Virgin America airline and Morgans Hotel Group have teamed up and made it rain—in frequent flyer points, that is. Through December 31, the glamorous partnership between the two, sprung from a mutual appreciation of extravagance, modernity, and youth, earns travelers 1,000 Virgin America elevate points (a/k/a flyer points) when they stay at one of the Morgans hotels (redeemable at www.VirginAmerica.com). A recent search gathered airfare between Los Angeles and San Francisco starting at 2,279 points—equal to just three Morgans hotels visits.
The flashy, but price-conscious, airline serves cities on both coasts, including Fort Lauderdale. Morgans guests do not need to be previous VA customers in order to participate. Virgin’s free elevate membership comes with no strings attached—just create a profile and you’re good to go—err, fly. With luxury lodgings in New York, Boston, Las Vegas, London, Miami, and more, the flyer points are there for the taking. Nightly Morgans rates start as low as $169, when you book ahead, in addition to their fabulous offers and discounts.
