June 30 has been ‘declared’ as Social Media Day by the folks at Mashable, who want everyone to socialize with meet-ups and tweet-ups and any other ups you can think of. Many hotel companies seem to have been afflicted with this social bug.
Fairmont says “Make your June 30th Happy With an Appy.” Appy, in this case, is an appetizer. All you have to do is drop by any participating Fairmont bar or lounge and nosh on a tasty appetizer.
Oh, and you’ll need to say the secret password to your server to get your appy. What’s the password? “Go Social.” Go figure…
Hilton Garden Inn timed the launch of a new ad campaign pretty well. It makes use of the abbreviated texting, email and social media lingo that is creeping into everyday language – things like EOD, ROI, TCB and B&B.
Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president, global brand marketing, Hilton Garden Inn, explains that “Our new 2011 advertising campaign not only understands the language of a traveler, but shows we speak their language.”
And the campaign’s name? “We Speak Success.” Oh, and HGI also launched an eCard Facebook app which allows you to poke people who “speak too much success.”
Radisson Edwardian’s London and Manchester hotels have created a late checkout promo for Social Media Day, available until July 31. When you arrive at their hotel, check-in via Facebook or Foursquare and show the staff at the hotel’s check-in desk that you also checked in on your smartphone. That gives you 2 hours more over the standard checkout time.
The promo name? “Check in, check out later.” Check it out here.
If you’re looking for more social media day hotel deals like these, HotelChatter has seven of them listed here, including the aforementioned Fairmont appy.
