Hotels offer New Year’s stay-over specials

JOHNSTOWN — For those looking to enjoy a night on the town this New Year’s Eve, several area inns and hotels are enticing patrons to stay the night.

Holiday Inn-Downtown Johnstown, Quality Inn and Conference Center (formerly Ramada Inn) in Somerset and Seven Springs Resort near Champion are offering packages including rooms to entice revelers to have a safe and happy New Year.

“Having the chance to have a great meal, be entertained and have the opportunity to be safe and stay overnight at the hotel is something that should be on the top of the list when it comes to ringing in 2014,” said Melissa Radovanic, corporate Director of sales and marketing for Crown American Hotels, which operates the Holiday Inn at 250 Market St. in Johnstown.

Radovanic said people will be delighted at the amenities the city has to offer.

“Being in the heart of downtown Johnstown on New Year’s Eve is a magical feeling,” she said.

The hotel will offer a wide array of dinner specials designed by Harrigan’s Cafe & Wine Deck sous chef Joseph Rocker. Dinner specials range in price from $21 for chicken marsala to $32 for a beef and shrimp combo meal.

The ballroom celebration will swing from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Doors will open at 8:30, and admission is $25.

The evening will include a live Times Square broadcast, party hats, noisema­kers and a midnight champagne toast.

For anyone who purchases a dinner or joins the ballroom celebration, the Holiday Inn is offering a special room rate of $89.

Along with the food, patrons will enjoy an evening of hometown music.

The Frank Filia Duo will play from 6 to 10 p.m. in Harrigan’s. Beginning at 9 p.m., Flood City Brass will be in the ballroom.

Radovanic said The Frank Filia Duo and Harrigan’s mesh so well because Filia’s smooth sounds just add to the classy atmosphere that Harrigan’s provides.

“Flood City Brass is a phenomenal local band with high energy that will have everyone up and out of their seats,” Radovanic said. “They are a very talented group of musicians. Both of these groups are gems in our community.”
