There are promotions that are useful and then promotions that are just downright cool (and useless). This one definitely falls in the latter category, as I doubt Las Vegas hotel hopping is in the cards for most of us for Thanksgiving.
I’m a huge fan of Virtuoso and American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, which offer additional benefits for stays at many luxury hotels. Fine Hotels & Resorts is available to American Express Platinum and Centurion card members, and gets you a room upgrade upon availability, 4PM guaranteed check-out, free breakfast, and a further hotel amenity (usually a $100 food and beverage or spa credit).
As long time readers will know, Fine Hotels & Resorts almost caused me to move to Tianjin, China back in March, and to Phoenix, Arizona over the summer. Given that many hotels offer $100 credits as their amenity, it can be especially lucrative for short stays, since those credits are on a per stay (and not per night) basis.
Anyway, back to the actual point of this post. Reader Jamison Tweeted me about the lowest Fine Hotels & Resorts rate I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen a Fine Hotels & Resorts rate dip below $100, though the night before Thanksgiving the rate at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas is $77.
So while this may be totally useless, it’s also totally awesome in my opinion. Has anyone ever seen a Fine Hotels & Resorts rate of under $100? Can anyone beat $77?
