The Renaissance Westchester Hotel in White Plains, NY is offering a free hotel room for life – you get 1 night free every year for the rest of your life. So what’s the catch?
Catch is that you need to book an event or a meeting - a group booking - at the hotel, in order to qualify for the free ‘Room for Life.’ This means family vacations with the nanny and the neighbours’ kids don’t count.
Has to be more like a wedding party or a big event. If you do qualify, then you get to come back every year, for the rest of your life – for free.
If you’re the meeting planner for your company, then this is a golden opportunity for you to get yourself a hotel room for life.
The offer is valid for bookings made before December 31, 2010, with stay prior to March 31, 2011. That gives you over a year to cook up an event. If you’re planning on getting married, hold your wedding at the Renaissance Westchester and come back every year for your wedding anniversary.
Like Alan and Rita Holmes, who have been staying in room number 433 at the Hotel Catalonia Ses Estaques in Santa Eulalia, Ibiza for every vacation over the past 20 years, since 1989. The town’s mayor gave them an award for being so loyal.
You’d be getting an award (hopefully) from the Mayor of Harrison – the Renaissance Westchester Hotel being located in West Harrison, just 35 minutes out of New York City.
On top of the near-perfect location and luxurious guest rooms and suites, the hotel also offers 28 meeting rooms, 18,500 sq ft of total meeting space, with the Grand Ballroom maxing out at 5,460 sq ft and a seating capacity of 650.
Plus, the hotel’s acclaimed Westchester restaurant, 80 West, boasts floor to ceiling windows overlooking the wooded estate, and is home to Marriott’s “Chef of the Year” - Jean-Claude Lanchais.
So promotion or not, the hotel’s resort like setting is a pretty good place to hold weddings and events. But it’s always nice if the hotel is kind enough to offer you a free room for life.
