To celebrate its status as official hotel provider to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Holiday Inn has announced a special room rate of £20.12 for a limited period.
Guests will be able to book the £20.12 rooms on 20 December 2010 for any of the 171 participating Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels. They can stay on any date between 26 December 2010 and 9 January 2011 (excluding 31 December).
Stays at Holiday Inn hotels will be on a room-only basis, while guests at Holiday Inn Express will get a complimentary breakfast.
Denise Lewis (pictured), athlete ambassador for Holiday Inn, said: "With the Holiday Inn £20.12 room rate, visiting loved ones this Christmas is really affordable. This fantastic rate means people can enjoy time away from home without worrying about the expense."
Chris Hale, head of London 2012 for Holiday Inn, said: "The sale is for one day only and the rooms will go quickly so people should put 2012 day in their dairies and be ready to book their break."
The special Olympic rate is the latest element of Holiday Inn's London 2012 partnership which also includes the InterContinental Hotels Group's brand offering over 1,500 free nights to support 50 British athletes, employing a number of athletes on a flexible basis to enable them to earn money between training, and providing managers, receptionists and other staff to the athletes village.
To book a room at the £20.12 rate, go to www.holidayinn.com/2012 or call 0871 942 9223, on Monday 20 December from 00.01 until 23.59 hours.
