To celebrate its final season before a luxury overhaul, Hotel Ciel in the Fire Island Pines is discounting rooms exclusively for ShermansTravel.com readers starting Memorial Day weekend through the end of June. We cant remember the last time the property ever offered a sale! With 110,000 visitors flocking annually to the Pines pristine boardwalks and beaches, demand at this gay fantasyland is always high.
For Memorial Day Weekend, book using code MEMORIAL and receive 10% off any room. For the rest of June, book using SHERMANS and receive 5% off. With average rates hovering around $250 for a Bay Room up to $860 for the Ciel Penthouse, that adds up to a lot of extra Planters Punch. All reservations must be received by June 15. Standard conditions apply (i.e. minimum stays, cancellation windows).
If youve been non-plussed by the sub-par accommodations in the past, the commercial districts new owners have engaged a professional hotel management company to bring guest services in line with the quality of its harbor-side location, all the bars, restaurants, shops and action literal steps away. Dont expect frills, but do expect everything to be working, plus products by LATHER spa, a fully stocked alternative mini bar and a professional 24/7 staff. By Memorial Day, renovations to the Pavilion, pool deck, and restaurant (now managed by folks from the Hamptons) will be completed and the raucous schedule of hard-bodied Teas in full swing.
