CITYWIDE — The Santa Monica Convention & Visitors Bureau announced this week that its annual Extra Bedroom Program is offered now through Jan. 25.

The initiative offers residents and their guests discounted hotel rates and special offers from participating Santa Monica hotels simply by showing proof of residency (California ID or driver’s license) at check-in.

“Our hospitality community is delighted to extend this opportunity and give back to residents during the holiday season,” said Misti Kerns, bureau president and CEO. “We hope locals will take advantage of these fantastic offers to keep their friends and family close-by during the holiday season to experience first-hand everything that makes Santa Monica the world-class destination that it is today.”
