“It’s timed perfectly for restaurants to reopen in the counties,” he said. “It gives you more of a real stay, being able to support local restaurants and then come back and watch the movie.”

The Staycation packages change between a different local hotel every month, often with contemporary vacation themes. In January the theme was New Years. In February, the stays were touted as a Valentine’s Day escape for local couples. March was for spring break, and April will most likely be pet-themed.

Regardless of where it was held or what the topic was, local business owners say it leads to higher revenue for hotels and surrounding businesses.

“All hotels that promote and market the product see more heads in their beds,” said Kathleen Hutchinson of Windermere Real Estate in Corvallis. “The nearby restaurants say they will also see more traffic when these hotels book these packages.”

Sky High Brewing, which had participated in one of the previous marketing campaigns for staying at the Courtyard by Marriott, said it had definitely seen the benefits of partnering with the hotels.

“They’ve been promoting our business, which has helped, and we have somehow helped them make their stay more fun,” said Heidi Lewis, Sky High’s director of marketing.
