Munich Hotel Shows Visitors an Oh-So Pretty Time With Its "West Side Story" Package

Guests See the Beauty and the Arts of Munich at the Courtyard Munich City Center

MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Mar 27, 2014) - Traveling to Munich is always a beautiful prospect. As Germany's most picturesque city, it offers visitors glimpses of castles and gardens. (Not to mention breweries, restaurants, shops and museums.) But while exploring Munich is a satisfying experience in its own right, the Courtyard Munich City Center has developed a package that improves upon the already vibrant cultural scene. Its new "West Side Story" Getaway combines Munich's natural charms with the exciting performance of one of the world's most beloved musicals.

Travelers exploring Munich hotel packages will appreciate the excitement afforded by the "West Side Story" Getaway. Available through April 27, 2014, the offer occurs during the exquisite spring months when Munich is at its best. Located among Munich hotels near the 18th-century English Garden, this property puts some of the city's best sights within walking distance of its guests. Marienplatz, the Opera Bayerische Staatsoper and the brewery, Hofbrauhaus, are all close by for a tantalizing introduction to the city.

After touring the sights, guests can retreat to the hotel's Oléo Pazzo restaurant for a pre-show dinner. With an open kitchen, the restaurant provides its own sort of entertainment where diners can watch chefs prepare Mediterranean cuisine.

After dinner, guests can make their way to the Deutsches Theater, also known as "the heart of Munich's cultural scene," for a welcome glass of Prosecco before they settle in to watch "West Side Story." As one of the world's most successful musicals, this rendition is performed in English with German subtitles so that everyone can experience the drama, hope, love and tragedy alongside the characters.

Following the performance, guests can retire to their deluxe hotel room in Munich where plush bedding and air-conditioning promise a good night's rest. The rooms also include perks like large desks, convenient lighting and outlets, high-speed Internet access and refrigerators and safes for the most comfortable stay possible.

The accommodations are so inviting, in fact, it may be hard to leave them in the morning. But this Munich hotel's continental breakfast is included with the package and too good to miss. Pastries, fruits, Bavarian sausages and coffee provide the right start to the day and a perfect opportunity to discuss the performance from the night before.

Rates for the "West Side Story" Getaway begin at EUR 209 per night. Travelers may secure the package by calling 1-800-228-9290 or visiting and using the promotional code XY0.

With a location in the heart of Munich, the Courtyard Munich City Center puts all the charms and sights of the city well within reach of its guests.

Oléo Pazzo Bar, meanwhile, serves tapas-style fare, which makes a nice nightcap before guests retire to one of the 248 guest rooms and suites for bed.
