Let’s pretend there is no snow storm warning, nor alert, nor watch and that no one came up with the (insert: eye roll) cheesy yet timely term “Snowquester”. Let’s all keep our eye on the weekend which promises temperatures in the 50s, a kicking spring forward (no matter what people say, one hour DOES make a difference-zzzz) and a few steps closer to Cherry Blossom Festival time (March 20 through April 14) and basically, that glorious period we call spring in Washington. Mmmm. Quite delightful, no?
Our friends at the Park Hyatt Washington are offering two seasonal packages to celebrate the beauty of the city. Since the property is located so very conveniently in the West End, patrons have access to all that the city has to offer, including historical monuments and memorials, and the blooming cherry blossom trees.
Reinvigorate after winter with the Spring Cherry Blossom package which offers a complimentary upgrade to a signature Premier Park Deluxe room, a pot of Cherry Blossom Green Tea from the hotel’s Tea Cellar, American breakfast for two each morning at Blue Duck Tavern, and a children’s backpack filled with sightseeing supplies to explore the city and famed cherry blossoms. The Spring Cherry Blossom package is available March 4 through April 28, 2013, with rates starting at $299 per night, plus tax.
For those of you who like to plan in advance for a staycation or for your guests coming to visit you, this summer the Park Hyatt will offer guests the opportunity to explore the nation’s capital with its seasonal Walk from the Park package. Upon check-in, guests will receive a walking map of the city, specially prepared by the hotel’s concierge, providing the perfect opportunity to indulge in the area’s top leisure attractions. After a long day of sightseeing, guests can retreat to their Premier Park Deluxe room to relax and regenerate with a soothing bath in the spa-inspired soaking tub. The Walk from the Park package is available May 3 through October 27, 2013, with rates starting at $285 per night, plus tax. The package includes the following amenities:
· Complimentary upgrade to a signature Premier Park Deluxe room
· American breakfast for two at Blue Duck Tavern
· Walking map of the city, exclusively prepared by the concierge at Park Hyatt Washington, featuring preferred destinations and attractions, highlighted for guests’ convenience
· Dupont Circle seasonal market fruit plate
· Aromatic bath salts and tea lights to use in the guestroom’s soaking tub after a long day of sightseeing
Additionally, guests can reserve a second room for the family at a flat rate of $125 per night by calling +1 800 778 7477 and asking for Park Hyatt Washington’s Families at the Park plan to accompany the Spring Cherry Blossom or Walk from the Park packages.
