San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is launching two special programs to support the U.S. military and Fisher House Foundation. Veteran’s Day weekend will kick-off the third annual Salute to Service program, a resort tradition that honors those who serve and protect our country. Salute to Service offers special room and golf rates to active and retired U.S. military members and currently employed civil first responders.
Room rates at $106 per night per room are available for stays beginning Veteran's Day, Nov. 11, 2012 through Jan. 3, 2013. The same package with unlimited golf for one person is available for $189 per night. These special offers are available to be booked now through Dec. 30 and represent a 65 to 75 percent savings. This special rate is the lowest offered by the resort all year.
Active duty and retired members of the military and civil first responders (fire, police, paramedics) are asked to request the Salute to Service hotel package (rate code: GOV) when they make their room reservations at http://www.marriott.com/satjw or by calling the toll-free telephone number, 866-882-4420. A military or service I.D. is required at check-in. All rates are plus taxes and resort fee.
In addition, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa will also host a special gala event Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 to raise funds to build the new Fisher House for the Audie Murphy VA Hospital Polytrauma Unit in San Antonio. JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa presents: A Salute to Fisher House is part of the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce’s Celebrate America’s Military program. The event will feature Emmy award winning television personality Montel Williams as master of ceremonies and entertainment by country music star, Rodney Atkins. Visit http://www.fisherhouse.org for more information or contact Mary Considine at 240-599-2470 or email@example.com.
The net proceeds of JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa presents: A Salute to Fisher House will benefit the construction of the new Audie Murphy Fisher House in San Antonio scheduled to open spring of 2013. The recently opened Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center on the campus of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System (Audie Murphy Division) treats service members who have suffered severe multiple traumatic injuries while serving our country. This is one of only five VA Polytrauma Centers in the U.S., and the only one that does not have a Fisher House.
The 16-suite Fisher House will provide lodging completely free of charge to families during their stay, playing a critical role in supporting the recovery of these brave wounded warriors. This new Fisher House will be the eighth in San Antonio – creating the largest concentration of Fisher Houses in a single city in the world!
“Nowhere else in the world can you find the caliber and range of world-class military and VA health care as in San Antonio,” according to Arthur Coulombe, general manager of the JW Marriott San Antonio and 2013 President-elect of the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. “The JW Marriott and its associates are very proud to continue our support of our military and participate in this historic endeavor for Fisher House Foundation. Our brave wounded warriors need family by their side to face the challenges of rehabilitation. Only a Fisher House can support them with a ‘home-away-from-home’ completely free of charge. We ask our community and corporate partners to consider supporting this critical cause.”
Set on 600 picturesque acres of rolling hills, meandering creeks and Live Oak trees the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa was recently named a Travel + Leisure’s 2012 T+L 500 World’s Best Hotel and 2012 Top 10 Hotel for Value Overall.
The Ultimate Golf Experience
TPC San Antonio at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country is pleased to be included among the best courses in America.

(Only Pebble Beach and Sawgrass are similarly honored). The Pete Dye-designed Canyons course is perfect for the casual player, while the Greg Norman-designed Oaks course is as challenging as it is scenic. The club is private and only accessible to members and resort guests.
