Hotwire.com is running a promotion right now for $49 per night at 4- and 5-star hotels in New York, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, Washington DC and Orlando for stays through July 8th. For those of you keeping score, yes this gives you the opportunity to stay in a major city for the Fourth of July holiday at $49 per night!
Though, there are a couple things to keep in mind.
Book by June 28
You have to make your booking by tomorrow evening (June 28th) in order to get this promotion. My advice — be spontaneous. Take a trip!
Valid on first two nights only
This $49 per night rate is valid on the first two nights of your stay only. Perfect for a Friday – Sunday booking, especially over the holiday weekend.
You don’t see the hotel up front
If you’re familiar with online travel agencies (OTAs) like Momondo, you know they sometimes offer “good” rates, but the major catch is that you don’t know which airline you’re flying until after you pay for it. In this case, these deals work the same way. You won’t know the name of the hotel until after you book the reservation.
Even with the fact that you don’t know the name of the hotel, this is still a solid deal for sure. I was able to get a room for two nights on a busy holiday weekend in Manhattan for $119.46 (though, I’m not actually booking it since I’ll be in Italy 🙂 )
Not bad at all for those of you wanting to take a trip for the holiday weekend.
(Shout out to Paul at Mile Nerd for this one)
