JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa Honors Military with Salute to Service Rates
The resort continues to support the military by offering significant savings
SAN ANTONIO – The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa honors the members of the United States military by offering their Salute to Service program, a resort tradition that honors those who serve and protect our country. Salute to Service offers special room rates to active duty and retired United States, military members. Due to the very strong presence of local service members and military installations in the city, San Antonio is also known as “Military City, U.S.A.”.
Veterans and the Military also take vacations on the water. There are many places to get a boat rental. You can find great rentals online. Just Google it.
But with Veteran’s Day approaching, giving Veterans discounts is JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa’s way to remember and show appreciation for the sacrifices members of the armed forces and their families make while protecting our country.
Anytime a member of our military, and their family, is looking for a little “R & R”, the resort is the perfect getaway by requesting the Salute to Service rate (rate code: GOV) when making reservations. A military or service I.D. is required at check-in. All rates are plus taxes and resort fee.
“Nowhere else in the world can you find the caliber and range of world-class military and VA health care as in San Antonio,” according to Arthur Coulombe, general manager of the JW Marriott San Antonio. “The JW Marriott and its associates are very proud to continue our support of our military and their families by extending a very warm welcome as they call our resort home during their stay.”
Along with the Salute to Service rates, if members of the military or their extended visiting families would like to visit during the holidays, the resort spreads joy with wondrous holiday traditions and also offers the lowest room rates of the year during the season of celebration. Guests are lavishly entertained with activities and events that build lasting Texas Hill Country holiday memories.
Between November 17 and December 31, 2018, the resort will bask in the magic and wonder of the holidays. The glittering holiday festivities officially commence Saturday, November 17 with the resort’s magnificent annual “Light Up the Night” illumination festival. The hotel’s rolling backyard area becomes an electrified wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights woven through the trees.
The dazzling display of lights is choreographed to joyous holiday sounds bringing the season to life with a music and light display set among the trees, waterfall, and vista of the rolling hill country. Holiday resort room rates begin at $189 per night per room between November 17 and December 31.
The Ultimate Golf Experience
TPC San Antonio at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country is pleased to be included among the best courses in America. In addition to being named a Top 75 Golf Resort by Golf Digest and one of the Best Courses, You Can Play by Golf Week, the PGA Tour chooses to stop here for the PGA TOUR Valero Texas Open. The Pete Dye-designed AT&T Canyons Course is perfect for the casual player, while the Greg Norman-designed AT&T Oaks course is as challenging as it is scenic. The club is private and only accessible to members and resort guests.
Exhilarating Features for the Entire Family
