When Times Get Tough, the Tough Get Tattoos and Tequila

We’ve posted several times about interesting odd pairs and strange promotional gimmicks. Now hotels, facing persistently low occupancy rates, are getting in on the act. The Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach now offers a package with a new tattoo and a bottle of tequila (to numb the pain). If you’ve already got the ink and just want to show it off, San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel will lend you a Harley during your stay. As one industry expert put it: “The hotels are doing anything they can to increase usage without reducing prices.” (HT: Clusterstock) [%comments]
