Hotels.com is having a Tuesday sale that boasts of discounts at 100 hotels for up to 40% off, this and every Tuesday from midnight to midnight. You must travel in most cases by May 5, 2009, but in some cases the deals are good through the end of the month or even later. Some of the hotels offer deeper discounts for longer stays; you get 10% for one night, but 20% for 2 nights, and 30% off for 3 nights or more, so check on the details for the hotel deals that interest you. Hotel categories range from one star to four, so if you're on a budget (and who isn't these days), you can still enjoy a savings.
If you want to stay at the historic Queen Mary in Long Beach, rooms are only $159 a night or stay on the beach in Santa Monica at the Loew's for $199. If you want to travel to Chicago to the fabulous James Hotel, you get 40% off with the $199 per night rate.
If you don't find anything in this week's discounts, sign up for their newsletter so that you get next Tuesday's participating hotels (the properties change weekly).
