Gaylord Hotels has launched the Rooms for Good program, which donates 10 percent of a room’s package rate to a designated charity for every night of your stay.
The charity changes each month. For May, the beneficiary is the Wounded Warrior Project, and in June the program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Gaylord has hotels in Nashville, Orlando, Dallas and Washington (Gaylord National Harbor).
Rooms For Good package rates start at $179 per night, plus taxes and fees. The rate includes accommodations plus breakfast for two. Gaylord plans to offer the program throughout the year.
A few more hotel tidbits:
The Westin New York at Times Square is offering 40 percent off rates for every second night. Guests can receive one night for 40 percent off for every night they pay a regular room rate. Rates before the discount start at $199 per room Thursday-Saturday, May 26-June 25. When booking, mention the Better Tomorrows package or use promo code ZB4.
Tysons Corner Marriott in Vienna, Va., has completed its multi-million dollar renovation. If you’re looking to turn a shopping spree for prom or Mother’s Day into an overnight getaway, consider staying overnight here in one of the hotel’s 396 new guest rooms. The rooms feature a soft green palette, Marriott’s signature plush linens and feather pillows, along with a flat-screen TV. Go to marriott.com/wastc.
Teachers can save 15 percent off rooms at Red Roof Inns throughout the month of May. You’ll need to show your school I.D. or other documentation confirming you are current teacher at a public or private school. Use VP code 604276 when making reservations.
