Savvy  Travelers  Looking  to Get Luxury for  Less this  Summer


            TORONTO Ė According to the US Travel Association, more Americans plan to take a summer vacation this year than last.1  But, value is top of mind for travelers looking to get the most out of their hard-earned vacation days.  With that in mind, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has a few suggestions for travelers looking to stay at one of the brandís landmark destinations this summer.  So, for an insiderís guide to travel savings with style, check out these surefire ways to enhance any guestís stay:


        Donít miss out on benefits that make traveling as a family easier: At Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, guests can take advantage of many complimentary services and amenities that will please every member of the family.  For example, this summer Fairmontís Canadian properties have debuted a program where guests can take a spin around town in a sleek, complimentary BMW Cruise Bike.  Or, take advantage of Golf Fore Free packages at The Fairmont Banff Springs, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler or The Fairmont Algonquin, which include free rounds at these renowned resorts. If the kids are in tow, The Fairmont Mayakoba in Mexicoís Riviera Maya and the Fairmont Scottsdale have complimentary kids clubs that offer fun interactive and educational activities year-round for Fairmontís younger guests.  Also, kids under the age of 5 eat free at Fairmontís onsite restaurants, making dining out that much simpler.


        Know where to find the best deals:  One great tip is simply to look for a perfectly tailored package.  On check out our property pages such as The Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii. The resort currently has a 2 for 1 promotion offering two rooms for the price of one, and is just right for friends and families looking to spread out.  A secret weapon for last minute travelers is to follow Fairmont Hotels & Resorts on Twitter, where special Twitter-only deals and other great vacation offers are announced for limited times only.  Just this month followers got inside access to an exclusive deal offering 50 percent off at the luxurious Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica.  Vacationers who like to plan their trips further out can opt for Fairmont Savers, where booking and advance paying garners up to 30 percent off the best available rates. Lock in rates as low as US$99 a night at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park or US$160 at Bermudaís The Fairmont Southampton.



        Look for places where the dollar goes further:  Itís no secret that the US dollar is weakening, but there are still plenty of places where the exchange rate adds immediate value to any trip. Close to home, the dollar still works in your favor in both Canada and Mexico.  That makes a summer trip to Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac (US$209/night) in Quebec City, The Fairmont Acapulco Princess (US$215/night) in Mexico or Five-Diamond Fairmont Mayakoba (US$239/night) in the Mayan Riviera that much more enticing.
