Best Hotel Deals - Search

New York, N.Y. –, the online hotel discounter did an exhaustive analysis to help travelers negotiate their way through the season’s high hotel rates and locate the best last minute hotel deals. The information is now being made public in hopes of aiding savvy travelers in their last minute destination hotel search.

When last minute travel is handled with knowledge of seasonal hotel price trends, some of the best priced deals will be uncovered by simply keeping expert travel tips in mind.

General Tips

- Book early: Like the airlines, hotel rates fluctuate and they may decline just as quickly as they rise. However, unlike the airlines, customers can book a hotel through today and pay nothing until check out. If needed, reservations can be changed or canceled with no penalties or fees.

- Pick the right dates: If your plans are flexible, try to visit in the days leading up to a holiday, for example between December 17 and New Year's. Occupancy rates sink during that period and the hotel rates follow.

- Arrive on a Sunday night: Sunday night rates are usually 30-45% less than their Monday through Saturday counterparts. This time of year, savings on even one night could be significant.

- Use the Sort feature: The Sort feature on’s results page lets customers sort by price or neighborhood to weigh all options and find the best hotel deal.

- Try hotels further away from city’s Main attractions: For example, as soon as you step off the island of Manhattan, prices drop. And with NYC’s top-notch mass transit system, you can be in and out of Manhattan in less time than a cross-town cab ride! So if you are visiting NYC, don’t neglect hotels in Brooklyn, Queens and even Hotels along the Hudson River area of New Jersey.

- If all else fails, try to come after New Year’s: January hotel rates tend to be 30% to 45% lower than December’s rates.
