GLASGOW, SCOTLAND--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2013) - Summer is often touted as the best time to get away, but insiders know that the real season for travel is winter. Fewer crowds, better deals and cooler temperatures reward those plucky enough to seize the seasonal advantage. Case in point is Marriott's new Weekends: Live Different promotion whereby travellers can experience three unique and highly desirable Scottish properties for one well-priced weekend.
The promotion trumps other Glasgow hotel offers in a number of ways. When visitors stay Friday to Sunday at any of the three properties under this promotion, they receive breakfast each morning for two. And it's a great way to experience unparalleled accommodations in Glasgow when they stay at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel. There, guests will find spacious rooms, an onsite spa and a location in the heart of town that puts them just minutes away from the city's best shopping, nightlife and attractions.
For those anxious to visit the country's capital, Dalmahoy, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club stands out among Edinburgh luxury hotels, thanks to its illustrious past as a former baronial manor. Booking the promotion at this hotel will grant travellers access to the property's two golf courses; 1,000 acres of parkland; and gracious guestrooms that hark back to genteel way of life. Best yet, guests can experience one of the best Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh, Scotland: the AA Rosette-winning Pentland Restaurant. Overlooking the golf courses, Pentland Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner to give visitors a taste of the country that is as authentic as the hotel itself.
Offering a more contemporary take on luxury hotels is the Edinburgh Marriott Hotel. Close to both the airport and the centre of town, the property is simultaneously removed enough to let guests experience the sense of a retreat. Of course, that feeling of escapism becomes even more amplified after a visit to this Edinburgh hotel's onsite spa. A fitness centre and two restaurants ensure guests only need to leave the hotel in order to visit the many sights of Edinburgh, from galleries and castles, to festivals and the Murrayfield Stadium. With amenities like high-speed Internet, luxury bedding and LCD televisions, these Edinburgh hotel rooms also guarantee visitors' eager return from sightseeing.
The Weekends: Live Different promotion is valid between 1 October 2013 and 31 December 2013 with rates starting at £79 per night for two people with a minimum two night stay. More than 35 hotels across the United Kingdom are accessible through this promotion. Travellers should use the code WWU when booking to secure the promotion.

About Dalmahoy, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club
Once a baronial manor, today Dalmahoy, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club creates elegant escapes for its guests in a manner that befits its history. Two 18-hole golf courses -- one of which is a championship course -- beckon players of all levels. (And for those lacking confidence or practice, there's a PGA-approved golf academy handy as well.) A spa, indoor pool and tennis courts provide plenty of entertainment, while the hotel's 1,000 acres of verdant parkland make it hard to believe Edinburgh's city centre is just seven miles away. Such a picturesque property forms an ideal backdrop for special events and conferences, which the 11 meeting rooms easily accommodate. Guestrooms, meanwhile, integrate with the landscape via stunning views even as they offer modern conveniences like wireless high-speed Internet and flat-screen televisions. There's plenty to do on property, including dining. Zest Restaurant serves casual lunches and dinners, while the award-winning Pentland Restaurant specializes in giving visitors an authentic taste of Scotland. But when guests want to see the sights, they can easily drop in at such attractions as Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood House and the National Gallery of Scotland. Nobility, after all, enjoys only the finest, and now guests of this four-star property can as well.
