Hyatt scores Touchdown for Grey Cup fun!

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Hyatt Regency Calgary celebrated the 2009 Grey Cup Festival in style. Brookline managed media relations for the hotel, including four stations broadcasting live for several days leading up to the big game. The hotel’s football-inspired festivities included a Grey Cup festival tent complete with four plasma TVs, bar and a delectable menu of half-time meals and snacks.

Chefs from the hotel’s own Thomsons Restaurant and Sandstone Lounge cooked up football favourites on Breakfast Television Calgary (BTV) that were enjoyed by CFL veterans Reggie Holmes, Herm Harrison and Damon Allen. Also on BTV, estheticians from Hyatt Regency Calgary’s Stillwater Spa treated football fans, military guests and Stamps alumni to a relaxing manicure. Some of the special spa guests even wore blue and green nail polish in honour of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Montreal Alouttes!

Hyatt Regency Calgary also participated in a long-standing Stampeders Grey Cup tradition when staff and guests welcomed a four-legged friend – Tuffy the horse. Tuffy visited the Hyatt’s hotel lobby, creating picture-perfect photo ops for guests and media.
