When It Comes to Hotels, Take Your Mom’s Advice: Don’t Settle

2 of 11

Social media is rife with deals. I knew I could do better than the $200-per-night rooms I found on traditional online booking sites and apps. For my trip, I searched “Portland hotel deal” on Twitter and scored, via Travelzoo, a $119 room at Hotel Modera for a Friday night (a savings of $40). In the meantime, I dropped notes to several hotels via Facebook to see if any discounts were available for my Saturday night in the city. Hotel Lucia quickly responded with a special $161 rate (15 percent off) and an offer of free Wi-Fi (worth $10).

Cheat Sheet: Looking for a discounted room? On Twitter, try searching combinations of your destination name and the words hotel, deal, promo, promo code, discount, and sale.
