The following airlines and cities will get you to St. Kitts in non-stop (read: just long enough to kick back with two Bloody Marys and a movie) style:
· Charlotte’s Douglas International Airport via US Airways (Saturday service resumes October 3rd)
· New York’s JFK Airport via American Airlines (direct flights on Wednesdays and Sundays)
· Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (starting November 7th, Delta resumes direct flights every Wednesday and Saturday; Delta also offers Wednesday flights)
· Miami International Airport offers daily direct flights via American Airlines
Pay attention, there's some fine print: Guests must show proof of residency -- no fake IDS, please. This deal is only valid for new bookings and good through December 22, 2009 (yep, it runs right through the Thanksgiving holiday). To book a reservation, please call (869) 466-1200 or visit here and request promotional code N9R. You'll have to trust us on this one -- there doesn't seem to be any information on this promotion on the hotel's website until you punch in the promo code and click on "Rate Rules."
Also, we tried to faux book dates for December 7 - 10, 2009 and it looks like Marriott is booking guests in its Garden View Rooms. It may not be oceanfront splendor, but the price is right and no matter where you stay at this property, you're still pretty darn close to the water.
