Holiday Packages Rekindle the Joy of the Season
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO This holiday season, Cheyenne Mountain Resort is giving kids and kids at heart the opportunity to revel in the excitement and spontaneity of the season. Cheyenne Holidays enables families to affordably book a December getaway filled with seasonally-inspired perks, specials and activities to unwrap and experience during their stay. For romantics, Mistletoe Magic, sprinkles a couple's getaway with elegant touches including chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and keepsake mistletoe. With package rates starting at $99 per night for Cheyenne Holidays and $144 for Mistletoe Magic, both packages offer an affordably memorable escape to one of Colorado's most festive holiday destinations.
"While the holiday season is a magical and wonderful time of the year, it is also one of the most expensive and hectic seasons as well," said Curtis Bova, director of sales and marketing at Cheyenne Mountain Resort. "Our goal this season was to design affordable getaways that would slow down the pace and give our guests the activities and experiences to build holiday memories."
Starting on Friday, Dec. 5, Cheyenne Mountain Resort kicks off its seasonal program, a holiday guest experience that will run every weekend leading up to Christmas. Every Friday and Saturday guests can call Santa's helpers at the front desk and pre-arrange a complimentary elf turndown for their kids at bedtime, which includes storytelling and milk and cookies. From 5-8pm guests can relax in the hotel lobby and adjoining lounge and enjoy live holiday jazz and classical performances. From 6:30-9:30pm, kids and kids at heart can enjoy two interactive treat bars. On Friday, guests will have fun building their own hot cocoa or hot toddies bar while on Saturday, guests can douse their caramel apple with their favorite toppings for the ultimate yummy treat. Program dates are December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20. The hot cocoa bar is $8 per mug or two for $15. Add a liquor topper to make hot toddies for an additional $4. The caramel apple bar is $8.00 per apple or two for $15.
This holiday season, give your special someone the gift of travel. With Mistletoe Magic couples can ring in the holidays with a romantic getaway for two complete with a king room or suite accommodations, holiday chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, and breakfast in bed. Since a romantic getaway isn't complete without a smooch or two, this package also includes a mistletoe mini-bouquet. Mistletoe Magic is available starting Dec. 1-31.
