NEW ORLEANS - Officials at a New Orleans hotel are bubbling with enthusiasm after their latest promotion.
The Ritz Carlton New Orleans announced the unveiling of a champagne vending machine in its lobby, WGNO reported.
"We are thrilled to announce that a Moët & Chandon vending machine will be arriving in our lobby this week!” hotel officials wrote on Instagram. “To celebrate, we are hosting an Instagram-based scavenger hunt beginning Monday morning and lasting until our launch party at 5 p.m. on Wednesday.”
The hotel placed ornaments throughout the French Quarter. People who found them brought the ornaments to the Ritz’s front desk and received a special Moët coin. The coin could be inserted into the vending machine for a complimentary bottle of champagne, WGNO reported.
People who found the ornaments also were entered into a drawing for a 3-liter bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut, the television station reported.
The vending machine went “live” at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
