ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Have family coming in town for the holidays? Several Albany hotels are partnering with a spa and the movie theater for a package deal.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau wants more people to take advantage of what Albany has to offer.

They've arranged for a package deal that includes a one night stay and breakfast at a participating hotel, an hour at Mint Julep Spa, two movie tickets and discounts to area stores.

Liz Gray says even people who live in Albany may want to take advantage of the package deal.

"I think it's a great idea for a date night or for two friends coming from out of town," says Liz Gray of the Convention and Visitors Bureau.  "Maybe you just want to drive in for the night and do something, have a spa package the next day. It's really very inexpensive and a great way to get people in our hotels."

The deal ranges from as low as $110 a night, up to $144. Contact the Convention and Visitors Bureau for more information.
