D.C. Hotels Offer Big Savings for Volunteer Service

Answering President Obama’s national call to community service, two leading hotels in Washington, D.C., are running a fabulous promotion that combines service with saving money.

Beginning July 1 and running through Sept. 7, The Savoy Suites Hotel and its sister property, The Carlyle Suites Hotel, are offering their “Serve America & Stay in D.C.” package, which gives you a 50% discount of your room bill per night (excluding taxes) for every 5 hours of community volunteer service completed with any legitimate community organization of your choosing OR the hotel can donate 50% of the room rate to a community service organization of your choosing.

The service must be performed within 90 days before arrival or 90 days after departure from the Savoy or Carlyle. “The hours of community service donated benefit the hometowns of each of our guests, and defray the cost of their vacation,” Richard Spigler, president of The Carlyle & Savoy Suites Hotels, said in a statement. “We’re hopeful that this program will give families who may not have been able to afford a vacation this summer, the opportunity to take an awesome trip to our nation’s capital.

If you don’t have the time to volunteer, you can have the Savoy or Carlyle donate 50% of your room bill to a community service organization of your choice. You will need to let the hotel know the name of the organization when you make your reservation or email in a My Choice for Service form no later than 72 hours prior to arrival. Donations will be made within 30 days after your departure and you will be notified by email.

There are certain restrictions, and you’ll have to provide proof of your community service, so check their websites for details. This promotion is undoubtedly one of the most generous we have seen!
