Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 10, 2008
The staff of the AAA Four Diamond award-winning Grand Hyatt Denver Downtown hotel today announces an innovation in weekend getaways with the launch of their Antiquing Package. This environmentally friendly Denver hotel package allows a 10% discount at 44 merchant shops along the city's renowned Antique Row, located on South Broadway, less than five miles from the Grand Hyatt Denver. Additionally, the package provides a 20% discount on food and beverage at the downtown Denver hotel's restaurant, 1876 , the Fireside Cocktail Lounge and through in-room dining.
Antique Row features 199 antique dealers, restaurants and galleries in vintage buildings along an 18-block stretch. Merchants - many of whom have been in business for 30 years or more - offer quality antiques and home furnishings, vintage toys, fine wines, rugs, handcrafted picture frames, tiles, custom lighting and furniture amid dining establishments and even a tea room.
Greg Leonard, general manager of the Grand Hyatt Denver hotel, said: "We understand that antiquing is not only fun and engaging, it is a major 'green' initiative, allowing items such as books and things with unique and personal meaning to find a new life. It's a modern-day treasure hunt and recycling at its finest."
