Gaylord Hotels Introduces "Thank You Thursdays"

Thursday is the new Friday. Gaylord Hotels has decided to officially lengthen the weekend with Thank You Thursdays, a new offer discounting 40 percent off of the standard guest room rate for residents of the states in which their resorts are located -- Florida, Maryland, Texas and Tennessee -- on Thursday nights.*

“Our resorts are located in communities that have positively embraced us in many ways, and we’re grateful for that,” said Rich Maradik, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Gaylord Hotels. “Our neighbors and friends’ support has enabled us to prosper and grow. We thought it only fitting, especially during these times when everyone could use a break, to offer our thanks with this opportunity.”

“With research indicating that many travelers are planning to vacation closer to home this summer, Thank You Thursdays offer a great opportunity to extend a weekend escape,” added Maradik. “Our resorts are incredible places to kick back, relax and make memories.”

Gaylord Hotels offer exciting, entertaining environments that enable guests to truly feel transported to whatever type of getaway they desire, from exotic and romantic, to wholesome family fun, to indulgent, break-from-reality and cut-loose time with friends. Designed to offer “everything in one place,” each resort features multiple casual and fine dining options, entertainment, world-class spas, recreational amenities, nightlife, shopping and more, right on property.

*Subject to tax, resort fee and parking per night. Limited availability. Valid for Thursday arrivals. Rates vary based on best available rate at time of booking. Not combinable with other offers or for groups. Not retroactive. Proof of state residency required. Blackout dates and restrictions apply.
