The Shreveport-Bossier Hotel and Lodging Association and the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau have partnered with area retailers to offer a new promotional partnership called “Holiday Hot Deals.”
Through the program, which runs Nov. 15-Jan. 5, overnight visitors who book a stay at any of the 11 participating hotels will receive exclusive hotel discounts and freebies as well as a coupon booklet containing valuable gift certificates and discounts from area retailers and restaurants.
The goal of the program is to generate new business for Shreveport-Bossier hotels by encouraging holiday visitors from regional drive markets to incorporate a hotel stay into their holiday plans. A complete list of hotels and retailers participating in the promotion is available at www.shreveport-bossier.org/hotdeals.
“November and December can be a slow period in the hospitality industry,” said Brandy Evans, vice president of communications for the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. “We are targeting smaller, regional communities where Shreveport-Bossier is their Dallas-Ft. Worth, when it comes to holiday shopping.”
All visitors who book an overnight stay at a participating hotel will receive a variety of valuable shopping discounts and freebies, including a $20 gift card to Dillard’s, a free shopping tote bag from the Outlets at the Louisiana Boardwalk, 20% off shopping at retailers like The Enchanted Garden, Lewis Gifts and Timeline Antiques, and more.
Additional incentives offered by participating hotels vary by property, but include deeply-discounted room rates, free food and drink from popular local restaurants, free shuttle service to and from local shopping centers and more.
