ENOCH, AB--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2014) - Amid all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, sometimes it takes a vacation to really appreciate the magic of it all. And for those who'd like to escape for a few days to relax, dine and maybe try their luck at blackjack, the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort has just the ticket. Its "Enjoy the Holidays" package combines competitive rates, world-class amenities and a good reason to hit the slot machines, all of which suggests that Christmas has indeed come early.

The offer stands out among other hotel deals in Edmonton for being both straightforward and universally appealing. Everyone likes to save money, especially during the holidays. So with rates starting as low as $139 per night for stays between Sunday and Thursday, the package makes it easy to plan a winter escape.

Unique among Edmonton resort packages, this promotion also includes a $5 voucher to the River Cree Casino. Whether visitors plan to win back their holiday gift budgets at this Vegas-style Edmonton casino or just have a fun afternoon, the voucher is the perfect reason to hit the more than 1,100 slot machines on the floor.

After guests have sorted their winnings, they can explore the many other amenities on property. Two NHL-sized hockey rinks welcome visitors to year-round skating, for example, while the indoor heated pool and whirlpool are the perfect follow-up for easing sore muscles. The hotel's Kitchen Buffet & Bistro keeps guests energized and entertained with live-action cooking stations and international chefs, while the state-of-the-art fitness centre is ready and waiting for those who'd like to work off dessert.

While there's plenty to do at this Edmonton resort with a casino, visitors will find alluring attractions beyond its doors, too. The resort is just a five-minute shuttle ride away from North America's largest shopping centre, the West Edmonton Mall, while the boutiques, cafes and entertainment of Old Strathcona and Whyte Avenue are also nearby. Plus, cultural venues like the Royal Alberta Museum, the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Muttart Conservatory enchant with exhibits, artworks and fascinating plant life. Winter escapes, in other words, are becoming as exciting as the holidays themselves.

To book the "Enjoy the Holidays" package, guests should use the promotional code HOL when making reservations. The package is available Sunday to Thursday from December 14, 2014 to January 12, 2015.
