New Season, New Features, Same Rates At Holiday Inn San Juan In Puerto Rico
Holiday Inn San Juan Retains 2008 Rates, Adds Value for Winter Season
PRESS RELEASE - 2008
Isla Verde, Puerto Rico (December 18, 2008) - Recognized by-and-large for raising the bar on its flag, Holiday Inn San Juan is welcoming the winter season with a host of fresh offerings for both leisure and business guests, as well as extending 2008 rates, with value added, to the New Year. Leading the cavalry is newly-appointed Executive Chef Damian Hernandez, a classically-trained young star in Puerto Rico's culinary scene who blends 'haute cuisine' with his own homegrown spin using local ingredients such as root vegetables, fresh fruits and herbs. His signature style features prominently in the hotel's new restaurant, Eighty20 Bistro, launched in November. Against the backdrop of a minimalist decor in shades of black, white, and orange, this contemporary bistro's menu ranges from modern interpretations of classics, such as the Baby Kobe Burgers, to full-on fusion dishes, as the Grilled Caribbean Jerk Shrimp with Coconut Risotto and Pineapple 'Pico de Gallo.'
New food and beverage features have also been introduced in the hotel's portfolio for groups and meetings. From guided chocolate tastings with champagne and wine pairings, to interactive chef tables where guests cook dinner, these culinary events are designed to wow even the most discerning guests.
In 2009, Holiday Inn San Juan will honor 2008 rates, bolstering their value by welcoming up to two children though age 16 in the room at no additional cost (up from 12 years old). The "No Excuses" package includes accommodations; 15% discount off food and beverage at the hotel's three signature restaurants: Eighty20 Bistro, Coladas and J.H. Yees; two 12" freshly-baked pizzas; $10.00 casino match-play coupon for nearby casino; and a complimentary welcome cocktail per adult. The package starts at $79.00 per night/per person, based on double occupancy, plus government tax and resort fee, with a minimum stay of two nights, and is valid through the Summer 2009.
