New Orleans Hotel Collection Partners with New Festival

New Orleans Hotel CollectionSan Fermin in Nuevo Orleans festival (also known as the Running of the Bulls) has named the New Orleans Hotel Collection the official festival hotel sponsor when the event, a recent addition to the city, takes place in New Orleans this summer, July 7-10, 2011. As the sponsor for the festival, the collection's seven properties will provide guests access to festival events and offer special rates to the general public.

Since its inception five years ago, Nola Bulls, LLC, has fashioned the festival the centuries-old festival that has taken place in Pamplona, Spain, which has burgeoned in activities and participation. This year's events will include the centerpiece Saturday morning run, featuring more than 300 "Rollerbulls" from leagues around the country, roller derby women who don "bull" outfits and chase the red-sashed contestants through the streets of the old town (like the real bulls in Pamplona). Other events include the Fiesta de Pantalones (Pants Party) later in the evening, Pobre de Mi (Poor Me) the following morning, and a Hemingway contest.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Animal Rescue New Orleans. The New Orleans Hotel Collection's seven boutique or small, locally owned luxury hotels include the Bourbon Orleans, Dauphine Orleans, St. Louis Hotel and Wyndham Riverfront, alongside Maison de Ville, Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport and the new Hotel Le Marais.
