With the worst winter season in decades upon us, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. reported it is trying to make it easier to book trips to Mexico. The hospitality giant announced a new promotion offering all-inclusive packages at its Westin, Sheraton and Le Meridien resorts in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos.
Starwood resorts offering all-inclusive packages include The Westin Resort & Spa, Los Cabos; The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas, Cancun; The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta; The Westin Resort & Spa, Cancun; and Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort, Los Cabos; Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center, Puerto Vallarta and the Le Meridien Cancun Resort & Spa.
Starwood said that as hotel occupancies near pre-crisis levels and the economic recovery continues to build, hotels are filling up and rates are on the rise making travel deals harder to come by, but Mexico is a notable exception, according to Starwood.
"Due to the recent negative headlines people are thinking twice about vacationing in Mexico, but what many travelers don’t realize is that the vast majority of incidents are occurring hundreds of miles away from Mexico's most popular vacation spots. It is like avoiding Florida because of forest fires in California," said Trip Barrett, vice president of brand management at Starwood Hotels Latin America Division. "As a result, Mexico is a great deal right now, and Starwood boasts some of the country’s best resorts in idyllic locations that are safe, fun and easily accessible."
Starting today, travelers can book stays through December 15, 2011 by visiting starwoodhotels.com/mexicoallinclusive. Rates for two people start as low as $155 USD per night, based upon availability, for the all-inclusive packages, which include:
• Three meals a day at any of the resorts’ restaurants and pool bars
• Free meals for children under 4 and 50 percent off meals for children ages 5-12
• Open bar with selection of domestic and imported drinks
• Pool-side beverage service
