A weekend with no blackberry and a day at the spa with friends sounds good to me. I’m sure most working moms would say the same.
New York, NY (Vocus) August 1, 2008
In celebration of National Girlfriends Day, a holiday celebrating the bond of friendship between women, Loews Hotels is offering girlfriend getaways that are sure to create long-lasting memories. From a day at the spa and golf lessons to horseback treks and a night out on the town, Loews has created a selection of fun and rejuvenating packages at properties from Florida to California.
“As the song says, ‘Girls just want to have fun,’ which is why Loews has created packages for girls to enjoy. It’s important for women to break away from their daily routines, spend time with close friends and unwind,” said Emily Goldfischer, Vice President Loews Hotels. “A weekend with no blackberry and a day at the spa with friends sounds good to me. I’m sure most working moms would say the same.”
