Omni Hotels Provides Guests with an Ideal Escape


IRVING, Texas (June 20, 2002)—Omni Hotels` “Ideal Escape” has rescued guests from the one-size-fits-all hotel packages by allowing them to create their own personalized mini-vacation packages with help from the concierge at any of Omni Hotels 40 destinations. Omni Hotels` new package gives guests a hassle free way to get what they want out of their vacation.


As part of the “Ideal Escape” 2-night package, guests also receive fifty percent off their second night and breakfast for two each morning when they book seven days in advance. Once the package is booked, guests will receive a call from the hotel`s concierge to discuss the customization of their “Ideal Escape” package. They can request transportation, children`s activities, tickets to a Broadway show or local jazz concert, spa treatments or dinner for two, just about whatever makes their escape ideal to them.


“An ideal escape is different for every one of our guests,” said Tom Chevins, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Omni Hotels. “Omni Hotels ‘Ideal Escape` provides guests with the value and service they need to tailor their own packages based on what they want in a travel experience.”


In today`s society, consumers have become accustom to getting things made-to-order. This trend, known as “mass customization,” has culminated in specialty coffee houses where everyone can have their cappuccino non-fat, decaf, regular or with a double shot all while ordering a custom-built PC online. A vacation package should be nothing less. With Omni Hotels strong service culture and ownership model, the company is able to provide this type of high-service package that requires one-on-one interaction with every guest.


The Ideal Escape promotion is available from June 21 to Sept. 2, 2002.
