Canadian Specials

In the Finger Lakes we have several specials that are custom-tailored for our neighbors to the north. Scroll down to see all of our current packages, for Canadian visitors:

Syracuse’s Destiny USA at Par Package

Destiny USA and the Holiday Inn Liverpool have introduced Play and Stay Getaway, a new promotion for Canadians. Canadians can pay “at par” and the rate being offered is based on an average exchange rate of 30%, covering the difference of a 30-cent-on-the-dollar conversion from Canadian to U.S. dollars, making the two virtually equal. In this package, Canadians can receive a room at the Holiday Inn and a day pass at Destiny USA (with the choice between four entertainment venues!) – a savings of up to 50% off the full price. Proof of Canadian residency is required.

Offer Timing: Now through April 30, 2016
