Some people believe in walls. The upscale Mexican hotel chain La Colección believes in open doors, and is giving away 5,000 FREE room nights to lucky New Yorkers today. 100 brand ambassadors are roaming around Madison Square Park and Union Square Park, handing out room keys for a free night at any of a dozen hotels in such Mexican resort cities as Cancun and Acapulco.
The giveaway is noon to 2pm. Look for Ambassadors dressed in branded “Some Believe in Walls, We Believe in Open Doors” shirts and hats.
The idea behind the promotion is to encourage travel to Mexico, regardless of politics, and enjoy gracious hospitality along with sun and surf.
La Colección is part of the Hotelera Posadas group of vacation resorts, Mexico’s largest and best known hotel company.
