Stay Local Deals Ideas

This list is just the start, please feel free to come up with your own creative deals and ideas.

Hotels (General)

  • “Relax and get away” spa retreat package including a discounted treatment when packaged with an overnight stay plus giveaways like a silk face mask and eye mask, hand sanitizer, a bottle of wine

  • “Peace and quiet” kids-free getaway for couples, including a bottle of wine and discounted in-room dining

  • “Love in the time of COVID” romantic escape for couples getting engaged or married, including engagement photos, discounted stay, deals on dining, spa packages

  • “Birthday away” packages, with on-site discounts and experiences tailored to adults and to children

  • “Work from vacation” or “Work from Anywhere” packages for people with roommates who want a quiet, private place to work during the day and relax in the evening. Early check-in and late check-out with in-room dining specials

  • “Do Good” deals where your full price stay directly translates into a discounted stay for a healthcare professional, front line care giver, poll worker, etc.

  • Free virtual concierge services, helping potential guests create a full experience including a hotel deal, timed passes to Smithsonian museums, dinner reservations at on-site restaurant, etc.

  • Free or discounted parking for guests

  • “Your pet stays for free” deals allowing guests to have a much-needed change of scenery without having to find a sitter for their pet

Hotels with Onsite Restaurants

  • Restaurant deals and discounts packaged with your stay

  • Foodie experiences from the safety of your own room, with upscale in-room dining from on-site restaurants (something more than drop-and-go room service).

Hotels without Onsite Restaurants

  • Partner with nearby restaurants for unique in-room dining, including discounts or freebies (bottle of wine, free dessert, etc.). Guests could order directly through the hotel rather than a delivery service so there are no delivery fees for the guest and the hotel can control the in-room dining experience.


  • Private museum experiences with extended hours and behind-the-scenes tours

  • Discounts on museum food, drinks, retail and parking with your admission

  • Two-day bundled discounted passes for museums in close proximity to each other like the International Spy Museum and Museum of the Bible.


  • Special 3-course deals like those offered during Restaurant Week(s)

  • Dinner “freebies” package – your reservation comes with one free drink per person, a free appetizer, free dessert, etc.

  • The purchase of a gift card gets you a voucher for a free bottle of wine or free round of appetizers to encourage people to support restaurants now and visit when they are comfortable

  • Free valet parking with your reservation


  • “Give the gift of local” with deals and discounts around the holiday season, encouraging consumers to give gifts to friends and family from local artisans 

  • “Safer shopping” initiative, offering savings to consumers for pre-ordering goods for pickup

Partnerships – Hotels, Attractions, Restaurants & Retail

  • “Learn from vacation” packages – attractions, hotels and restaurants partner to create packages for families to take advantage of during off-school days (weekday or weekend). A Black history “learn from vacation” package could include a discounted overnight stay, timed tickets to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and a discounted meal at a black-owned restaurant (in-room delivery or on-site).

  • Attractions, hotels and restaurants in close proximity partner to create a “get away in your own backyard” bundle including a discounted stay, attraction admission and dinner. For example, your discounted hotel stay includes admission to xyz attraction and 15% off dinner at xyz restaurants. Note: for restaurants and hotels near the National Mall, don’t forget to emphasize your proximity to the city’s “free” offerings as a value-add.

  • Hotels partner with local retail shops for custom DC-branded room add-ons like face masks and hand sanitizer

  • Retail and restaurants in close proximity partner to encourage to-go food and drink alongside sidewalk sales

  • Retail and hotels partner to create “safe shopping” offerings where a hotel guest can choose a few clothing styles online and have them delivered to their hotel room for safe try-on.
