Holi-Deals For The Holidays
Holidays in CLE: Saving = Doing More
Traveling to visit friends and family during this special time of year shouldn't break the bank - nor should it require you to forgo a hotel stay by spending Christmas night restlessly tossing and turning on Grandma's 1972 pullout couch.
Cleveland offers some great attractions and accommodations packages that'll help you save dinero without sacrificing a memorable holiday trip.
So, even if you have to don that ridiculously red musical necktie gifted to you by Aunt Betty, at least you have the piece of mind that your bank account won't go into the red, too.
Check out just a few of the packages offered throughout the region below.
A visit to A Christmas Story House in Tremont should be a must on your holiday to-do list.
Maximize your experience with the "Ralphie Rate" at one of four Red Roof Inn locations across Cleveland and you'll receive room accommodations, admission for two to A Christmas Story House, a 10 percent discount in A Christmas Story Gift Shop, a special A Christmas Story keepsake and a free appetizer at Bac Asian Bistro in Tremont.
From the Doubletree Downtown-Lakeside to the Hyatt Regency at the Arcade, many Cleveland hotels offer Rock Hall ticket packages. [And, good thing, considering the attraction just opened a very cool Paul Simon exhibit.]
Looking for a unique package perk? Check out the Be a Rock Star package at the Ritz-Carlton Cleveland where guests receive overnight accommodations, two tickets to the Rock Hall and two complimentary Rocktails - specialty cocktails inspired by hit songs from each year the hotel's been open.
Numerous Marriott Properties: Holiday Gift Package

Go ahead, crack fun at Cleveland's blustery winters. But this year, we'd like to suggest you put your money where your mouth is.
You have the possibility to save some serious coinage during a two-night stay at Wyndham Cleveland during their Snow News is Good News package. Plan a weekend stay November 2014 - March 2015 and your Saturday rate will be as low as the temperature outside. Bring it, Old Man Winter.
Party with Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the whole cast at the theatrical production of A Christmas Carol at the Oak Room in Geneva, Ohio. The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake provides a package that includes a one-night stay, breakfast for two and two tickets to the show. Come hungry, because the interactive theater also serves a six-course holiday dinner.
Take a break from the holiday rigmarole to experience the Tannenbaum Wine Trail just east of downtown Cleveland. On this unique excursion, visitors purchase tickets that get them ample wine samples, appetizers, and collectible ornaments at up to 20 local wineries.
