A Canadian hotel is offering an unusual Valentine’s Day special with an even more unusual kicker — 18 years of free stays if the first stay leads to a baby.
Hotel Zed, with locations in Victoria and Kelowna, British Columbia, said it is offering a Valentine’s Day “Nooner” special, allowing guests to check in from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Feb. 14.
The hotel has offered the Nooner special in previous years, but this time there’s an extra perk — couples who have babies nine months after their Nooner stay will be awarded a free stay at the hotel once a year for the next 18 years.
“I don’t think we’re going to convince someone who’s not thinking about having a baby to have a baby. But if you’re serious about expanding your family, why wouldn’t you try?” Hotel Zed CEO Mandy Farmer told CNN. “If you succeed, you’ll win a way to celebrate your baby’s conception for the next 18 years.”
Farmer said the hotel doesn’t discriminate and the promotion includes babies welcomed via surrogacy or adoption.
