Omni Launch Ideal Escape

  Hot weather is officially upon us,
and with the new season comes a much-anticipated annual event—summer
vacation. These days, a vacation can mean a relaxing spa retreat or an
action-packed urban adventure and everything in between. To accommodate
guests’ unique vacation preferences this summer, Omni Hotels is offering
Ideal Escape packages, customized getaways at 25 percent off leisure
rates. The package is offered at all Omni Hotel properties through Sept.
5, 2005. The Ideal Escape package features a two-night, weekend stay plus breakfast
for two at any Omni Hotels location. But Omni’s outstanding concierge can
make the trip even more special. Shortly after booking Ideal Escape
reservations, guests receive a call from a concierge, who will work with
them to customize their visit. The concierge can set up transportation,
arrange tours and family activities, obtain concert or event tickets, make
special dinner reservations or handle other arrangements to create each
guest’s ideal escape.

“Omni Hotels’ Ideal Escape program is the perfect excuse for a summer
getaway, and it gives our guests an opportunity to tailor their stay to
suit their needs,” said Caryn Kboudi, Omni Hotels’ vice president of
marketing. “Most of our guests have busy schedules and enjoy working with
our concierges in advance of their arrival so they can take time to enjoy
their stay.”
