THE SUITE LIFE: John Legend for Launch of Marriott Hotel Lobby RevampPublished by Justin D Joseph on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 3:42 pm.
Imagine being serenaded by John Legend while waiting for your train. Sounds to good to be true? Well yesterday the R&B crooner did just that for passers-by and onlookers at New York’s Grand Central Station. Sponsored by The Marriott, the special performance feted the hotel chain’s plan to revamp 180 of their lobbies with their newly unveiled “Refreshing Business” concept. Chalk full with technology, the new additions will include: free WiFi, media pod workstations, and giant GoBoard touch screens. Professionals across the nation rejoice.
Side Note: As of late, John Legend seems to be the poster child for cross-promotion (and sponsorship) with all things travel. With a partnership with American Airlines’ BlackAtlas.com underway, this seems a smart move at cutting the promotional touring costs for his new collaborative effort with The Roots, Wake Up!—available September 26th.
