LA Times reports on promotions in the travel industry, including discounts at Ritz-Carlton locations.
And now airlines and hotels are fighting back with a slew of new campaigns to boost business travel. Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. — the hotel chain for the Mercedes-Benz crowd — is launching a program Monday called Meetings Within Reach that rewards business travelers for staying in one of 72 Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world. Groups that book 10 rooms or more per night will get complimentary continental breakfast, meeting rooms, Internet, discounts on audio/visual supplies and select suite upgrades. Meetings must be booked by Sept. 31 and held by Dec. 31. – from LATimes
