VIRGIN MOBILE CANADA GETS INTO BED WITH VIRGIN HOTELS CHICAGO
TORONTO (ONTARIO) September 16, 2015
Sleepover & Save with New Member Benefit
Virgin Mobile Members get it in the cinema, at the mall and now in the Chambers at the new Virgin Hotels Chicago. Starting today, Members will receive 10 per cent off their stay at Virgin Hotels Chicago, a lifestyle property offering the same excitement, heartfelt service and smart innovation the Virgin brand is known for.
“We love treating our Members like VIPs; offering them irresistible experiences with a wink and a smile,” said Joseph Ottorino, managing director, Virgin Mobile Canada. “Our friends at Virgin Hotels Chicago treat their guests with that same unrelenting dedication, which is one of the reasons why we’re excited to partner with them to offer Virgin Mobile Members a discount at one of the Windy City’s coolest hotels.”
Virgin Hotels Chicago, the very first Virgin Hotel, ushers in a new standard for the hospitality industry. It’s the wakeup call the industry’s been waiting for with four dining and drinking outlets including the hotel’s social epicenter, The Commons Club, and Cerise, the rooftop lounge offering expansive views of the skyline. Located just minutes from the Magnificent Mile, in a historic building brimming with character, Virgin Hotels Chicago offers distinctive two-Chamber rooms featuring its patented Lounge Bed. With free Wi-Fi at unlimited bandwidth and no early check-in or late checkout fees, Virgin Hotels Chicago is a traveller’s dream.
“Canada is one of our largest international markets, and we’re thrilled to tap into the Virgin Mobile Members base with an exclusive offer,” said Doug Carrillo, VP of Sales & Marketing, Virgin Hotels. “Just as Virgin Mobile offers its Members money-can’t-buy experiences, we provide guests with a completely re-imagined hotel experience that will leave them talking about it for years afterward.”
Virgin Mobile Members get access to some of Canada’s hottest music festivals. With Chicago being a hub for some of the biggest music festivals in the world (Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, etc.), Virgin Hotels Chicago has fashioned itself into music lovers’ paradise, welcoming performances in the hotel’s live music venue, Upstairs and DJs in Cerise. Virgin Mobile Members will feel right at home taking in nightly entertainment during their stay.
