we’re always yammering on about and the baked goods in our Instagram stories? You know those streets where we shoot our MR editorials and that collection of our favorite iced coffee locations? We want to show you all of that and more (I’m trying to keep some surprises but I’m also not saying there won’t be cocktails, shindigs and so much swag that you might want to pack a half-empty suitcase) because the point of this extended party is threefold: to introduce you to our New York (1), while getting to know you-the-community better (2), while also sometimes butting the eff out as you all meet, mingle and hang with each other (3).

We’ve planned so much fun stuff that the word “fun” doesn’t cut it, but also, we want this experience to feel like yours. So consider Hotel Man Repeller your home-base and our city, your oyster.

Now let’s talk details.

When is it again? April 6th through April 8th, 2018!

Where is it? The Freehand Hotel, New York: 23 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10010. (It’s VERY COOL. I spent an entire day working there and it was a true delight. It’s in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, which is centrally located and readily accessible by subway. Here’s a map! And don’t worry, we’ll arm you with plenty of directions when you arrive. We’re here to make this plug-and-party-easy for you.)

How much is it and where can I sign up? All of that can be found in this link right here.

Food! Are you going to feed me? As a woman who prioritizes this question above all else (including dates and location), trust me when I tell you that there will be drinks and snacks and maps to all the best local spots. Because we want this trip to feel like your adventure, meals are up to you. Round up a crew of new friends all craving the same food — and ask us for recommendations!

Wait — I have a million other questions! Great. Our FAQ page can answer them!

So excited I can’t breathe. Here’s a link to Hotel Man Repeller one more time, and see you soon!

    • Eliza

      Same here!!

  • Can you come along without staying in the hotel? As I already live in NYC…..

    • Crissy

      I live in NYC too but feel like this would be so fun. Found this in the FAQ:

      Q

      I live in New York — can I stay at Hotel MR, or is that weird?
      A

      It’s definitely not weird. It’s a staycation, and a bunch of Team MR are doing it, too. (Plus, HOTEL BATHROBES.) However! We don’t have separate pricing for locals and highly recommend you come sleep over.

  • Crissy

    I had his dream last night where I scored an internship at MR. I’m a 40-year old stay at home mom, so probably not your typical intern demographic. I came up with this ridiculously good outfit to wear on my first day at work. It involved a light blue suit with a red blouse with a long Colonel Sanders-esque bow tie, and it should have been a disaster but it was awesome. I swear. And then the amazing MR team
    styled me up with amazing jewelry for a party after work and I felt like a million bucks. When I woke up, I was grinning and craving fried chicken and a biscuit. And now this sleepover party?? It’s just too much. I’m overwhelmed.

    • Eliza

      Incredible

    • we should totes be roomies 🙂

      • Crissy

        wait, should we??? 🙂

        • i just went ahead and booked already… think my little fam will join for a weekend in the city.

          • Crissy

            sweet! i think i’m going to book it too. it’s a staycation for me. but i deserve one!

          • Andrea Hill

            Girl if you need a roommate ‘holler’

          • laurenashley44

            Same – they’re out of the solo traveler option but triples are still available, and split three ways it’s the same cost as solo traveler. I’m down to book ASAP!

          • Adey

            singles are gone but I don’t mind booking a triple with others or double!

          • laurenashley44

            Do you want to book? Triples are gone too, we can do a double!

          • Adey

            Yes I would! Let’s do it

          • laurenashley44

            Perfect! I can book or venmo you asap. Email me laurenashley.hall@icloud.com !!

          • laurenashley44

          • Adey

            Book it! Just sent you an email too – YESSSS I’m so excited this will be happening. Lauren, you’re my fave gal and I already have a gift ready for you upon meeting.

          • laurenashley44

            Booked! I am so excited to have found a roommate so thank YOU!!

          • Adey

            HOW CAN I LIKE THIS A MILLION TIMES THOUGH?

    • Beatriz Cantão Borges

      anyone needing roommates to a double or triple room!?! :))))

  • v serious question… am I too old? this will be the weekend of my 34th birthday and I really want in…

    • Hanna

      Just read the FAQ:

      Q
      Who’s invited?

      A
      You are! So is your friend, your partner, your grandmother, your pen pal and your cool neighbor who you’d like to get to know better. Anyone who’s down for fun, new friends, adventure and the best weekend ever is more than welcome.

      • I saw the 40 year old woman’s reply so I am now feeling less like an odd duck.
        thank you

        • Hanna

          I just saw your reply to Crissy! This is exactly why I love MR – you saying you want to be roomies. Have a great time!!

          • Crissy

            For the record, I’ll be 41 by the time this rolls around. 😏

          • jolene73

            44 and nearly 45…age ain’t nuthin’ but a number 🙂

    • Madeline C

      I just impulsed purchased this because it is also my birthday weekend (29)! Do it and we can celebrate together!!!!

      • Rachel

        WOW this is also the weekend before my birthday!!! (My actual birthday is on the 10th)

    • kellymcd

      This is the weekend after my bday and I’m seriously considering this a my self gifted bday gift

    • Amelia Diamond

      absolutely not! no such thing as too old!

    • Emily

      my bday weekend as well!

  • Charlie

    What a great idea! It might sound a bit weird but I often think about how cool the MR comment section is and wishing I would meet more of you IRL. I even checked tickets… but unfortunately not happening at the moment. Hope this will be one of many. Or maybe try a cool place Europe? Wish you all an incredible time. And whoever designed the website – WOW!

  • Katherine Lamb

    Similar to Sarah, I also made a typo when I was signing up due to my hands shaking and my heart racing!!!!! I signed up solo! SEE YOU THERE!

    • Amelia Diamond

      i am so excited reading these comments!!

      • Adey

        I’ll BE THERE. In the actual flesh. All thanks to my MR IRL friend Lauren Ashley!

    • Eliza

      ME TOOOOO!

  • omg fomo already.

  • tshirtshark

    I’m way poor! But this sounds fun. You guys should do mini events like Ladies Get Paid does. For us bottom dwellers…

    • Daniella

      Wooo bottom dwellers! Lol

  • rhonda compton

    so, as a 49’er, and as someone who has zero stylish friends who would want to accompany me, and also as someone who pays her own mortgage, i need a roomie! because $300-sumpn<$600-sumpn. do i apply for a menopausal roomie here? or wait for some random tinder-MR match?

    • Olivia Lauren Hawk Moore

      Here! Hoping to find two friends for a triple!!

      • rhonda compton

        i went ahead and booked a private room. total impulse purchase, and non-refundable. i hope you find a roomie!

      • Beatriz Cantão Borges

        hey still needing? I totally wanna do it

    • Olivia Lauren Hawk Moore

      Email me if you want to go in together!! There are a few other people that wanted the quad, but the triple is the same price if there are 3 of us!!
      Olivia.hawk27@gmail.com

  • I remember wishing I could go to Camp MR last time around so I booked a room immediately after I saw Haley’s post on Instagram! A few friends that were going to come realized they had other obligations so I was getting nervous about booking as a solo traveler (usual thoughts of — omg what if I don’t make any friends?) SO I decided to check the comments on this post and I was just being silly. Everyone in the MR community is so lovely and I cannot wait for this weekend!! If anyone else is in the NYC area and attending this solo and might want to meet up before — I am always down 🙂

    • Madeline C

      THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME – haha, I kind of quickly just decided to do it on my own because it’s rewarding/scary/awesome to push yourself out of your comfort zone sometimes. Then I got nervous like “what if I spend the whole time alone!?!?” came to comment section and was put at ease.

    • Sophia Hatchitt

      Hi Amber! Super late on this post as I have been traveling, moving to NYC, getting excited for Hotel MR this weekend…anyway I am attending alone and I know that its a little late in the game to meet up before but would am excited to meet you this weekend!

  • Jennifer

    Please host an MR event in LA! I promise we don’t bite!!!

  • snakehissken

    I NEED A ROOMMATE 🙁

    • Olivia Lauren Hawk Moore

      • Andrea Hill

        Ill take that triple! 🙂

      • Beatriz Cantão Borges

        please I totally want to!!!

      • Beatriz Cantão Borges
        • Andrea Hill

          This enail doesnt work

    • Olivia Lauren Hawk Moore

      Email me if ya want, we can coordinate the ish out of this
      Olivia.hawk27@gmail.com

    • Aleda Johnson

      Email me at lkjohnson88@gmail.com if you still need someone to room with!

  • Olivia Kohlstaedt

    DREAM WEEKEND

  • Jess

    I’ve never even felt cool enough to comment before. But here I am booking a room, so see everyone soon?

    • Rachel

      Same thing girl! Just booked a room myself!

      • Lauren

        Same! Can’t wait to meet everyone! 🙂

    • Izzy

      • Leandra Medine

        • Jaimie Piotrowicz

          Yas to Cruise MR *raises hand emphatically*

    • Adey

      OMG – that would blow our minds LITERALLY.

  • Caroline Christianson

    I have an exam the following week but COULDNT STAY AWAY yayyyy see you all there!!!!! Xoxoxoxox

  • Lexie Fuell

    Probably going to take money out of the fund my grandparents left me for “education” for this.. the only education I’ll probably ever need!

  • Caroline Christianson

    Already commented, but I’d like to add: Businesses have an opportunity, just like people, to say, ‘What are we here for?’ and it’s so amazing to see Man Repeller decide it’s for the workers (who are clearly so happy!), customers and broader community instead of a bunch of numbers that create a bottom line. So much love, so excited!

  • Jessica Barthel

    Ack This falls on my daughter’s 4th birthday weekend! Desperately want to go but will be with you ladies in spirit as I’m cutting cake for a bunch of crazy 4 year olds!

  • Andrea Hill

  • hannah

    **** Need a roomie?****
    Hi all! I’m looking to share a double/triple if anyone is down. 29, living in NYC already, and totally excited for a MR-immersive weekend. I’m not actively using insta at the moment, but my aact is @hanbanesty.
    Email me if you’re interested!! So much want to make this happen for all of us that can’t quite afford/reason a single room: hannah.esty at gafg dot com

  • Katie

    Totally can’t afford this, but I just booked my room because I have to be there! Loved hearing about all the Camp Man Repeller fun, and promised myself I’d join if there was another opportunity. Yeah!

  • Ally

    I’m so sad I can’t go! This sounds so amazing, but my sad college budget defffff won’t afford me a staycation this Spring. I was talking to my roommate about this though and she said that her internship did a similar retreat a few seasons back, and they had an option where locals could pay to join individual activities or events but didn’t have to stay at the hotel. Maybe that could be a thing in the future 🙂

  • MCJ

    Anyone down to share a single? Everything is sold out and I can’t miss this craaazzyy, fun weekend!!

  • liis

    SEE YOU THERE
