FOXX & CO. JETSET TO HUB BASH

Boston Herald - - NEWS -

An epic party went down at the W Bos­ton this week­end — and Os­car/Grammy-win­ner Jamie Foxx was at the cen­ter of it.

W Bos­ton and the W Ho­tels of New York City have teamed up with the pri­vate plane com­pany JetLux to of­fer guests a new JetSet Pack­age, throw­ing a once-ina-life­time bash to com­mem­o­rate its launch.

The bash be­gan in New York City, with bot­tles of Dom Perignon pop­ping at the W Times Square. Af­ter some boozy brunch­ing, Foxx and the rest of the partiers boarded a JetLux pri­vate flight. In case they wanted a lit­tle in­flight R&R be­fore head­ing into Round 2 of rav­ing it up, ev­ery­one was given a set of the new Beats by Dre noise-can­celling head­phones — a far cry from the rinky-dink ear­buds most trav­el­ers are handed when fly­ing economy.

When ar­riv­ing at the W Bos­ton, the flock of fete-go­ers were greeted with flight at­ten­dants and a pi­lot in the ho­tel’s Ex­treme WOW suite. The spread in­cluded more Dom-laden li­ba­tions, like a “mile high” cock­tail, and duck and truf­fle pop­corn.

Now, what’s a party with­out an im­promptu per­for­mance? Foxx sur­prised ev­ery­one when, part­way through the bash, he de­cided to sing his great­est hits. And peo­ple went nuts: Guests were danc­ing on the bed and ta­bles of the ho­tel suite.

Foxx ended his minia­ture-show with a shout-out to W Bos­ton and in­cited party-wide chant­ing for JetLux Founder Tom Oso­vitzki.

If you’re game for your own JetSet ex­pe­ri­ence, you’re in luck: As of to­mor­row, you can book the Ex­treme WOW suite at the W Bos­ton or any W Ho­tel in New York City through the ho­tel’s web­site, and gain in­side ac­cess to the pack­age that in­cludes a round-trip pri­vate jet and black car ser­vice.

Con­di­tions ap­ply, and Jamie Foxx not in­cluded.
