Just in time for back to school special hotel package removes added stress for both parents and students
Inn at Laurel Point is making it a little less stressful for parents delivering students to their Vancouver Island, “home away from home,” and is providing its annual package that offers extra distractions so parents don’t hover too much while settling students in.
Called the Parents Getaway Package, it has been designed as much for parental pampering as it is for students needing a little breathing room. Inn at Laurel Point is conveniently located in downtown Victoria, BC, which has eight colleges and universities, and numerous boarding schools in the surrounding area. In fact, the hotel is only a 20 minute drive (less than 10 Km) from the University of Victoria and Glenlyon Norfolk School, and about a 15 minute drive to Camosun College’s Lansdowne Campus or St Michael’s University School.
“As a Dad, I know how easy it is to be excited and nervous about your child’s transition to boarding school, college and university,” says Ian Powell, managing director of Inn at Laurel Point. “We launched this package to provide both parents and students some breathing room and hopefully make the transition and regular visits extra special, something to look forward with little stress.”
The Parents Getaway Package starts at $379 Cdn per night, based on double occupancy and is subject to availability (48 hours advance booking is required). The package includes one night in an ultra-lux studio suite (equipped with a pull-out sofa should the student wish to spend one last night with their parents), a one hour in-room couples massage, breakfast for two in AURA, complimentary parking and new this year is 10 per cent off entrance for the Robert Bateman Centre, when they show their Inn at Laurel Point room key when purchasing admission. Furry, four-legged members of the family are also welcome to send students off and receive their own pampering at the hotel.
And upcoming Thanksgiving, Christmas holidays, and spring break are excellent opportunities for parents to come back and visit the kids and see how they are settling in to school and the city. That’s why Inn at Laurel Point will automatically enrol all parents who stay as part of the Parents Getaway Package into the hotel’s Innsiders Program. Members are eligible to receive priority check-in and priority late check-out; priority room selection; a choice of newspapers delivered to their door each morning; penalty-free same-day 5 p.m. cancellation; safe storage of personal belongs between visits; and rewards based on their number of stays.
