It's back. Sofitel Hotels
is bringing back
the wildly popular "Chic Picnic" offer, so that Sofitel guests worldwide-- whether visiting the Pyramids in Cairo, taking an urban vacay in New York or Chicago, or getting romantic in Rome-- can explore their chosen city and indulge with a sumptuous picnic of local delicacies prepared by the hotel chef. When you book the "Chic Picnic" package, available June 1 - August 31, 2009, you get luxurious accommodations, a guaranteed late check-out, a delicious picnic basket packed to the brim with gastronomic delights (and personalized for each specific city), and-- as an added benefit for those booking before July 5-- a free night for all four-night stays (or two free nights for eight-night stays). At each hotel the staff is on-hand to recommend the perfect spots for guests to enjoy their picnics. So at the stately Sofitel Arc de Triomphe
, guests can discover the charms of Paris, either relaxing in the biggest and oldest formal gardens in Paris at the Jardin des Tuileries or unwinding on the lawns at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. The Sofitel London St. James
is set in the heart of the city, the perfect location to explore London's greatest attractions like the nearby Royal parks: Green Park, St James Park, Kensington Gardens or Hyde Park. The Sofitel Marrakech
, designed as a Moorish palace with ochre walls and gorgeous pools, has a prime setting for exploring the city itself-- its gardens, souks, and art-- and the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains beyond. And the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost
offers guests the best of Bavaria (beer gardens and majestic castles galore-- including the region's prettiest castle, Nymphenburger Schlosspark, boasting a botanical garden perfect for a picnic).
