Florence's Wildwood Inn Offers Free Gas Cards
FLORENCE, Ky. (Oct. 14, 2005) – Wildwood Inn and Suites, a themed-suite hotel catering to travelers from Kentucky and Ohio, has eliminated the travel blues caused by rising gasoline prices.
The Florence hotel is offering free gasoline cards to Louisville, Lexington and Dayton, Ohio residents who stay at any of the hotel’s 50 themed suites Sunday through Friday during October and November. Travelers from these cities who present a valid driver’s license will receive a $30 gas card for each room they stayed in per night, upon check out.
“We sympathize with people who want a quick getaway but who lack discretionary income to take even short trips,” said Wildwood President Tom Kelly.
Wildwood recently underwent an expansion featuring 12 new themed suites. The new suites feature themes including a tree house, New York skyline (with a miniature Statue of Liberty), Polynesian, Victorian and pirates, among others. Rates start at $150 per night, which includes access to a tropical domed pool and free continental breakfast.
With the latest conversion, Wildwood’s 122 units include 40 themed suites and 21 spa rooms.
The Kentucky Department of Tourism, an agency of the Kentucky Commerce Cabinet, exists to promote The Commonwealth as a travel destination, generate revenue and create jobs for Kentucky’s economy.
