R-U-N to this 'Stranger Things' hotel room


Whether you've yet to start or already finished Stranger Things 2, you've got some time to kill before the story continues. New York's Gregory Hotel has just the thing: A Stranger Things-themed hotel room, just in time for Halloween. SEE ALSO: Your'Stranger Things 2' binge watch will be better if you're decked out with'Stranger Things' swag The hotel package, described as "ex-stream-ly" cozy (this may be a missed opportunity for "eggs-stream-ly" and a partial Eggo pun), starts at $249 per night and includes in-room streaming via Chromecast for Stranger Things and more. The snacks and drinks are all Stranger Things themed – including plenty of Eggos – and there's a cute, complimentary "Friends Don't Lie" mug. But the coolest part is the wall tapestry of Joyce's house lights transmitting Will's message from the Upside Down.
