Hotel Upgrade: Go where there are empty rooms
During the economic downturn, certain destinations have had lower
occupancy rates, particularly those with high room counts: Las Vegas,
San Francisco, New York, Hawaii, and Orlando, Florida. “Hotels that
can’t sell expensive suites bump people up so they can resell the
standard rooms, which are in higher demand,” explains Nicole Hockin, a
spokesperson for Hotels.com. Likewise, look to resorts
in the off- and shoulder seasons, when fewer suites are booked.
