INTERCONTINENTAL NEW YORK TIMES SQUARE WOWS ON THE GREAT WHITE WAY
Times Square Star Hosts 66th Annual Tony Awards and is Preferred Hotel of Broadway Fantasy Camp
NEW YORK (April XX, 2012) – Located just steps away from New York’s bustling Theatre District, InterContinental New York Times Square Hotel has quickly become a much-frequented hot-spot for Broadway insiders. For the third year in a row, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has been named the official hotel partner of the 66th Annual Tony Awards and to commemorate the occasion the Times Square property has the honor of hosting the nominees’ events on property. Continuing its connection to the ‘biz, InterContinental New York Times Square is also proud to announce its new affiliation as the preferred hotel of Broadway Fantasy Camp.
This Times Square hotel makes for the ideal location to represent the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand as the official hotel partner of the 66th Annual Tony Awards. Honoring those recognized for their achievements in live theater, the hotel will host the Nominees Lunch in the property’s 4,000 square foot Gotham Ballroom. The night before Broadway's main event, the much anticipated Tony Eve Cocktail Party will also be held at InterContinental to once again celebrate the nominees and pay tribute to the year's Special Tony Award recipients.
Broadway Fantasy Camp is specially created for adults bitten by the show-biz bug and yearning to live out their Broadway dreams! Group sessions ranging from one to five days are lead by a team of theatre industry professionals including actors, directors, choreographers and musicians. Various sessions include: meeting with Tony Award winning Broadway performers; going behind the scenes at a major Broadway theater for a VIP backstage tour; rehearsing song & dance routines from the world’s best loved musicals; and living the actor’s life — from headshots and auditions (where everybody gets a part) to celebrating at your own opening night cast party. Providing star treatment to each participant, InterContinental New York Times Square is offering exclusive rates to those enrolling in Broadway Fantasy Camp. So book now – don’t let the curtain rise without you!
Keeping in step with the hotel’s Broadway partnerships is the new 5-6-7-8 Menu debuting this summer. The playful new happy hour menu will feature select cocktails and appetizer pairings priced at $5, $6, $7, and $8.
InterContinental New York Times Square offers a superb location on 44th Street in the heart of the Broadway Theater District, and a short stroll from Fifth Avenue shopping and world-class museums, making it an ideal location from which to explore the city. Opened in July 2010, the Times Square hotel features 36 stories with more than 600 rooms; Ça Va, a Todd English restaurant; 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including a 4,000-square foot Gotham Ballroom, and 10 smaller meeting rooms on one designated floor.
