“Todd and Michelle really enjoyed their time in Brooklyn—they had never thought of coming to Brooklyn for a New York City trip.” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn's general manager.
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Todd and Michelle, a hip 30-something couple from Missouri, first visited NU Hotel Brooklyn under unusual circumstances. The pair arrived at the boutique hotel on the corner of Smith and Atlantic Streets with a full television camera crew and were given an envious task: visit three New York hotels and choose their favorite. The challenge was part of an upcoming episode of “Top Spot,” a new Travel Channel reality show, which will air on August 16. In this episode, NU Hotel Brooklyn will make its national television debut as a contender for Todd and Michelle’s hotel of choice.
Will NU Hotel Brooklyn be the Top Spot? The hotel isn’t telling — but it is hosting a Facebook invite-only viewing party featuring prizes and drinks in Misdemeanor, its lobby bar and restaurant.
“Todd and Michelle really enjoyed their time in Brooklyn—they had never thought of coming to Brooklyn for a New York City trip. We think our local vibe, service culture, and casual professionalism will give us to the edge to be New York’s Top Spot.” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager. “We plan to have a lot of fun watching the episode together at Misdemeanor. There will be NU-themed prizes and complimentary sangria. We are really excited to celebrate NU Hotel Brooklyn’s national television debut with our Facebook family.”
“Top Spot,” which premiered on July 12, 2012, was created by the producers of HGTV’s “House Hunters.” In each episode, a couple spends one day touring three properties in the same destination to determine which hotel they would like to stay at during their upcoming vacation. At the end of each episode, the couple chooses which hotel they prefer and the winner is declared the “Top Spot.” In addition to their visit to NU Hotel Brooklyn, Todd and Michelle also visited two Manhattan hotels: The Carlyle Hotel and the Jane Hotel.
NU Hotel’s Facebook-exclusive viewing party begins promptly at 10 p.m. on August 16. The hotel will be sending out invites to individuals that ‘like’ it on Facebook in the days leading up to the event. There will be complimentary Sangria at the 10 p.m. start of the episode, as well as raffle prizes, which include a brunch gift certificate for two.
