Celebrate San Jose Pride Festival with deluxe accommodations, complimentary valet parking and Wi-Fi, rainbow cocktails at TANQ bar.

Visitors headed to San Jose Pride in August can take advantage of a special offer from the San Jose Marriott and enjoy deluxe accommodations while in the area.

The downtown San Jose hotel offers a convenient location, luxurious amenities and Marriott-quality service to provide travelers a perfect place to stay while on the road.

With its Explore with Pride Package, the hotel in San Jose offers deluxe accommodations starting at $169 per night as well as complimentary valet parking, free Wi-Fi Internet access and two specialty rainbow cocktails in Tanq bar. Guests also will receive a complimentary LGBT guide to the city.

San Jose Pride, which began in 1971 and officially became the Gay Pride Festival in 1976, is scheduled for Aug. 17-18, 2013. The festival is centered on Discovery Meadow Park in downtown San Jose and features entertainment, music, giveaways and vendor booths.

In June, the Supreme Court ruled that married same-sex couples are entitled to federal benefits. The Supreme Court also rejected an appeal to reinstate Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriages in California, meaning this year’s San Jose Pride festival is sure to be more celebratory than usual.

The hotel in downtown San Jose, a short walk from the center of Pride activities, offers visitors amenities that will help rejuvenate the body and refresh the soul after a long night of celebrating. In the guest rooms, premium pillow-top mattresses and triple sheeting make for a restful night, while high-speed Internet and premium bathrooms are extras guests can expect from the Marriott.

Guests have several dining options at the San Jose Marriott, including the Arcadia. Renowned Chef Michael Mina’s restaurant serves classic American dishes with a twist, and Tanq Bar offers specialty cocktails and unique bar bites.

To unwind after a day of travel or after a night on the town, the hotel has a fitness center and heated outdoor pool for workouts or a refreshing swim.

Besides the festivities of Pride weekend, San Jose has many other attractions sure to entice visitors. The San Jose Performing Arts Center offers shows including Broadway favorites and ballets. The San Jose Museum of Art has fine examples from around the world, and Westfield Valley Fair mall offers high-end stores for the discerning shopper.

The Explore with Pride Package is valid Thursday through Sunday through Dec. 31, 2013. Travelers can book the offer online or by phone at 1-800-228-9290 using promotional code 8LG.
