Who says you need a wallet full of cab fare to get around town? W Hotels and Acura are partnering on a new service that offers W guests the option of being chauffeured around town in an Acura 2008 MDX, the brand's new luxury SUV with seating for up to seven. Partnering with like-minded brands has been a signature of W and the "Acura Experience" is yet another. "W Hotels share Acura's passion for providing experiences that advance modern life," said John Mendel, executive vice president of Acura's Auto Operations.
Many W properties will also feature Acura Experience Desks in W's Living Room spaces where guests can book the service, which W says is an extension of the brand's Whatever/Whenever concierge service and is complimentary for W guests. The actual service will begin at all 18 W properties in North America April 1 and last through January 31, 2009. Visit www.whotels.com. (DE)
