Tag Results: Hotel Reopening
Stay at The Attwater (formerly the Attwater Villa) in Newport, Rhode Island, and enjoy 20 percent off a chic boutique stay in New England. The hotel is currently closed for renovations, but to celebrate its June 1 reopening you can enjoy the redesigned rooms at 20 percent off from June 1 to June 20. The 20/20/20 Special offer includes not just 20 percent off the room rate, but also a $20 gift card to a nearby restaurant and a $20 room credit for future stays. Discounted room rates start at just $143.20/night for a Petite Queen – and compared to the $209/night starting rate you’ll see for the same room in July, that’s a real steal.
The renovated hotel’s 12 rooms will be decorated by award-winning Rachel Reider Interiors of Boston with bold colors and fabrics, contemporary furniture, and nautical touches. They’ll feature deluxe amenities like designer linens, waffle robes, personalized concierge service, flat-screen TVs and DVD players, and even iPad 3s equipped with info on local attractions. You’ll also get free Wi-Fi, free parking, and three complimentary items a day from the all-day coffee bar and café – think espresso, lemon-ginger scones, and macaroons with bittersweet chocolate ganache. Plus, The Attwater is within walking distance of beaches (for which you’ll get beach chairs and bags), dining (did we mention that $20 gift card?), shopping, and Newport’s Cliff Walk.
The 20/20/20 Special has no blackout dates or restrictions and can be booked by calling 800-392-3717 and asking for the 20/20/20 Special package or by making a reservation online. (Note that to reserve the package online you’ll need to mention it in the “Additional information” section and you won’t see the discounted price, so you might want to book by phone to be sure of the exact cost of your room.)
With the temperatures and snow making it feel like it’s already December, it’s time to start planning your winter escape to sand and sun. Opened last month on Ocean Drive in Miami’s bustling South Beach, Waldorf offers Art Deco style while providing 21st-century comforts. Its 44 rooms sport a monochromatic décor, along with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. The lobby-level Prime Time Café is perfect for a cocktail or a casual bite. Through March 2012, you can book a room at Waldorf for as low as $129/night.
THE VALUE: The hotel expects standard rates to average $259/night, so these opening rates represent a 50 percent discount.
THE CATCH: There are no official blackout dates, but certain days in November and December are already unavailable on the hotel’s online reservation system.
THE DETAILS: Head to www.room-matehotels.com or call 786-439-1600 to snag the low rates.
