The Hotel Industry Gets Creative to Boost Bookings

As travel restrictions continue to ease and states reopen restaurants, retail and entertainment venues, the tourism industry is eager for a boost. Though many people are yearning for a vacation after months of being cooped up inside, some are still hesitant to travel, and hotels are noticing. To sweeten the deal, hotels across the country are offering unique packages that allow guests to enjoy the luxury of the hotel property, while still being able to ‘work-from-home’ or assist their kids with virtual learning. While there are definitely added perks, some of the limited time offers will also put money back in your pocket, which is an incentive we can all get behind.

Best Western

Best Western is helping travelers make the most of every dollar through their latest campaign “Hit the Road with Best Western”. For every $100 Best Western gift card purchased through September 30th, guests will receive a $20 bonus gift card.  The travel card is accepted at more than 100 countries and territories worldwide and can be purchased in a variety of denominations. For details on expiration and use, visit Best Western.


Club Wyndham

With many students opting for virtual school this year, Club Wyndham decided to launch the “Back to School, Back to Your Bucket List” vacation package to encourage families to start distance learning from new destinations.

The package will save families up to 30% at all-suite resorts located near family-friendly destinations that offer historical sites or outdoor activities once the school day is over. In addition to the special rate, families will receive upgraded Wi-Fi, a Club Wyndham backpack filled with school supplies and for the parents, noise canceling headphones and a bottle of wine.

MGM Resorts (Bellagio Las Vegas & ARIA Las Vegas)

For those who have been working from home for the last 6 months, this deal is for you. MGM launched three different “Viva Las Office” packages to allow remote workers the opportunity to take their office to Sin City.

Each package has a three-night minimum stay and prices start as low as $100 per night. Depending on the package you choose, amenities include daily food and drink credits, access to a private pool, free massage and discounts for helicopter and Jeep tours. Each package also comes with an executive assistant, who handles all reservations and activities during your stay. This is only available at the Bellagio and ARIA hotels, but for more information on package tiers, visit MGM Resorts.


Hyatt Centric Las Olas Fort Lauderdale

If you don’t want to commit to overnight stays but want to escape from your four walls and have the luxury of living in South Florida (like us Fishies), the Hyatt has the perfect package for you. For $75/day you get access to the poolside suites and poolside exercise classes. You’ll also receive cold towels and beverages throughout the day.
