[Cleveland, OH – November, 2007] – Renaissance Cleveland Hotel is offering guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience everything surrounding the holiday classic, A Christmas Story, in the city where it was filmed. The movie, the house, the leg lamp, the decoder pin and more will be available to see firsthand with the hotel’s special seasonal package.

Starting Thanksgiving weekend, Renaissance Cleveland Hotel is offering A Christmas Story package through January 2008 which gives guests the opportunity to live the Christmas Story legacy. Visit the house featured in A Christmas Story, which has been renovated to the exact specifications seen in the movie. Meander through A Christmas Story House Museum and discover the secrets behind the camera.

While this Cleveland vacation package offers the chance for guests to explore the famous house and museum until the end of January, the Renaissance is giving guests an exclusive opportunity to have an all-access pass to meet and greet the original actors from the film on Thanksgiving Weekend only. Two full hours before the event actually begins, guests are permitted to take advantage of this once in a lifetime event which is partly open to the public. The meet and greet is open on Friday to the general public from 10-5 p.m., but on Saturday guests will have private access from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., while the event actually opens to the public at one o’clock in the afternoon.

The exclusive Thanksgiving Weekend Only Christmas Story Cleveland, Ohio Vacation Package includes:
• Deluxe overnight accommodations for two
• Complimentary parking
• Buffet breakfast for two
• Two tickets to the House and Museum
• Film viewing on the big screen in the hotel’s ballroom
• A Christmas Story gift bag filled with items from the film

A similar offer also extends through January with minor changes. Guests can watch the movie from the comfort of their rooms instead of in the ballroom, but all other accommodations are the same except for the meet and greet offer, which only takes place on Thanksgiving Weekend. The price of the package from December through January is $165 per night.

So, reminisce about holidays long past this year or create a brand new tradition that involves the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel and the infamous film, A Christmas Story.
