Book a Stay, Adopt a Classroom

Residence Inn San Antonio/B.E.A.R. Program Assists Southwest Elementary School

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 7, 2011) - Settled in among other Leon Valley hotels, the Residence Inn San Antonio SeaWorld®/Lackland offers 109 suites with separate areas for sleeping, working, eating and relaxing, complimentary high-speed internet access. It's a popular destination for "staycations" and tourists alike, and convenient to many of the city's attractions. But now, what makes this lodging near Lackland AFB unique is its commitment to education.

As part of Baywood Hotels' Education and Reach Initiative (BEAR), the Residence Inn San Antonio SeaWorld®/Lackland has committed to adopting a classroom at nearby Southwest Elementary School, which has struggled to have the proper supplies on hand due to budget cuts. Participating partners donate both cash and supplies including folders, pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, notebooks, and more.

Through this Adopt A Classroom program, the hotel aims to raise at least $1,000 for its classroom by December 25, 2011. A portion of the nightly rates for each room booked at the hotel will go towards that total, giving guests more reason to choose this comfortable, convenient property.

The BEAR program, founded in 2011, "...strives to enrich the lives of individuals and families through education and support of initiatives that positively impact communities."

Unique among Lackland hotels, Residence Inn San Antonio SeaWorld®/Lackland offers a comfortable atmosphere and close proximity to SeaWorld, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and the popular downtown River Walk. Throughout the year, the hotel also offers a SeaWorld San Antonio vacation package, and special savings for local events.
