BOSTON, Mass. – March 1, 2008 – With the stock market’s volatility impacting our portfolios daily The Colonnade Hotel, located in the heart of Boston’s fashionable Back Bay, felt it was time to give guests a welcome reprieve upon check-in. Instead of cringing at the closing bell guests will be rewarded whether the market closes up or down. Now through June 30, guests reserving The Bulls & Bears Package Monday through Friday will receive a percentage off their room rate based on the 4:30 p.m. Dow Jones Industrial Average’s closing bell regardless of which way the market closed. If the market finishes down, guests receive 20 percent off their stay; if the market is up the hotel will take 10 percent off making it a win-win for Bulls & Bears. “Everyone waits for the closing bell to hear how severely their wallet was affected that day,” says Director of Sales and Marketing Christopher Lynn. “We thought it was about time our guests received some good news at that hour.” Designed with the business traveler in mind, The Bulls & Bears Package includes a double occupancy room, in-room breakfast, high speed Internet access, an overnight shoeshine and parking.
