“THE OFFICE EXPERIENCE” IN WASHINGTON D.C. PARTNERS WITH BOOKING.COM TO GIVE FANS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER AT THE ICONIC DUNDER MIFFLIN PAPER COMPANY
While Travelers Probably Don’t Want to Spend the Night at their Office, the Global Travel Leader Bets They Probably Wouldn’t Mind an All-Nighter at “The Office Experience”
WASHINGTON D.C., November 2, 2022 – For the first time, fans of The Office will be able to pull an all-nighter in the world of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company at The Office Experience in Washington D.C. Through a partnership between global travel leader Booking.com and Original X Productions (OGX), two lucky pairs of fans will have the chance to book an all-nighter experience at the largest-ever official fan experience based on the beloved television show, The Office, created by OGX and Universal Live Entertainment in consultation with The Office’s U.S. creator, Greg Daniels. Whether fans are “a little stitious,” have recurring nightmares about Kevin’s chili spill, or just love inside jokes and would like to be part of one someday, they’ll find exactly what they’re looking for in this rare opportunity.
The all-nighter experience will include a one night stay at The Office Experience, dinner for two at a local D.C. restaurant and a private guided after-hours tour of the experience. Guests can even embark on a scavenger hunt with the chance to win their very own Dundie, complete with Stanley’s favorite soft pretzels. After all the fun, guests will be invited to hang out all night at Dunder Mifflin and enjoy everything else that The Office Experience has to offer until sunrise (and then they’ll be asked to leave). The experience will also include local accommodations at a property available on Booking.com – just in case the lucky bookers don’t actually want to rise and shine in a lifelike recreation of The Office.
Only two all-nighter experiences will be available, exclusively on Booking.com at The Office Experience. Beginning Wednesday, November 16 at 12 p.m. ET, pairs of fans can visit https://www.booking.com/hotel/us/pull-an-all-nighter-at-the-office-experience-in-washington-dc.html and book an all-nighter experience either on Saturday, November 19 or Sunday, November 20 for just $20.05 per couple (in honor of the year The Office premiered in the United States). All-nighters are bookable on a first come, first served basis – in the words of Michael Scott, “Early worm gets the worm!”
According to a recent Booking.com Travel Predictions survey, *50% of U.S. travelers reported working more hours and using fewer vacation days during the pandemic. So, what better way to kick off a renewed commitment to taking time off than with a getaway that enables fans to tell their boss they’re at The Office while still setting their OOO? With an array of incredible places to stay – from unique accommodations and homes to hotels and everything in between – Booking.com and OGX are making dreams of spending the night in the ultimate recreation of a favorite binge-worthy show a reality.
The Office Experience will be open through January 16, 2023 at the historic Woodies Building at 1020 G St. NW. The interactive two-story experience features 17 areas filled with original props and costumes, set re-creations and more, allowing fans to visit Scranton Business Park and other sites associated with the beloved series. Guests are invited to set foot inside the Dunder Mifflin office including Pam’s desk, Michael’s office and Ryan’s closet, as well as relive iconic moments such as Kevin’s chili spill and “beach day.” The Office Experience celebrates all the series’ major characters and also commemorates, among many other things, the Dundie Awards, the Michael Scott Paper Company and Jim and Pam’s love story.
