There's no other season more celebrated around the world than Winter, especially in December, when a great part of the world dresses up in Christmas lights, and cheers for the birth of Christ, the Savior. This is the season to give, to share positive feelings and thoughts, to help each-other, to rekindle broken relationships with family and friends, to forgive, and finally, to remember the values that truly matter, those values that make the essence of humanity, and make us whole.
Mamaison Hotels and Residences
have prepared a variety of packages to make your winter truly magical this year. First, the Winter Early Bird Breaks

when you book at least 30 days prior to arrival, and you stay in any Mamaison hotel that participates in this offer at least two nights, for a travel window starting with December 2, 2014 and ending March 31, 2015.
If you cannot book 30 day prior your arrival to the Mamaison hotel of your choice, you can still save 15% if you stay at least two nights, during the same travel window as above, with the second special offer: Winter Treats
