High Kickin' Holidays at the Ellis Hotel
Rockettes, Shopping and Savings

Released: October 22, 2009

Atlanta, Ga. – Forget rushing around at the last minute for holiday shopping and do something for yourself this season. Head to The Ellis Hotel, downtown Atlanta’s newest chic boutique hotel, where tickets to see the world famous Rockettes at the Fox Theatre and shopping at Phipps Plaza create an unforgettable way to deck the halls and spend the holidays. The High Kickin’ Holidays getaway with rates starting at $99 per night* Nov. 1-Dec. 30, 2009, allows visitors the option to relish with breakfast in bed and sip on savory cocktails at The Lobby Bar then enjoy dinner at Terrace, the pure and simple restaurant overlooking Peachtree Street.

The Ellis Hotel immediately surrounds guests with the holiday spirit with a hip Christmas Tree in the lobby, where nearby couples who are nestled under the mistletoe may sneak a special holiday smooch. Crossing off Christmas lists becomes a delightful diversion rather than a “to-do” at Phipps Plaza, Atlanta’s upscale shopping center featuring high-end designers and quaint restaurants. After all shopping is complete, it is time for an eye-high kicking chorus line to holiday carols with the world-renowned Radio City Rockettes.

Holiday spirits of champagne and eggnog are sipped at Terrace, where people-watching along Peachtree Street is a holiday gift in itself. Dinner is served at Terrace, presenting an array of menu items, each created with a unique combination of organic and fresh ingredients. Celebrating American heirloom recipes through supporting local and regional farmers, fisherman and purveyors, Terrace recaptures the pure simple flavors and tastes of natural ingredients while bursting with delicious flavors and unique combinations and textures. From a create-your-own three-egg omelet to a stack of fluffy cranberry pancakes topped with maple syrup, Executive Chef Joël Young ensures the most important meal of the day is also one of the most scrumptious.

As a 1913 Atlanta historic landmark, formerly the site of the historic Winecoff Hotel, The Ellis Hotel features 127 guest rooms, 12 junior suites and an executive suite, all adorned with a palette of Georgia-inspired earth tones and sleek designs characteristic of boutique style yet comfy and functional. An online kiss cam can be found among the ladies’ only floor, allowing a way to say good night and happy holidays face-to-face to loved ones at home.

The Ellis Hotel is a hip boutique hotel, recently honored with Atlanta’s Downtown Design Excellence award, featuring guest accommodations decorated with soothing interiors of modern American design. Exuding a perfect blend of southeast sophistication and charm, all rooms include 32” LCD flat screens, plush king size beds with ostrich leather headboards and iPod docking stations and offer a personal honor bar stocked with a variety of treats ranging from Jelly Beans and Terra Chips to Rock Star Energy Drinks and Kama Sutra Body Paint.
