CARLSBAD, CA (October 22, 2014) – Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel made its television debut on KUSI – Channel 51 recently. The popular “Good Morning San Diego” broadcast hosted-on site by Brad Perry began with an early morning surprise visit to a family enjoying breakfast in their timeshare condominium unit and moved on to an interview with Co-President Tim Stripe in the lobby. Stripe and Perry also had the chance to tour the property aboard The Trolley, the newest amenity for guests and owners at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Marbrisa, and Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel, all part of the family of 21 resorts managed by Grand Pacific Resorts.
“We are so proud of our Carlsbad roots,” said Stripe. “This is where we started our journey and being on TV like this to show off our great ‘staycation’ destination was fun and exciting.”
Grand Pacific Resorts spearheaded the co-op effort which included The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, LEGOLAND® and Karl Strauss Brewery which is located on the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel property.
The morning audience took in the grand accommodations, magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and the “secret” pedestrian entrance to LEGOLAND® California. With 12 lushly landscaped acres and choices between hotel rooms and/or villa suites, the Grand Pacific Resort’s Mediterranean styled property has something for everyone from business travelers to families with young children.
“The weather in Carlsbad is particularly wonderful this time of year,” said Stripe. “We were extremely happy to host KUSI and share one of the best places to vacation in all of Southern California. Our Team put together this creative marketing strategy to bring further attention to our successful rental programs such as ResorTime. We’re still getting viewers through social media like YouTube.”
