Hotels Offering New Deals To Appeal To Old Baby Boomers

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The newest trend among hotels is offering specials to baby boomers to remind them of how old they are.

The baby boom generation starts turning 60 this year and there are plenty of resorts hoping to start a business boom with deals specially tailored to their need for nostalgia.

For instance, the Westin St. John Resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands is offering Hula Hoop workouts and the Martineau Bay Resort is providing regular screenings of boomer TV hits like Howdy Doody, Lassie and Lost In Space.

Meanwhile, the Loews Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland, is helping boomers get in touch with their flaky past by offering a special “Cornflakes only” menu featuring dishes like cereal-encrusted rockfish with a sweet glaze and porcini essence.

Finally, the Westin and Sheraton Grand Bahama on Grand Bahama Island are helping the oldsters feel their age with a welcome basket featuring an Ed Sullivan DVD, a box of Cracker Jacks and a bottle of Geritol.
