Couples Seek Romantic Escapades, Not the Standard Champagne & Bubble Bath
Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) September 20, 2007
Lord Elgin Hotel in Ottawa launched a new Romantic Adventure Package on their website today in response to a guest’s anniversary home video taken at the hotel last month and now playing on YouTube.
The video, which has received top ratings on YouTube shows a different kind of Ottawa and a more active and adventurous romance. “Seeing Adam and Nikko’s anniversary video shows that Lord Elgin’s Gen X and Y guests have their own sense of romance. Their idea of a romantic getaway leads them on a zip cord adventure rather than a tub filled with bubble bath,” stated Ann Meelker, Director of Sales & Marketing, Lord Elgin. “We are very excited to see that Ottawa has everything needed for this kind of adventurous romance and we plan to cater to it directly with our packaging at Lord Elgin,” added Meelker
Based on the YouTube video, the Lord Elgin Romantic Escapade Package starts with a hearty breakfast for two to get guests ready for a day of action. Couples consult on arrival with the Lord Elgin’s Concierge to plan a unique itinerary which could include anything from biking to zip cords – customizing the experience to the couple’s specific passion for adventure. This modern-day romantic adventure concludes with a well-deserved visit to the Scandinavian baths of Spa Nordik including the Nordic waterfall and finishing with a wine and cheese. Of course, no Gen X couple could manage the day without their Starbucks® coffee, so that has been thoughtfully included.
The 355 room Lord Elgin offers chic boutique style rooms, a Starbucks® on-site, Confederation Park (site of most of Ottawa’s festivals) directly across the street, and excellent proximity to bars and restaurants. “We already have the right new facilities to appeal to this market, and by taking our cue from this video and listening to the needs of our customers we are changing our packages to be more current. We see the results with happy customers such as Adam and Nikko,” stated Meelker. Adding, “we will always have the traditional romance packages on our site, but I suspect we will see more and more guests gravitate to this fun romantic adventure. I plan to book it for my husband and I – who says you have to be Gen X!”
