Santa Monica’s resident discount program is a winner

SANTA MONICA – Santa Monica residents and their guests can relax and take a local hotel room at a discounted rate through the “Extra Bedroom Program” offered now through January 25, 2014.

This initiative offers Santa Monica locals and their guests special rates and offers from participating Santa Monica hotels simply by showing proof of Santa Monica residency (California ID or drivers license) at check-in.

“Our hospitality community is delighted to extend this opportunity and give back to residents during the holiday season,” said Misti Kerns, Santa Monica Convention and Visitors Bureau president and CEO. “We hope locals will take advantage of these fantastic offers to keep their friends and family close-by during the holiday season to experience first-hand everything that makes Santa Monica the world-class destination that it is today.”
