Hi all

Just a quickie today – although there is an unintentional common theme:

  • Any Twitterers/Tweeters/Twitterites (I’m not sure what we’re supposed to call ourselves) out there? If so, get yourselves to the Fairmont Southampton tonight for Bermuda’s very first Tweet-up! From 6pm at the pool gallery, there will be food, drinks and giveaways for their Twitter Followers. Bring your overnight bag too as a lucky winner will get to stay at the hotel that night. To RSVP, just tweet #Fairmont1st.

  • The Fairmont Southampton have special room rates coming up at a cost of $199 until August 20th and $99 from August 21st until September 30th. Exclusively for previous guest, the offer must be booked by June 17th and is subject to availability. Taxes, gratuity and resort levies are extra and a full non-refundable pre-payment is required.  Here’s the link – http://www.fairmont.com/promo/shp_welcomeback/.

  • Also at the Southampton Princess (I swear Fairmont are are not paying me), the Newport Room is open again for the season from Tuesdays until Saturdays – who wants to take me?

Hi Claire,
Thanks so much for the mention of the tweetup on your website! Would you be able to change the reference to the Southampton Princess to The Fairmont Southampton. They dropped Princess around nine years ago.

Claire Hattie

Sure, I just changed it in the main two. I’m going to leave a reference to the Princess in the post though as most locals still refer to it as the Princess and will search for it that way in search engines – I just don’t want people who are looking for it unable to find the details! :o)
