Clever but you can’t buy class

11 12 2007

I like this clever stunt by The Travelodge to get a story in the papers (and it seems to have been picked up by a few as well as being on BBC Radio 5Live).

“A hotel chain is atoning for the “no room at the inn” story of Christmas by offering couples called Mary and Joseph free accommodation. Pairs with the right names will get a night’s stay on the house at a Travelodge hotel from Christmas Eve to January 5 2008.”


Not sure, though – even if I was called Mary or Joseph – that I’d want to stay in a Travelodge (it’s only a saving of 19 quid!). It’s all a bit too Alan Partridge for me…
