Rocco Forte Hotel Collection Exclusive Room Upgrade Promotion

Take advantage of this exclusive offer between Protravel International and the
Rocco Forte Hotel Collection.

Reserve a room reservation by June 15th and receive a confirmed room upgrade.

All reservations made between NOW and JUNE 15th, 2010 will receive a confirmed room upgrade within 48 hours plus the normal Virtuoso Amenities. This is valid for Hotel stays from now until December 28, 2010.

In most cases you will only have to guarantee the reservation with your credit card, and NOT Pre-pay the entire Hotel stay, which is required by both Travelocity and

“Promotion includes upgrades up to and including Jr. Suites”. This means that when you book a room category just below our Jr. Suites, the upgrade will be granted up to the Jr. Suite. Upgrades beyond this category do not qualify. For the most part, this is because of limited capacity in the higher suite categories. Of course, should you choose to book a Jr. Suite or above, an upgrade would still be granted upon arrival–based on availability.

The Michelangelo Hotel in New York City Offers Special One Week Promotion to Protravel International Agencies


Recently I posted about the merger between Rich Worldwide Travel and Protravel International. During this process, as a Rich Worldwide Travel agent, we are seeing many positive results of this venture.

For example; we were recently informed about a special nightly room rate of $235.00 at the Michelangelo Hotel. This is just the tip of the iceberg in a series of benefits that I will continue to present to you, the reader, as an example of cost savings that this new joint venture will enable us to offer our clients.

The Michelangelo Hotel is centered in the Theatre District of New York City on 51st Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. You are only a few blocks away from many of the Broadway shows, Radio City Music  Hall, The Museum of Modern Art a.k.a MOMA, and Lincoln Center.  Concierge Service is available to assist you in your requests, such as purchasing your favorite Broadway Show,

This special rate is only available from Sunday August 9th through Saturday August 15th, 2009, after which the rate increases to $255.00 which will be valid through September 7th, 2009.

The following are complimentary amenities:

  • Complimentary “Buon Di Caffe” featuring authentic Italian Espresso, Cappuccino, variety of finely brewed coffees, teas, and croissants
  • Complimentary daily Limousine service to Wall Street
  • Complimentary High Speed Internet
  • Complimentary daily newspaper
  • Complimentary shoe shine
  • “Damigella” service, offering an exclusive selection of personal toiletries
  • Terry bathrobes
  • 24-hour complimentary use of our Fitness Center
  • 24-hour RAI (Italian Channel)
  • Two cable televisions (one in the bathroom)
  • Bose Wave Stereo/CD Player

In addition to the above amenities there always is a strong possibility of you receiving a room upgrade based upon the time and availability within the Hotel.

When I am asked to make hotel reservations for my clients there are always several questions that need to be answered,  such as the your budget, and what is the best location for you? I love this hotel for it’s location, which is in the New York’s Theater District. Its Italian Renaissance Charm, and the “Small Boutique features” which provides you the 21st century state of technology and services. For those that enjoy exercise, if you have not already walked for a full day exploring New York City, the property also has it’s own site Exercise Room which is open 24 hours per day. They also have a partnership with the Athletic Swim Club right across the street, where you can swim laps. The hours the pool is available during the weekdays is from 5 AM until 10 PM and on weekends from 11 AM until 5 PM.

In this area are many fine restaurants to choose from, yet you should experience the hotels dinning room experience at their award wining restaurant “Insieme”.  Unfortunately like many things in life we all have our different tastes in regards to food, but for myself and I love to eat. The experience of the food preparation of Mr. Marco Canora, the main Chef, at least I walked away humming after dinner.

There are many hotels in New York City that I especially love, but it’s all part of the location, the budget, and your taste.

If you are seeking to be in the Theater and Entertainment district, please consider this hotel. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer please feel free to contact me at 1-914-835-7600 ext 226 or email me at
