25-cent room rate celebrates new U.S. Virgin Islands quarter

Saturday Oct 17, 2009

To celebrate the minting of the U.S. Virgin Islands quarter, the islands' Department of Tourism is promoting 25-cent room rates at participating hotels.

The hotel stays are limited to three nights, while supplies last, and also include a $25 dining credit and a $25 per person activities credit. Trips must be booked before Nov. 2 and travel must take place before Nov. 15.

Reservations must be made through for air-hotel packages at these hotels: Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, Hibiscus Beach Resort, Hotel Caravelle, Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort, Secret Harbour Beach Resort, The Palms at Pelican Cove, Windward Passage, and Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa.

A limited number of packages are available and the offer does not apply to existing bookings. Hotels can also establish blackout dates, and the 25-cent rate does not include taxes or resort fees.

Symbols on the newly minted quarter for the U.S. territory include the bananaquit bird, the yellow cedar flower and the tyre palm tree, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands' motto, "United in Pride and Hope."
