The Colonnade Hotel welcomes a new addition
Boston's Colonnade Hotel put out a press release today in the form of a birth announcement. The new arrival? A "Smaht Cah," weighing in at 1,808 pounds and featuring a "spunky personality," according to the release.
Made by auto maker Mercedes-Benz, the small and fuel-efficient Smart Car is manufactured at an environmentally friendly facility in France, and its frequent presence out in front of the hotel underscores the point that the Colonnade recently underwent a $21 million renovation designed to transform it into an environmentally "smaht" hotel, the release said.
The Colonnade is urging folks to come up with a name for its Smart Car and to send suggestions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner will receive a "luxe overnight stay at the Colonnade, breakfast at Brasserie Jo, and a ride in the hotel 'Smaht Cah,'" the hotel said in its release.
