Hotel chain offers free rooms for Marys and Josephs at Christmas

LONDON (eTN) – A hotel chain Tuesday said it was offering couples called Joseph and Mary in Britain, Ireland and Spain free accommodation this Christmas on proof of marriage and name.

Hotel chain Travelodge said husbands and wives matching their criteria would get a night’s stay on the house, but with more home comforts than the humble stable of the Christian Nativity story.

LONDON (eTN) – A hotel chain Tuesday said it was offering couples called Joseph and Mary in Britain, Ireland and Spain free accommodation this Christmas on proof of marriage and name.

Hotel chain Travelodge said husbands and wives matching their criteria would get a night’s stay on the house, but with more home comforts than the humble stable of the Christian Nativity story.

The offer, appropriately, runs between Christmas Eve (December 24) to Twelfth Night (January 5, 2008).

“The phrase ‘no room at the inn’ is something that resonates with us in the hotel business,” said Travelodge operations director Jason Cotta.

“Therefore this year we have decided to evoke the true spirit of Christmas and invite Mary and Joseph couples as our guests.”

A Travelodge spokeswoman told AFP couples will have to be married and provide proof of identity and register their names at a special e-mail address.
