NEW YORK, NY. May 5, 2016 - Just in time for spring, The Sherry-Netherland, the iconic hotel at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, is offering a “Picnic in Central Park Vacation Package,” that includes a luxurious basket filled with delectable goodies that guests can enjoy in the world famous park just across the street.

Guests who book this two-night stay offer in a room or suite receive picnic accessories including a deluxe insulated hamper and a soft blanket, both adorned with the hotel's gold crest, to enjoy a pop-up al fresco experience. The basket is filled with a hand-selected assortment of extravagant treats such as delicious cheeses, savory charcuterie, fresh fruit, and gourmet cookies, all accompanied by a bottle of wine. Known as New York City's “backyard” and just steps from the hotel, Central Park offers a picture-perfect picnic setting, from lounging on the Great Lawn, boating on the Lake, or taking in a horse and carriage ride.

A timeless New York City classic, The Sherry-Netherland offers guests world-class accommodations and European-style service at this iconic Central Park hotel topped by its signature elaborate Gothic minaret. The mural on the ceiling of the intimate and hushed lobby was inspired by Raphael's frescoes in Cardinal Bibbiena's Loggetta in the Vatican Palace and in 2014 was refurbished to reflect its original splendor. From exemplary service - including concierge assistance, elevator attendants and valet parking - to spacious, individually decorated rooms and suites, many with decorative fireplaces, a stay at The Sherry has been an expression of privilege since 1927. All accommodations feature high ceilings, marble bathrooms, with some featuring the original pedestal sinks with silver-plated faucets from the 1920s. The famed Harry Cipriani restaurant, located off the lobby, is a near duplicate of the famed Harry's Bar in Venice, and serves classic Venetian food and Cipriani's signature Bellini cocktail. In January 2016 The Sherry-Netherland was named the #1 Top Hotel in the United States in 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice™ awards for Hotels, as well as the #22 Top Hotel in the World, and #23 Best Hotel for Service in the U.S. The hallmarks of Travelers' Choice winners are remarkable service, quality and value, all characteristics the Sherry-Netherland graciously possesses. The hotel is a proud member of both Preferred Hotels & Resorts, and the Mantis Collection.

Sales & Marketing: Promoting Peace of Mind

As the hotel industry transitions to a more familiar position, it is still necessary for hotels to emphasize in their marketing the health protocols they have implemented to ensure guest safety and wellness. Above all, guests need to be reassured that every precaution is being taken to safeguard their well-being. Additionally, there are other marketing strategies that hotels can implement as a way to boost their business. For example, neighborhood marketing is a tactic that relies heavily on appealing to local audiences. Incentives targeting locals can fulfill the craving that some people have for time away from home, but aren't ready to hop on a plane. Another viable strategy is to promote experiences in nature. After being stuck inside for so long, many people are looking for hotels to help them re-connect with the great outdoors. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
