Shangri-La enhances value rate

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has enhanced its “Value Rate,” which provides an extensive array of benefits to guests paying non-discounted room rates, available at all times
throughout the year with no restrictions. The concept has also been
launched for the first time at all the group’s four-star Traders hotels.
“Value Rate” at Shangri-La City Hotels -
Guests paying the “Value Rate” at Shangri-La city hotels automatically
receive complimentary airport round-trip limousine service,  buffet
breakfast,  unlimited dry-cleaning and laundry, free broadband internet
access wherever available,  free local calls, all fax and IDD calls at
cost and guaranteed late check-out to 6 p.m.  Value Rates differ at each

  “Value Vacations” at Shangri-La Resorts -
Guests   paying   the “Value Vacations”  rate at Shangri-La resorts
