Pullman Hotels & Resorts, which operates 84 4- and 5-star properties around the world and recently released a study about the blurring distinction between work and leisure lifestyles, has introduced a "Time for Pleasure by Pullman" promotion designed to convert business travelers to leisure stayovers. Now available at more than 50 hotels, the packages - which require a stay of at least three consecutive nights - include unlimited Internet access; "Lounge Connectivity by Pullman" services; breakfast buffet; and a discount on hotel services such as bar, restaurant or video-on-demand. Another major luxury hotelier interested in developing specific offers for "bleisure" travelers is Belmond, formerly Orient-Express, which operates 45 global hotel, rail and river cruise assets. "That is something we are definitely keen to offer," said Ralph Aruzza, Belmond's London-based chief sales and marketing officer. "We're currently reviewing options, and we are focused on coming up with creative ways to appeal to business travelers’ work and leisure needs. Our hotels are located in some of the world’s most celebrated destinations, and there’s no reason why corporate guests can’t mix business with a little pleasure. For example, a business trip itinerary could include a local excursion." Get the full story at Hotel News Now
