As the ever-competitive hospitality market continues to heat up, hotels are looking for new ways to attract travelers and expanding on the way they do business—even with other hotels.
Hotels are now elevating guest experiences by creating mini-getaways or “vacations within a vacation,” by partnering with other hotels and destinations, in order to offer travelers a two-in-one deal and maximize their cultural and immersive experience.
Here are some examples of hotels making it easier for travelers to cross destinations off of their bucket list:
- Two-night, NYC to country-side escape in Bedford, NY
Hotel residence collection AKA partnered with Richard Gere’s Bedford Post Inn to give their guests a two-night, city-to-country getaway. In this offering, guests will receive VIP seating at its restaurant The Barn, guaranteed space at the on-site yoga classes and more. See more here: http://www.stayaka.com/bedfordpost/default.aspx

- Travel to the “Mysterious” Island of Cuba from Key West
