St. Kitts Marriott and American Airlines Work to Make Travel Affordable for Florida Residents, Despite Difficult Times

MarketWatch: "Due to economic hardship and increasing gas prices, travel has become a luxury most Americans cannot afford. In response to the demand for affordable travel options, the St. Kitts Marriott Resort has reduced room rates for Florida residents to $99 per night and supported an initiative with American Airlines to offer discount airfare for travel from Miami.
'Concerns about the economy and increases in airfare costs are making it impossible for travelers, even for Florida residents who are so close to the Caribbean,' said Simon Bell, director of marketing for the St. Kitts Marriott Resort. 'This sale will provide those residents with an affordable Caribbean vacation option, despite the difficult times.'"
