Guests receive a $50 gas card with the "Unleaded Luxury" package at the Renaissance Austin Hotel

    /24-7PressRelease/ - AUSTIN, TX, May 15, 2008 - Vacationers traveling to Austin this summer can save on gas expenses with the new "Unleaded Luxury" package when they stay at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. With national gas prices rapidly rising, the Renaissance Austin wanted to help relieve the price pressure and give something back to guests taking summer road trips to Austin with an "unleaded luxury", a $50 gas card, complimentary with a stay at the Renaissance.

For a special rate of $159 per night for any Friday- Saturday or Saturday-Sunday two night stay, guests can enjoy a luxury hotel experience and receive a complimentary fifty dollar gas card with the "Unleaded Luxury" Austin hotel package when they mention the GCKP promotion code. Austin is a great summer destination for vacationers who enjoy beautiful parks and lakes, live music, delicious eateries, and those who find Austin's funky blend of Texas culture simply irresistible.

"With this great gasoline package, we have made travel to Austin a little more affordable this summer while providing a luxury hotel experience for the entire family or for that couples get away weekend," said Rob Gillette, General Manager of the Renaissance Austin Hotel.

Guests can relax and enjoy their trip to Austin with this fun incentive. Austin, the "Live Music Capital of the World", which is known for its great restaurants, and of course, the non-stop live music and entertainment where you can witness some of the most acclaimed talent and upcoming stars in the making. Sail on Lake Travis, picnic in Zilker Park, or tour the State Capitol and University of Texas campus. Toss that together with a relaxing weekend stay at the spectacular Renaissance Austin Hotel and you have a great weekend vacation or Austin, Texas romantic getaway.

Guests can also experience a heightened level of luxury surroundings when they visit the hotel since it recently completed multi-million dollar renovations. The changes now lend to a more "high-tech, high-touch" feel for guests at this truly authentic and upscale 10-story atrium hotel. The new Internet caf , @ustinbytes, offers a variety of foods and beverages during the day including: Starbucks coffee, gourmet coffees, specialty wines and beer, fresh-baked pastries, fresh pizzas and sandwiches, select cheeses, snacks, and gourmet desserts. The cyber caf projects an "eat.drink.connect." methodology. The hotel's restaurant, Banderas - A Texas Bistrot, serves three meals daily featuring a Texas-style Hill Country cuisine.
