Best Money-Saving Hotel Tips
Extended-stay hotels may have a ho-hum reputation, but for value-seeking guests, they are one of the best travel finds. You can save money on meals by using the in-room kitchens, and rates are usually lowest on weekends, when corporate demand wanes. Major chains are responding by adding style-conscious brands: Hyatt replaced Summerfield Suites with the more modern Hyatt House, where guests can give grocery orders to the hotel staff and grill their own dinner on outdoor barbecues. Starwood’s eco-conscious Element hotels feature energy-efficient appliances. Also new is the Sonesta ES brand, with 17 outposts, including Orlando, Florida, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
