March 29, 2011
Vancouver, BC, March 29, 2011 – Celebrate Easter traditions, the arrival of spring and the first long weekend of 2011 with a West Coast getaway. Fairmont’s Pacific Northwest properties have great spring rates and packages on offer this April along with a mouth-watering array of Easter Sunday brunch choices on April 24.
Spring Fling Rates and Packages – Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle
“Spring Fling” rates are available in April across the Pacific Northwest region for residents from British Columbia, Alberta and Washington starting from $159 (The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, The Fairmont Empress and The Fairmont Olympic), $169 (The Fairmont Waterfront) and $199 (The Fairmont Vancouver Airport and Fairmont Pacific Rim).
The Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver is offering an “Easter upgrade” to Fairmont Gold for the first 20 deluxe rooms booked over Easter weekend. Rates start from $208 and include a 20% discount on food and beverage plus a late 4:00pm check-out so guests can enjoy a leisurely brunch. Alternately, the “Short on Money, Long on Weekends” package at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is available on long weekends and promises great rates starting from $169.
Family in tow? It’s no problem at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle or The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Both hotels have a family package that provides 50% off your second room rate – and a little extra breathing room. Rates start from $209 in Vancouver and $219 in Seattle.
In contrast, Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim is offering an “Adults-Only Easter” package created just for grown-ups. A naughty-but-nice chocolate amenity provides a decadent welcome and the hotel’s Lobby Lounge will be shaking up special “Easter Bunny” cocktails. The package starts at $359 and includes one night’s accommodation, welcome amenity, cocktails for two and Easter Sunday brunch.
In celebration of the upcoming royal nuptials, April is “Royal Month” at The Fairmont Empress in Victoria and means a month filled with everything fit for a Queen. The “Bed & Breakfast and Royal Tea” package starts at $249 and includes one night’s accommodation, breakfast, Royal Afternoon Tea (including champagne) and a copy of the hotel’s new coffee table book.
