'RUDDY' good value stimulus package launched by Ibis Sydney King Street Wharf

Kevin Rudd’s $900 stimulus payments are beginning to arrive in Australians’ bank accounts, and domestic tourism has been identified as one of the best – and fastest – ways of maximising the impact of the stimulus on the local economy. So the message is to go and have a local holiday for the sake of Australia!

With this in mind, Sydney’s newest hotel, Ibis Sydney King St Wharf, has come up with the Ibis Ruddy Good Value package that includes everything that a stressed-out couple needs to revitalise their lives and make the most of the Rudd Government payment.

For just $900, couples can enjoy an all-inclusive stay for three nights in a Harbour King room at the new Ibis Sydney King St Wharf, with fully cooked breakfast for two each day, car parking or airport shuttle service to and from the airport, two tickets to Luna Park, two Sydney Ferry tickets to get to Luna Park, three $100 dinner vouchers for Cargo Bar, Bungalow 8 and The Loft, 2 tickets to Imax cinema, two tickets for Wildlife World or Sydney Aquarium plus a bottle of Thorn Clarke Sparkling Pinot on check-in.

In the spirit of the Ibis brand, this offer represents incredible value for money, with more than $1300 worth of inclusions.

“There has never been a better time for people to travel in Australia and with the government offering this stimulus package to so many workers, people can now re-charge their batteries while helping revive the economy,” said Ibis Sydney King St Wharf GM Benjamin Krieg.

“Tourism offers the ultimate multiplier affect to the economy, as the money is pumped almost immediately into labour-intensive industries. It’s a good feeling to know that you’re helping the economy while helping yourself.”

Ibis Sydney King St Wharf is the city’s first new-build CBD hotel in Sydney this decade and is located in the heart of one of the city’s most exciting tourism and entertainment precincts. Surrounded by restaurants, it is just a short walk to Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife World and all the attractions of Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.

The rooms offer funky colour schemes in red, brown and white, with modern furniture, LCD TVs and work desks, with some rooms offering water views.

This package is valid for bookings from April to 31 October 2009, subject to availability and can only be booked by phoning 1300 116 771.

For bookings phone the Ibis Sydney King Street Wharf direct on 1300 116 771.
