Staycation, bachelor(ette) parties and more in the Big Easy
The travel industry begins to see numbers climb through airports all over the country, Last week we highlighted the many nonstop and direct flights that come to and from New Orleans. The BACH, an app to help plan the perfect bachelor(ette) trip, noted that many are expected to travel in August for wedding-related trips, with even more traveling in the cooler months of the fall and winter.
If you’re looking to get away before those busy months kick up, the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel and the New Orleans Marriott have a few summer offerings that can add lagniappe to your Crescent City journey.
In a press release, the two hotels announced initiatives geared at guests staying longer and saving more while enjoying their time in New Orleans. Each hotel is pushing four packages offering different items to entice guests to extend their stay.
First, the hotels have the “Extend Your Big Easy Weekend” initiative. When taking advantage of this option, the longer you stay at the hotels the lower your room rate becomes. Arrive on a Thursday or a Friday and stay till Sunday or Monday and save 15 percent (for a three-night stay) or 20 percent (for a four-night stay).
Each of the hotels have package additions that include complimentary overnight parking (a Summer Staycation offer) or airport transportation (a Worry-Free Transportation offer) for guests staying on the property.
The “Experience New Orleans” deal gives guests a $30 Joieful concierge gift card that can be spent on numerous activities, as well as a promotional card to snag a free appetizer at Dickie Brennan & Co restaurants Palace Café, Bourbon House, Tableau or Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse.
