Key to Hotel Family Promo
The Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s summer promotion last year was big on value but not necessarily on flexibility, forcing family travelers to spend their credit on certain outlets.
So when the hotel’s marketing team, led by Josh Herman, decided to bring “Bleau Summer” back again this year, they wanted to loosen the reins to give families the freedom to put their $50 credit to use toward a wider range of offerings.
