Nick Lachey Performs at The Colonnade Hotel


The Colonnade Hotel. He performed 4 songs including “Patience” from his new album Coming Up for Air debuting in May 2009. Affable, self-effacing and a genuine are all good words to describe Nick and are all too uncommon in show business. He took the time to sign autographs and take photos for everyone in the room (100+ lucky attendees).

Nick Lachey makes a guest appearance for the Mix Lounge series at The Colonnade Hotel. Thanks Mix 98.5!

The funniest part of the day was the question and answer session. A nine year old guest asked him a question he had never heard before “Did you have your tonsils taken out?”.

Nick had some nice words to say about Boston and the hotel. We’re grateful to host him and hope he returns soon. Trust us – if the single is anything like the rest of the album, it’s sure to be a massive hit.

The Fray Stops by

01-14-09  Due to the weather, The Fray performed for the Mix Lounge on stage in the Boston Ballroom at The Colonnade Hotel. We hope to have them back in the Summer for a performance at Boston’s only Roof Top Pool.
The Fray performed several songs including “How to Save A Life” and their new song “You Found Me”. This Denver band is a big fan of Boston and we’re certainly fans of theirs. It was a pleasure to host the Fray, who could not have been more gracious to the hotel and their fans.

It’s difficult to see but we noticed that one of the band members moved our signature yellow rubber duck above the Sony television in their Luxury Suite.

BOSTON, Mass. – October 8, 2008 – With the restructuring of Wall Street weighing on everyone’s mind, The Colonnade Hotel, located in the heart of Boston’s fashionable Back Bay, wants to give its guests the opportunity to engage in one market wager with a virtually nonexistent downside. Regardless of the market’s performance at the end of the day, guests will still see a monetary gain in savings off their regular room rate.

Now through March 31, 2009 guests reserving The Bulls & Bears Package Monday through Friday will receive a percentage off their room rate based on the 4:30 p.m. Dow Jones Industrial Average’s closing bell. If the market finishes down, guests receive 20 percent off their stay; if the market is up the hotel will take 10 percent off making it a win-win for Bulls & Bears.

“Everyone waits for the closing bell to hear how severely their wallet was affected that day,” says Director of Sales and Marketing Christopher Lynn. “We thought it was about time our guests received some good news at that hour.”

Designed with the business traveler in mind, The Bulls & Bears Package includes a double occupancy room, in-room breakfast, high speed Internet access and overnight parking. This package is subject to applicable taxes and availability.
