These Melbourne Hotels Are Offering Staycationers a Free Night's Accommodation This Month
Get in quick to enjoy a half-price stay at luxury spots like the Sofitel, Hotel Windsor and the new Quincy Hotel.
Thanks to the global pandemic and international border closures, the humble staycation is trending — hard. And Melburnians keen to jump onboard and enjoy a fancy local travel adventure of their own can now save themselves a few extra dollars in the process. For a short time, 14 of the city's luxury hotels are offering guests a second night's accommodation for free, as part of the new FOMO Hotel Experience program from the City of Melbourne and the Accommodation Association.
Fancy a weekend living it up in the Paris end of the city, at the historic Hotel Windsor? Or, perhaps you'd like to indulge in a mini-break at the brand new Quincy Hotel on Flinders Lane? Now you can do so without parting with too much of your hard-earned cash, scoring one night's stay free, as well as various other package extras like free parking, complimentary breakfast and a free drink in the onsite bar.
Other participating hotels offering the staycation deal include top-shelf options like the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins, Lancemore Crossley Street, The Sebel Melbourne Docklands and both Brady Hotels locations. No slumming it here, that's for sure.
To access the FOMO offer, jump over to the City of Melbourne website to see your options. Then, click through to book two nights at your hotel of choice. Yes, a reminder: you will need to pay for one night to claim your freebie.
You'll need to be quick though, as the deal can only be redeemed on stays during April 2021. And, because a scheme like this was always going to be popular, availability for some venues is already filling up fast.
