NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Cat lover or not, it's hard to deny the sweet story behind the feline resident tradition at The Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection®. In the 1930s, a stray cat wandered into this luxury hotel in New York City in search of food and shelter, and then-owner Frank Case's decision to take in the cat became more than just an act of kindness; it became a tradition.
Since then, the Times Square hotel has hosted a number of feline residents, and today guests will find Matilda greeting them throughout their stay. To celebrate the spirit of the hotel's giving nature, guests are treated to a very special stay with the Matilda Package, available until December 31, 2013, and offering a number of perks that are sure to make any traveler purr.
With this Times Square hotel deal, guests will receive a welcome letter from Matilda herself, two complimentary cocktails per night, complimentary breakfast for two guests per night, a replica plush of Matilda and a copy of Sandy Robins' Fabulous Felines: Health and Beauty Secrets for the Pampered Cat.
Matilda isn't any ordinary housecat; she gets weekly mail from friends around the globe, she celebrated her 2002 birthday with 150 of her closest friends, and when her collar was stolen, the entire city was talking about the "Algonquin Cat-Burglary." She also has her own email address, so guests of all ages can contact her before or after their stay at [email protected].
The Matilda Package is available seven nights a week, and a two-night minimum stay is required. Rates range between $404 and $904 a night and are offered in queen, deluxe queen, king and suite accommodations. To book, visit the website of this hotel near Restaurant Row in New York, or call 1-800-228-9290 in the US; be sure to enter/ask for promotional code ZJL.
