Today Only: Discounted Loews Hotel Packages

Daily Getaways is back this year, which is a five week promotion intended to support US tourism. It offers opportunities to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages.

I’ve shared my initial thoughts on the packages for sale, including the offers for weeks one and two, and then separately the offers for weeks three, four, and five. Daily Getaways packages go on sale at 1PM ET every weekday, and the more popular packages sell out very quickly, so you’ll want to be fast, if interested.

Today at 1PM ET Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Loews hotel stays.

Discounted Loews packages available for sale

Daily Getaways is selling six types of Loews packages, as follows:

These packages are valid for stays between June 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017. The exception is the Loews Miami Beach, where the packages are only available January 1 through June 30, 2017, since the hotel is being renovated this year. There are some blackout dates, though the promotion terms don’t specify what exactly they are. Personally I doubt they’ll be that restrictive, assuming you’re not trying to go the week of Christmas, New Years, etc.

Is this promotion a good deal?

This is a niche deal, since these packages can collectively be redeemed at roughly 20 properties. However, if you could get value out of staying at one of these properties, this represents a great deal.

For example, you can get two nights in a suite at the Loews New York for $1,000. The paid rate for that room is usually close to $2,500 including tax.

You can get an incredible suite at the Loews San Francisco for two nights for $1,300, while the paid rate for the same stay would be almost $3,000 with tax.

Of course these are luxury deals, so not everyone will want to spend $500-650 for a hotel suite.

Fortunately there are plenty of other great values as well.

For example, you can book two nights at a Loews “luxury” level hotel for $275, which is $137.50 per night. Take the Loews Santa Monica, for example. Weekend rates there regularly run $500+ per night.

Bottom line

I’m struggling to find an instance where these Daily Getaways packages wouldn’t be considerably cheaper than outright booking a Loews hotel. So I guess it comes down to whether you’d actually get value out of staying at a Loews property. There are lots of creative ways to book hotel stays with points nowadays, so everyone values stuff like this differently.

For the right person this represents an exceptional deal.

Do you plan on buying a Loews hotel stay through Daily Getaways?

  1. These article’s are the perfect sedative for people wanting to sleep.
    Keep up the boring blogs mr slappig

  2. What is the fascination of travel bloggers with hotel suites? “For example, you can get two nights in a suite at the Loews New York for $1,000. The paid rate for that room is usually close to $2,500 including tax.” Why would I want to book a suite in NY? I understand sometimes it is convenient when you have kids to have a bigger room, etc.. BUT I usually don’t go to hotels to enjoy their bedrooms. If the hotel is located in a nice city I will spend most of my time outside enjoying the city, visiting places, eating in nice restaurants. If it is a resort, I will spend most of my time on the beach or enjoying the hotel pools, etc… Thus, I couldn’t care less if my room is a suite or not as long as it is clean and comfortable.

  3. Santastico,

    if you don’t care, then don’t book a suite? 🙂

    Look man, this website is for folks who want to enjoy luxury at more manageable prices. If you can afford to pay for first/business class outright or you don’t care how you reach your destination—economy or business are the same—then you should not be reading this site.

    No offense!

  4. @R: You totally missed my point. I will not even waste my time responding to you. No offense! 🙂

  5. @ Santastico — I’m not it’s a “fascination,” as much as it’s often just practical to have a suite. In this case it simply represents a good value, since base rooms at the Loews New York can be $500 per night, so you can get a suite for the same price. I agree there’s not a *ton* of value in having a suite in a city like New York, but suites *are* very important to me when traveling internationally, especially if I’m with Ford and dealing with jetlag. I tend to stay up during East Coast business hours even in Asia, so being able to have a separate room from which I can work while Ford sleeps at night helps us both stay sane. The same is true at resorts, where I spend more time in rooms.

  6. I am really worried about blackout dates that are not detailed.

    I wanted to get Loews Boston for the Boston Marathon in 2017. I think they might consider it dates blocked, do not you think? Any idea how could I check?

  7. All of you people stay away on Friday from the Daily Getaways website :-p .

    @Lucky – Please don’t post about Friday’s offer. I’ve waiting a month for it !! 😉 Maybe at 1.05Pm is fine ;-D
