Driskill Hotel Offers Gas Credit to Summer Travelers

AUSTIN, TX- May 27, 2008 - This summer, as vacationers hit the open road, Destination Hotels & Resorts (DH&R) makes it easier to get from one destination to the next with a special $25 per night gas credit promotion. For every night booked at any DH&R property, including The Driskill Hotel in Austin, guests receive a $25 nightly room credit, applied at the time of checkout, to offset the increasing cost of travel. The "Destination Drive" special offer is valid Memorial Day through the Labor Day holiday.

In addition, The Driskill has also launched a Summer Sizzle travel package that includes 25% off guestroom rates through September 10 (excluding luxury suites) and complimentary "skillet breakfasts" for two in the 1886 Café & Bakery. Since the 1960s, the hotel has become famous for "skillet breakfasts," sizzling scrambled-egg dishes served in small cast iron skillets. Currently, the Café offers "Texas Two Step" with cheddar cheese grits, jalapeno corn biscuits and chorizo gravy; "South of the Border" that adds salsa, Monterey Jack cheese and black beans; and the popular "Hippy Hollow" with spinach, goat cheese and country potatoes.

DH&R's collection of distinctive hotels and resorts in exceptional vacation destinations also includes Hotel ICON in downtown Houston, Royal Palms Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Vail Cascade Resort & Spa in Colorado, Skamania Lodge near Portland, Wild Dunes Resort outside Charleston, SC and the historic Inn and Spa at Loretto in Santa Fe. DH&R recently opened the ultimate mountain vacation experience at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA, just 80 miles east of Seattle and will open the luxurious Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont in June. All Destination properties extend this special offer throughout the summer.

With more than 10 golf courses, a dozen full-service spas, exceptional dining experiences and endless vacation possibilities, there is a Destination to fit every type of vacation need. Destination properties offer an array of exciting summer adventures such as Austin's live music scene, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, championship golf and much more.
