It may just be November, but hotels in Panama City Beach, Florida are open for Spring Break business – offering early and cheaper rates to those who book now as opposed to January or February.
This is great news for students who are looking for bargain prices but don’t want to compromise on their location on the beach or their actual rooming accommodations. Stay at a great place and pay a great rate! It’s that simple.
“The strategy is to generate early excitement for the Panama City Beach Spring Break experience,” says Patrick Hazard, General Manager of the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort. “We encourage those making their reservations early to tell all their friends about Panama City Beach, where they are staying, as well as what a great deal they got.”
The early booking discount at the Sandpiper Beacon, a beachfront hotel and Tiki Bar, offers rooms starting at less than $210 per person if booking a room for four people for the entire week. And in addition to paying a significantly reduced rate, the hotel staff are sending guests a ‘Spring Break Party Package’, containing items designed to get college students in a spring break frame of mind, including items such as T-Shirts, Coozies, Mardi Gras beads and Leis.
Over at Seahaven Resorts, which manages Origin Condominium, Seahaven Beach Hotel and The Reef Hotel – all next to the infamous Sharky’s Beach Club – students who book by December 15 are offered a 15% discount off the already low rates. This offer also includes a free Seahaven Party Pass for each guest.
By the Sea Resorts, which manages the Beachbreak, Beachcomber, and Legacy Hotels, is offering early rates from $37.99 per person per night at Beachbreak By the Sea, plus free Glow Paint Party tickets to Hammerhead Fred’s on Friday nights. These rates are only available if booking six people to a room and by calling the 888-627-0625 number and mentioning the rate code: SBBE. The booking window is available now through December 25 and is valid for stays on 3/2/2013 through 3/22/2013.
The Chateau Motel, next to Harpoon Harry’s, is offering a 50 dollar savings on a five night stay if booked by December 31. Stay longer and save even more.
Typically, the majority of Spring Breakers begin making plans shortly after the Thanksgiving break. Booking inquiries intensify immediately after Christmas, and interest continues to grow leading all the way into March. As Hazard points out: “With this (early booking rate promotional) strategy, the intention is to create excitement and hype sooner, all while offering increased value to our guests. It’s a win-win for everyone”.
