Expedia is offering $10 off per night on “Expedia Special Rate” hotel rates (minimum 2-night stay) with promo code 10WINTER. Book by April 30 for travel through May 31.
Not enough of a discount to make it worth my booking with Expedia (even as an “Expedia Elite”) when I won’t get elite benefits or stay credit with Starwood, Hilton, etc.
At least Marriott provides elite benefits on stays booked from any source (including Priceline). In fact, last weekend I spent a night at the Renaissance Boca Raton, Pricelined for $96 (web rate was $229). I got an upgraded to club level (last time I Pricelined there I had an executive suite), access to the closed club lounge (raid the refrigerator for bottled water), and coupons for full breakfast buffet (due to closed lounge). I’ve blogged about this hotel on a couple of my past half dozen stays here (e.g. here, and sorry that the photos are no longer displaying). They’ve always been exceptionally friendly, the pool area is very nice for a city hotel, and it’s well located for me.
