“Half the fun of football season is finding a place where fans can interact with each other,” stated Sheldon Johnson, General Manager of the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel. “It’s important for our guests to be engaged between games and now they can be.”
SILVER SPRING, MD (PRWEB) September 22, 2014
As football season starts to take hold of the nation’s capital, Washingtonians are starting to put together their fantasy football leagues to prep for the games this fall. Various restaurants and lounges are also prepping as they work on new ways to bring in customers to their establishments for the new football season. Mica Lounge, located in the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel, is taking football fever to the next level by creating their own “Sheraton League” where locals and hotel guests can sign up for a customized league.
“Half the fun of football season is finding a watering hole where fans can truly interact with each other,” stated Sheldon Johnson, General Manager of the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel, one of twelve Washington, DC area hotels managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts. “While we have a loyal following in our Mica Lounge, we feel it’s important for our guests to be engaged between games and now they can be.” Guests can stop by Mica Lounge and learn about the hotel’s Fantasy League and how they can join.
“Our lounge has always been the ideal location to watch games,” said Johnson, “and now with a fantasy league with weekly winners receiving a bar tab credit, guests have really become more interactive, not only with us, but with each other.” The lounge has six flat screen televisions showing the games and offers drink and appetizer specials on game nights.
Johnson also credits the hotel’s location with the success of the lounge during football season. “With so many homes, apartments, condominiums, such as The Premier, The Point, Alexander House and Charter House, to name a few, all within a short walk, we really are the natural choice,” said Johnson. “Additionally, close to a Metrorail stop it’s easy for those that live in Silver Spring to invite their friends that live or work in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia to join them for a drink in a relaxing yet energetic environment.”
No matter what team wins, there are sure to be a lot of fun times for those at the Mica Lounge in Silver Spring, Maryland. Not to mentioned a lot of people logging in to check their own teams.
