Berlin's Quirky (and Affordable) Huettenpalast Hotel

Huettenpalast Hotel, Berlin

Sometimes when you live checking in and out of hotel rooms, it can all become a blur, so when you stumble upon one that not only offers something innovative and fun, but also stays with you long after you leave, you take note. During a recent backpacking trip through Europe I checked into a quirky Berlin stay called Huettenpalast Hotel (Hobrechtstrasse 66; 49-030/3730-5806; from $59 per night). Those looking for something completely different and charming will definitely find it here as the place can only be described as an indoor campsite. Six wooden cabins and vintage caravans just large enough to fit a double bed are scattered inside an old vacuum cleaner factory for a "room within a room" experience. The sunny campsite contains various seating options, shared bathrooms and showers (don't worry, they're incredibly clean), and a center dining area where little baggies of croissants, apples, and drinks are hung on a painted tree for breakfast each morning.

If you’re lucky enough to live in New York City—or happen to be visiting between July 16 and August 10, 2012—there’s an extra reason to dine around town: NYC Restaurant Week. Those who want to experience some of Gotham’s most popular restaurants at deeply discounted prices ($24 lunch; $35 dinner) have an opportunity to save even more on fondue and gougère at Artisanal Fromagerie, smoked brisket at Hill Country, and Harold Dieterle’s Thai creations at Kin Shop.

(As if we needed an excuse!) When you sync your American Express card with Foursquare and check into participating restaurants, you will automatically get an additional $5 off the bill of $24 or more.

NYC Rings in 2012 Gay Pride with Fab Hotel Deals

201206-b-w-hotel-pride-dealsjpg

It’s June and that means it’s LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Pride Month. Parades have been marching every weekend in cities and towns across the country. (For those who aren’t familiar: June was the chosen month as a nod to the Stonewall riots, regarded by most as the start of the Gay Rights movement.) This upcoming Sunday, the streets of NYC’s West Village will be lined with thousands of supporters, many from outside the city…and they’re going to need a place to crash. Lucky for them, lots of hotels are offering up great deals to show their support.
