In spite of signs that demand for travel is firming up, finally, the hotels continue to pour on the promotions for summer travel.
The latest, from Omni, is among the most attractive I've seen.
Beginning this week, members of Omni Hotels' Select Guest program began receiving emails including two buy-one-get-one-free promotion codes.
One code is for use by the member; the other is to be given to a friend or family member.
The codes entitle users to book a free night in conjunction with a paid night for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday arrivals between May 29 and September 6.
Each code may only be used once.
Deal or No Deal
I'm a fan of simplicity: Promotions should be easy to understand, and simple to participate in.
This offer fits that bill nicely.
Promotions should also deliver real extra value. Obviously, or there's no point in calling it a "promotion."
Again, this offer passes with flying colors. A free night during weekend stays, any time this summer, is unquestionably a meaty incentive to visit an Omni.
My only disappointments concern what this offer isn't: It isn't applicable to more stays (one free night per member); and it isn't usable at more hotels (Omni only has 41 hotels in its network).
If you're not already a Select Guest member, and the Omni network dovetails with your travel patterns, this offer stands as a solid reason to sign up for the program.
