St. Patrick's Day Parade in Hot Springs, Arkansas

March 12th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

The First Ever 6th Annual Worlds Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade fills downtown Hot Springs with green, laughter, and entertainment as the parade begins and ends on the worlds shortest street, Bridge Street.  Celebrities include Grand Marshall John Ratzenberger, the famous San Diego Chicken, and the Irish Elvi (multiple Elvis impersonators).  I’m not sure of the Irish connection with the Chicken, but heck, it’s all in good fun.  We attended the parade last year, and part of the fun was watching the many dogs adorned in all sorts of Irish garb.  Some looked mighty embarrassed.  Luck of the Irish in Hot  Springs
If you can make it to Hot Springs for the St. Pat’s parade, Lookout Point has two rooms remaining available:  the Evening Shade Room and the Hot Springs Suite.  Just give us a call to make the reservation.  501-525-6155.  Following the parade, you’ll even see green fireworks.

Increasing Amenities in a Down Economy

Luxury hotel chains recently made the news with announcements of eliminating specific amenities in order to cut costs. That just doesn’t make sense to us at Lookout Point. Instead, our guests find ever-improving amenities and services at the inn. Our mission: to provide every guest a sanctuary for peace & tranquility, luxury, and comprehensive pampering.

Here are a few of the new items we’ve added since the economy started taking a nosedive last fall:
* Melodious Morning Breakfast every Sunday. The menu includes mimosas (we’ve never before served mimosas), roasted pineapple & friends, Huevos Trifecta (eggs served over proscuitto & English muffins with cream sauce), sausage links, steamed vegetables, and poppyseed bread.
* With continuing efforts to protect the environment, amenity pump bottles for shampoo, conditioner, and lotion were installed.
* New this week: classy ceramic “Do Not Disturb” Signs for every room
* New black wash cloths with white embroidery that read “makeup”
* Converting our excellent cotton high thread count sheets to new microfiber sheets that feel like sleeping on silk
* Converting TV/VCR’s to flat panel TV’s with DVD players (at this time, 8 of the 13 rooms now have flat panel TV/DVD)
* Perhaps most importantly, we now provide 24 hour concierge/innkeeping coverage in the office.

We believe that tough times require better service and amenities for our precious guests–not less! Come to Lookout Point, unwind and experience the best. You deserve a break from the stress and challenges of our time.
