CONTENTS: The Hotel for The R-e-a-l Millennium Party
SCP Events Leading Up to the Millennium
50 yards . . .
That's how far you'll have to walk to get to the Main Event from the
hotel we have selected to complement our New Year's Eve Party at the
Historic Lobby of the National Postal Museum.
It's the best of both worlds: For the Party, the classic architecture
and unique Washington appeal of a renovated national treasure; and,
for overnight rooms and gatherings both before and after the Party,
we give you the Phoenix Park Hotel---an island of hospitality and Old
World charm in a sea of franchised uniformity.
Like the Historic Lobby, the Phoenix Park Hotel was also recently
renovated and expanded, and a full $11M went toward bringing this
unique 1920s building up to 21st century standards.
The Phoenix Park Hotel has 150 rooms and is beautifully decorated in
an elegant style reminiscent of an 18th-century Irish manor, with
accents such as imported Waterford crystal chandeliers, Celtic rugs,
tromp I'oeil, Irish linen, and European antiques. Room service, a
restaurant, and the popular Dubliner bar provide classic cuisine with
an Irish influence.
Last year the SCP took over most of the hotel, and this year we have
the same block of rooms again---but the price has been lowered by
up to $50 off of last year's rate! The SCP Fedewa New Year's Eve
Party rates are $129 for single occupancy ($60 off of the rack rate)
and $149 for double occupancy ($110 off of the rack rate).
You can make your reservations now by calling 1 (800) 824-5419 and
using group code 8359.
Just downstairs from our block of rooms at the Phoenix Park Hotel
is the Dubliner. Established in 1974, the Dubliner has become a
veritable Washington institution in a city where bars come and go
with the latest fads.
Over the years, the Dubliner has expanded to become a hub of Irish
hospitality in America, welcoming guests who recognize that, in the
words of the great Irish statesman Daniel O'Connell,
"The hospitality of an Irishman springs---like all of
his qualities, his faults, and his virtues---directly
from his heart."
For those staying at the hotel, breakfast is served at the Dubliner
from 7:00am to 10:30am, and drinks are available from the bar after
11:00am. Try Old Dubliner Amber Ale---an SCP favorite---or the new
Dubliner Irish Lager, brewed especially for the Dubliner and first
poured t-o-d-a-y (10/19/2000)!
A brunch menu is usually offered from 11:00am to 6:00pm.
Stay tuned here for further details and ticketing information or
contact your SCP host or hostess for more.
