Britney Spears and Kimpton Hotels were on the same wavelength naming their
newest ventures. Both selected the onyx stone as their namesake—
Britney, for her 68-date international concert tour, and Kimpton, for
their new hotel opening in Boston today. Both parties have now linked
their websites and are collaborating to design the Britney Spears
Foundation Room.

“The auction and the Onyx Hotel’s ongoing commitment through the
development of the Foundation Room will help fund various activities for
the kids who participate in our programs,” said Nina Biggar, executive
director, The Britney Spears Foundation.

The Britney Spears Foundation room will be located on a top floor at The
Onyx Hotel and will be designed by Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears to
resemble Britney’s bedroom at home in Louisiana. The room’s primary color
scheme will be soft green shades with gold accents and will feature rare
glass-beaded wallpaper. The honor bar will be stocked with Britney’s
favorite snacks, as well as all of her CDs for purchase. A 42-inch plasma
screen television with Sony dream system will provide superstar style


Ten percent of the room’s revenue will support the annual Britney Spears
Camp for the Performing Arts and other Foundation activities.
