Cassa Hotel and Residences Partners With Citi Pond at Bryant Park in NYC

Midtown Manhattan Hotel Creates Special Offer for Ice Skating and Winter Activities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - The hint of another season begins to unveil itself as the crisp autumn air arrives in New York City. On October 28, the stage is set to kick off an exciting partnership between Cassa Hotel and Residences and Citi Pond(SM) at Bryant Park, New York City's premier winter wonderland destination. Together they have created a special offer that includes VIP admission that allows you to skip to the head of the line to pick up your skates and begin spinning and swirling your way through the magical setting. Enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate at Ice Bites, and if hunger strikes, or if you wish to have a cocktail, flash your Cassa room key card at Celsius, the indoor-outdoor restaurant, bar and lounge, where you'll enjoy a 10% discount on all food and beverage purchases. Citi Pond serves as the center of festivities which transforms Bryant Park into an enchanting village with ice skating, an open-air retail market called The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, and various themed events and activities throughout the season. In November, the addition of a holiday tree creates a perfect setting for gift shopping, all of which is located just two blocks from Cassa. "Tourists from around the globe come to New York City and I wanted to create a package for our guests that delivers value and an authentic local experience," says Solly Assa, CEO of Assa Properties.
