When out of town riders arrive in Vancouver for the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix presented by Allstream, waiting for them will be a Gastown Grand Prix package that includes bone rattling bricks, leg sapping sprints out of the hairpin turn, elbows from fellow riders and a raucous wall of noise from the 20,000 to 30,000 spectators that will line the course.
After the race, riders, residents and out of town spectators, can enjoy a much more soothing and comfortable Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix package courtesy of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, the official hotel sponsor of the race. For 2012 (July 10-12), The Fairmont Waterfront, The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and The Fairmont Pacific Rim will each offer a Gastown Grand Prix package for cyclists travelling from near and far, which includes:
- 20% off the “Rate of the Day”
- 20% off all food & beverage
- A cycling-themed welcome amenity which will have you prepared for the big day, and
- Bike storage in the comfort of your guestroom
In addition, any guest booking this Gastown Grand Prix Package will be entered in a draw to win a two-night stay in Deluxe Accommodation in one of the three downtown Fairmont Hotels & Resorts for the 2013 race.
Race spectators will also have an additional chance to win a complimentary stay at the Fairmont Waterfront by visiting the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts tent during the race and sampling some tasty house-made, energy enhancing granola bars.
“We are delighted to partner with the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix for 2012,” said Philip Barnes, Regional Vice President, Pacific Northwest & General Manager Fairmont Pacific Rim. “I am excited to see this event make a return to the city and highlight the vibrant area that is Gastown. The event itself aligns perfectly with the lifestyle focus of the Fairmont brand.”
Through the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ complimentary loyalty program, Fairmont Presidents Club, guests have free access to BMW cruiser bikes, so they can explore the vibrant cities and stunning landscapes of Fairmont’s distinctive locales.
Through the Fairmont Fit program, Fairmont President’s Club members who want to stay fit while travelling can also have workout apparel and footwear delivered to their guest room upon arrival, even if they forget or choose to leave their workout clothes at home.
