New Year’s Eve approaches, and with it come the hallowed traditions of eating the previous year's Ziggy calendar and resolving to finally zing that smart-mouthed parrot. Take part in all the final-moment festivities with today's Groupon to the Crowne Plaza Hotel Dayton. Choose between two options:
- For $125, you get a New Year's Eve hotel package for two (a $250 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of modern American cuisine and drinks at the Stars Lounge.
The luxurious Crowne Plaza Hotel gives calendar-climaxers a stylish way to both ring in the New Year and melt down the old one into nostalgia jelly—starting with a champagne welcome gift in your standard room. Your evening's prix fixe dinner centers around your choice of herb-roasted chicken, grilled flank steak, or grilled pork chops, and keeps your larynx lubricated with two beverage tickets per person. As you eagerly await the final countdown before the moon explodes into confetti, live entertainment from the Shawn Stanley Group will keep the party bumping on the rooftop Stars Lounge restaurant, which kisses eyeballs with sweeping views of the city. A 2 p.m. checkout time gives late-night revelers ample time to brush the bubbly off each other's teeth, as well as savor a scrumptious breakfast buffet of waffles smothered in syrup, hash browns, and western scrambled eggs. If you stop by the Stars Lounge on nonholidays, you'll find that the rooftop locale plays host to relaxing jazz music, panoramic vistas, crafty cocktails, and a multifarious menu that includes delicacies such as Mediterranean chicken ($17) and grilled pesto salmon ($19).
Craig Schrolucke and Alexis Larsen of ActiveDayton.com recommend Stars Lounge:
- High atop the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Dayton sits Stars Lounge, undoubtedly one of the best spots to enjoy a nighttime view of the city, live music, cocktails and a sampling or two from the appetizer or desert [sic] menu. – Craig Schrolucke and Alexis Larsen
