"We are going to offer you..."

"We are going to offer you..."

To translate the above phrase, why are you recommending the futur ("nous vous offrons") only and not also the futur immédiat ("nous allons vous offrir").  If the "futur immédiat" is not possible, why?  If it is, why is the "futur" preferable?

Merci à l'avance

Anne, a couple of points: (1) "nous vous offrons" is the present, not the future; and (2) we were presented with "we're also gifting you the two breakfasts", not "we're going to offer you...". My guess is that you were influenced by the previous clause, "we're going to give you a better room".
