ATLANTA // PRNewswire // -- With the arrival of the summer wedding season, Holiday Inn is launching its "Honeymoon on Us" promotion. Couples can get up to $750 toward their honeymoon when they book their wedding reception at any Holiday Inn hotel across the U.S. by Dec. 30, 2010. To celebrate the kickoff, Holiday Inn, which is in the final stages of a global brand relaunch, a $1 billion investment across more than 3,300 hotels worldwide is giving away wedding gifts worth hundreds of thousands of Priority Club® points through The Holiday Inn Twedding Gift Giveaway.
The expansion of "Honeymoon on Us" to Holiday Inn hotels comes from similar successful campaigns run by its sister upscale hotel brands, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts.
"While our customers choose Holiday Inn to create memorable vacations, we also want them to choose Holiday Inn for one of their most memorable moments in life, their wedding day," said Del Ross, vice president, U.S. Sales & Marketing. "At Holiday Inn, couples get an affordable wedding reception, a gift card toward their honeymoon and can welcome their wedding guests to a modern hotel with friendly service."
Additionally, beginning June 1, Twitter followers of @IHG_Deals will get at least a tweet-a-day where they'll learn how to become prize winners and among them will win the grand prize any bride or groom could only wish for - an entire wedding gift registry.
