Suddenly it seems hotels everywhere are offering the same promotion: Buy two nights and get a third one free. Though some bargain hunters might scoff at the offer as nothing more than the deal-du-jour, we say a deal’s a deal -- and any deal that cuts your daily room rate by 33% is nothing to sneeze at. Especially if it means getting one night free at super luxe properties such as these, and potentially saving more than $800 (as you could at the St. Regis New York)!
Here are some of our favorite hotels that are currently running a 3-for-2 promotion:
Hotel: Four Seasons Boston Regular Price: $425/night Location: Downtown and Waterfront, Boston One of the city's top hotels with amazing service, a parkfront location, a great health club with a beautiful pool, and an iconic restaurant, the 273-room Four Seasons offers luxurious and spacious rooms. But there's no full spa on-site and bathrooms disappoint with shower/tub combos; thankfully, they're due to be renovated with separate tubs and showers in 2010. To book, click here.
Hotel: Hotel Rex Regular Price: $164/night Location: Union Square, San Francisco This 94-room Union Square boutique, themed after 1920s and '30s literary salons, is a bit quirky, with fairly hands-off service and few amenities. But the tiny quarters are nicely furnished with up-to-date amenities, there's a daily wine hour in the reading-room-style lobby bar, and an on-site bistro offers up well-priced Californian fare. You must book through this page in order for rates to apply.
Hotel: The Westin Maui Resort & Spa Regular Price: $438/night Location: Maui, Hawaii The 759-room Westin Maui's five-pool aquatic playground, direct access to Kaanapali Beach, exceptional beds, and a slew of above-average amenities make it one of the best mega-resorts for the price in Kaanapali, if not all of Maui. But at a resort this big, you'll have to wake up early to snag a lounger. Book online or call (866)-716-8140 and ask for Promo Code JRY.
Hotel: Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco Regular Price: $391/night Location: SoMa/Financial District, San Francisco With astounding views from elegant, spacious rooms high up in a Financial District skyscraper and the best in pampering service, this Mandarin Oriental lives up to its luxury reputation. The downtown location makes it best for business travelers; others may miss notable extras like a spa or top restaurant. But the rooms and service are hard to beat. Note: This is a 4-for-3 deal, meaning you have to book three consecutive nights to receive the fourth one free. To book click here and select "Suite Temptations".
Hotel: W South Beach Regular Price: $658/night Location: South Beach, Miami The stunning new 312-room W South Beach -- located on the beach, on the northern outskirts of South Beach -- blends cute comforts, intricate design (that spares no expense), and flawless service. Large, modern rooms; terraces angled to overlook the ocean; elegant landscaping around the pool -- even without its spa (yet), the W tops the Miami greats. Note: rooms must be booked using any American Express card. Book online or call 1-877-822-0000 and mention promo codes TNR or TNH.
