TOAST THE OSCARS WITH AN EXCLUSIVE PACKAGE AT THE CHATWAL NEW YORK, A VIRTUOSO® PREVIEW PROPERTY
NEW YORK (February 8, 2010) – The Chatwal New York, a Virtuoso® Preview property, has created an exceptional Oscar Party Package coinciding with the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, February 27, 2011, exclusively for guests who reserve their stay through a Virtuoso travel advisor. Located in the heart of Manhattan’s theater district on 44th Street, known as the “Great White Way,” The Chatwal New York is rich in the iconic style of the Deco era and – as the former site of America’s first theatrical club, The Lambs Club – is well-versed in celebrating the Hollywood elite. To travel like the glitterati, you only need a Virtuoso travel specialist to orchestrate your stay at The Chatwal. Paying homage to the heyday of the gilded age, The Chatwal New York’s Oscar Party Package recreates the glittering sophistication and glamour of yesteryear by encouraging guests to gather eight of their closest friends to join in on the Oscar festivities (maximum 10 guests total). The Oscar Party Package at The Chatwal is available on a one-off basis and leads in at $18,000 per couple, including*:
“Before Hollywood, there was Broadway and the Great White Way. The Lambs Club on 44th Street was the epicenter of the theatrical world, so I wanted to create a one-of-a-kind Oscar experience that speaks to those looking to revisit the golden age of glamour and sophistication in theater,” said Joel Freyberg, General Manager, The Chatwal New York. “What better way for guests to celebrate than watching the Oscars with glamourous friends in the privacy of a resplendent Penthouse suite overlooking the bright lights of the theatre district, with a glass of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin served by a private butler?” Following a September 2010 opening, The Chatwal New York nods to the elegance of a bygone era, offering unparalleled accommodations and a fresh perspective on the luxury experience. The circa-1905, Landmarked Stanford White-designed building was originally home to the famous Lambs Club, a veritable Who’s Who of American theatre. Beautifully restored and modernized by Master Architect and Designer Thierry Despont, The Chatwal’s 83 guest rooms boast custom-designed luxuries while meticulously recreating 1930’s Deco design, evoking the feeling of a moment preserved in time. Guestroom features include fine 400-thread count Frette linens and amenities from Asprey, exclusive to The Chatwal in New York. Paying homage to the building’s original purpose - showcasing talent and creativity, whether on stage, or in the kitchen and behind the bar - Chef Geoffrey Zakarian is behind The Lambs Club, the 80-seat restaurant at The Chatwal New York. The first member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World in Manhattan’s theater district, The Chatwal Hotel New York is the vision of Mr. Sant Chatwal, entrepreneur and Chairman and CEO of Hampshire Hotels & Resorts. With a goal to create intimate gathering places and rooms with the highest attention to detail – The Chatwal truly joins past with future, while maintaining a uniquely New York character. * Valid for a three night stay for two people during the dates of February 25 – March 2, 2011. Valid for only one booking, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Spa experience includes your choice of a 2 ½-hour spa package per person (for two people).
