I have been travelling in several countries worldwide with more activity in Europe and central Asia but also some travel in the USA and Middle East, which, guess, is more related to business than leisure or holiday travel.
In my experience a hotel stay from a 4 star hotel and above, say 5 star and 5 star luxury hotels is a pleasant condition for any kind of travel and if possible, at least some times if not always, a luxury hotel stay should be in our plans.
These luxury hotels are quite expensive and it is good to know that, even in this luxury business, discounts and deals can be possible.
Let’s take a very popular city in the USA as New York,a very rich city considering both the tourist and business offer. We can run a search for New York luxury hotels and see if there are discounts available. As an example we run a search for arrival 08 November 2009 and departure 15 November 2009 which makes a one week stay. The following luxury hotels in New York are offering discounted rates:
– The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, five star hotel in Upper East Side Manhattan proposes this special offer and discount: “Stay 4 nights get the 5th night free,Upgrade to a suite and save”.
– The City Club Hotel, four star hotel in Midtown Manhattan proposal is: “Lastminute special – save 15%”
– Ink48, a Kimpton hotel, four star in similar location is offering a stunning “Save 48%” rate.
In my experience these are all good deals for a luxury hotel in New York City.
But let’s have a look to one entertainment destination and try, for the same period of time, to make a booking for a luxury hotel in Las Vegas.
The offers found in this case range from:
“Book Now and Save $20 Per Night,Get a $100 Wynn Resort Credit” of Wynn Las Vegas to
“$50 Gaming Credit, $25 Dinner Credit, & more” of the Venetian and the Palazzo or
“$50 Spa Credit Included – Also 4pm Checkout” of Trump International Hotel and
a great “Book Now and Save $20 Per Night,Get a $100 Encore Resort Credit” of Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
Without many doubts it is presently a good time to make an attempt at some luxury travel considering that even the most luxurious hotels are offering discounted rates.
Indeed the mentioned offers are available at the time of writing the blog though at the time of the next search rates could be even better or different hotels may have promotional plans available.
