Luxury Shopping Is Just a Package Away at One Hotel in Barcelona, Spain

Renaissance Barcelona Hotel Taps the Allure of Upscale Outlets in Its New Promotion

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) -  Working through one's emotions is all well and good, but sometimes the only kind of therapy that will do is the retail kind. The Renaissance Barcelona has taken this basic fact of life to the next level in its latest package, Retail Therapy at La Roca Village, where guests can enjoy a luxury hotel with luxury shopping but at decidedly non-luxury prices.

While other hotels near the Passeig de Gracia might focus on promoting those shops, the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel has remained true to its hotel philosophy. Committed to providing guests with unexpected and authentic experiences, this hotel in Barcelona teamed up with the one-of-a-kind La Roca Village for a shopping spree like no other.

As one of nine "Chic Outlet Shopping" villages in Europe, La Roca Village encompasses more than 100 luxury outlets like Armani, Escada and Burberry, all of which feature merchandise that is in season but at prices that have been steeply discounted. Personal stylists and tax-free shopping for anyone living outside the E.U. only enhance La Roca's global appeal. And with restaurants, a children's play area and free Wi-Fi all available -- not to mention upscale outlets for home goods, men and children, too -- La Roca has been tastefully designed to meet everyone's needs while maintaining an air of exclusivity.

The Renaissance Barcelona has taken this one-of-a-kind retail concept and made it its own with one of the most tantalizing hotel offers around. In addition to receiving a VIP welcome pack (which includes maps of La Roca, a 10-percent discount card and shuttle information), guests who book the Retail Therapy package can look forward to bedding down in some of the most beautifully renovated hotel rooms in Barcelona. After a good night's sleep in a deluxe, city view or superior room, visitors can fortify themselves for the excursions ahead with a complimentary breakfast each morning. Even the transportation has been taken care of, thanks to the complimentary private Shopping Express shuttle between the hotel's nearby pick-up location and this uniquely chic shopping destination. After returning, take advantage of a complimentary post-shopping cocktail to help you wind.

The result? A worry-free shopping spree that draws visitors from around the world and, in the process, makes the concept of therapy a lot more appealing.

Rates for Retail Therapy at La Roca Village start at 210EUR per night, and the package is valid through October 14, 2014. Travelers should use the promotional code TPYB when making reservations.
