New partnership to provide hotel discounts

Ohio University alumni can now receive reduced pricing on hotel accommodations when visiting Athens.

The Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) has partnered with the Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACCVB) to provide exclusive discounts at four area hotels.

Participating hotels include Ohio University Inn and Conference Center, Baymont Inn and Suites, Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn. To be eligible for the promotion at participating hotels, alumni must mention the word "Bobcat" and they will receive a 15 percent savings. Discounts are only available through phone reservations.

This exclusive promotion is aiming to spread awareness about the OUAA and the ACCVB. The partnership hopes to increase the number of alumni returning to Athens on non-event weekends, while also boosting room reservations at participating hotels. Local businesses in the Athens community will ideally experience a rise in service requests as a result of more alumni traveling back to Athens.

The discount is effective immediately and can be used as often as one would like. However, this offer is not valid during popular weekends including Dads Weekend, Winter Parents Weekend, Sibs Weekend, Moms Weekend, the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine graduation, graduation and Homecoming. Qualifying dates are subject to change and participating hotels have the final decision on discount eligibility.
