How to Stay in Style: Tips for Staying for Less in a Fancy Hotel

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Is 2014 the year of the vacation? Maybe so, because it seems like everyone is planning one.  And that is such a welcome economic change from just a few short years ago.  But with so many folks planning their getaways, are there deals enough for everyone?

In top cities, prices will be up in popular seasons and availability may be less, so how do you still score great deal at stylish hotels? Here are my top travel tips for staying for less on your upcoming vacation.

Luxury for LessCB063916
Visit destinations that are more deal-prone.  According to’s latest Hotel Price Index (HPI), you can find five-star luxury for less than $200 a night in European cities such as Warsaw, Budapest, and Lisbon.

Where else can you find hotel rooms for affordable prices? Not only is Las Vegas the most popular city for American travelers, it’s also one of the most affordable cities to visit. Orlando, Atlanta, Portland and Denver are right in the mix for both popularity and price, according to the HPI.

Social Media
Don’t just share your vacation photos on your favorite social media sites, use them to help you have a better trip BEFORE you even leave.

  1. Follow your favorite hotels, restaurants and airlines in cities you want to visit to stay on top of any special deals that may become available. Hotels often broadcast deals on social media first. You can also do a keyword search with (hotel name and #deal) on Twitter.
  2. Be social and interact via Facebook and Twitter with the hotel and other places you plan to stay or visit on your trip.  Sharing your excitement could land you an upgrade.

Club Level Value
If I’m going to stay at a hotel that offers a club level floor, I often try to book a room on it regardless of my loyalty program status.  Sure, the prices are higher than a standard room but the perks that come along with it are often a better deal than paying for WiFi, drinks, breakfasts and snacks a la carte.  Don’t be fooled: club-level rates at brands such as Sheraton, Radisson, Ritz-Carlton, Fairmont, and Marriott may be higher, but they can offer real savings so consider all your costs before you book a less expensive room.
