Hotel Chain Supports Cancer Research

Desires Hotels is supporting the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer efforts during the month of October. You and your clients can help fight breast cancer by booking a stay during September and October at any one of the three participating hotels: The Glenn (www.glennhotel.com) in Atlanta, Hotel Mela (www.hotelmela.com) in New York, and The Strand (www.thestrandoceandrive.com) in Miami Beach. When the special "Pink Rate" is selected, Desires will donate $10 for every night booked to the Sleep for the Cure cause. In keeping with the pink theme, Desires will be issuing pink room keys to guests, wearing their own pink ribbons during the month of October, and Desireshotels.com will have links to the American Cancer Society so guests can directly donate funds.
