Santa Paws is Coming to Town, December 11 and 12, at Kimpton's Eventi Hotel

Eventi Hotel has teamed up with the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals to bring you two days of furry fun and a showcase of cuddly critters up for adoption

New York, NY – Wednesday, December 8, 2010 – On December 11 and 12 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Kimpton's Eventi Hotel is holding their first seasonal holiday celebration, Santa Paws, honoring their loyal guests and their best four-legged buddies. Visitors are encouraged to bring their pets for photo opportunities with Santa and his little helper Elf, as well as bring their own cameras to capture all the fun.

The hotel will be decorated with glistening holiday cheer, including a Christmas tree with all the trimmings, and will also serve as a drop-off location for animal food donations for the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. As part of Santa Paws celebrations at the hotel, loveable creatures who are available for adoption from Posh Pets Rescue will be there with Santa and his helper Elf. There will be light refreshments and snacks for the pet owners and homemade treats and water bowls for the pets. A drawing will also be held for one lucky patron to win a free night stay at the hotel with man's best friend!

Visitors are advised to ensure their pets are leashed and are fully comfortable with crowds before bringing them to Eventi for the Santa Paws celebration.

Kimpton hotels are known for their "hosPETality" for owners and their pets and Kimpton guests receive a complimentary dog bed, dog bowls, and treats to pamper the pet during their stay. Kimpton also offers numerous packages and amenities for your furry friend, like a pet massage for the stressed pet after a long day of traveling, or dog sitting/walking services when you are out on the town.
