(businesspress24) - NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 12/30/14 -- As pioneers of the extended-stay, Residence Inn is committed to accommodating a wide range of guests with wide ranges of needs. Recently, the Residence Inn put their mission to the test.

Two African Penguins -- Patrick and Simon -- were the stars of Residence Inn''s 2014 "It''s not a room. It''s a residence." campaign, inviting guests to "work, play, and chill." That''s exactly what Simon and Patrick did during their one night stay earlier this year. Simon and Patrick were accompanied by two handlers and made their trip from The National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA. These road weary travelers were relieved to have free range of their spacious, functional, and on-trend Times Square hotel.

Never ones to turn away from the spotlight, Simon and Patrick were distinguished guests on the Meredith Vieira show. For a backstage look at Simon and Patrick''s spot on Meredith''s show, check out this facts page: . The adorable African Penguins along with Fleury the Snow Owl, Lucille the Siberian Lynx, and Sven the Reindeer stole the December 9th show.

These stars were a natural fit for their hotel in the theatre district. Patrick and Simon were allowed to walk freely throughout the Residence Inn''s lobby -- hopping on check-in counters, waddling into the Market perusing for snacks, even taking elevator rides. Their handler stayed close by, but Patrick and Simon were going to do what they wanted. While they left no space unexplored, most of their attention was committed to the hotel''s lobby waterfall, splashing and having fun. While Patrick and Simon were fascinated by their new environment, guests were fascinated by them. Penguins are incredibly social birds, so Patrick and Simon made a lot of friends during their stay.

Patrick and Simon were exemplary guests -- the African Penguins were very low maintenance, and they left their room neat and tidy. That''s not to say cleanliness is a requirement of this . Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square welcomes furry friends, even if they get a little messy. Although, Patrick and Simon have set the bar pretty high.

The Residence Inn Manhattan/Times Square puts guests right in the heart of all the buzz and energy of New York City. A day or two would never be enough to even scratch the surface of New York City''s attractions and Residence Inn specializes in extended stays, perfect for exploring Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, The Empire State Building, Bryant Park, or checking out one or three of the over forty shows on Broadway all in their own unique, storied theatre. All that is just a few short blocks in any direction from the hotel, and without leaving Midtown. Ideal for a business trip or a much needed vacation, Residence Inn anticipates the needs of long-term stay travelers and has elevated the typical hotel room into something that feels more like a personal apartment with suite-style arrangements, deluxe kitchenettes, and plenty of space to work, live, and relax. Complimentary high speed internet and flat screen TVs, surrounded by the room''s plush bedding tops off the in-room experience. Studio 100, the property''s on-site lounge with billiard room is a great space for socializing and adds the urbane sophistication expected from Manhattan hotels. Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square is the first choice in Midtown Manhattan for meeting planners, couples, and families alike.
