IRVING, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- At an LPGA event, golfers aren't the only ones who are competitive. Sure it's their swings and shots that capture the attention of onlookers, but the drive to win affects the whole host city, from the hotels that extend their most attractive offers, to the visitors who research the best deals. During the North Texas LPGA Shootout on May 1 to 4, 2014, however, there's already a clear winner among Irving, Texas' hotels. Thanks to its competitive package, airport location and state-of-the-art accommodations, the Courtyard Dallas DFW Airport South/Irving is where the savviest spectators are staying.
And they're raking in the savings as a result. With rates starting at just $89 per night, the offer is highly competitive among DFW hotel packages, especially when travelers factor in the included perks. Guests, for example, can look forward to complimentary shuttle service to both the DFW Airport and other attractions within five miles of the hotel. And the package even includes daily hot breakfast for up to four people per room.
Those booking the promotion will also receive up to four tickets per room to the LPGA Tournament, which is happening at the acclaimed Las Colinas Country Club. And after a night in one of the 146 guest rooms or eight suites, visitors will be in the perfect state of relaxation to enjoy the game. Soundproof walls ensure that this DFW Airport hotel's proximity to jets remains a logistical convenience and not an auditory nuisance. The quiet, spacious rooms are also outfitted with HD plasma-screen televisions, movable writing desks and complimentary, high-speed Internet access, all of which ensures each person's stay is as productive and pleasant as s/he wishes it to be.
After spending the day on the links, inspired guests can return to the property and relax in our outdoor living area by the fire pit, or take a dip in the outdoor pool. If visitors still have some energy, they are welcome to visit the hotel's fitness center, which offers both cardiovascular equipment and free weights. Visitors can also use the basketball courts and indoor saltwater pool located next door at the Residence Inn Dallas DFW Airport South/Irving.
With so many amenities and such competitive rates, few hotels in Irving can compete with this property's LPGA promotion. But the offer, which is available between May 1 and 4, 2014, can only be booked until April 21, 2014, which means travelers need to get into the swing of things and make their reservations soon.
