Today Only: Discounted Fairmont Hotel Stays In Hawaii & San Francisco

Daily Getaways is back this year, which is a five week promotion intended to promote US tourism. It offers opportunities to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages. Today marks the first day of the last week of the promotion.

Daily-Getaways-2017

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 act fast, if interested. Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to buy discounted Fairmont vacation packages. There are two types of packages available, and 10 of each for sale.

6 Nights In Hawaii Fairmont For $2,178

Through this offer you’ll receive six Ovation Rewards certificates, each redeemable for a one night stay and breakfast for two at your choice of two Fairmont Hawaii properties (The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui or the The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii). The certificates don’t expire, and can be split up, meaning you don’t have to stay six nights at once. You can make six one night stays, two three night stays, etc. The Maui property is also all suites, which is a great feature to have in a place like Hawaii.

Fairmont also offered this through Daily Getaways last year, though the price was lower. This year it’s $2,178, while last year it was $1,800. So you’re paying $363 per night including breakfast for a stay here. When purchasing these certificates you also don’t have to pay taxes and fees.

To compare this to the revenue rates, these hotels easily go for $600+ per night in the high season not including breakfast.

In the off season you might find rates at these hotels that are ~$360 including tax, but they generally don’t even include breakfast. So at worst you’ll break even in the low season.

The savings are huge, assuming you have the desire to stay at one or both of the hotels for six nights in the high season.

3 Nights At Fairmont San Francisco For $834

Through this offer you’ll receive three Ovation Rewards certificates, each redeemable for a one night stay and breakfast for two at the Fairmont San Francisco. The certificates don’t expire, and can be split up, meaning you don’t have to stay all three nights at once.

So you’re paying ~$278 per night including breakfast for a stay here. San Francisco hotels have a ~16% tax, meaning that this is the equivalent of a ~$233 base rate.

San Francisco is a super expensive hotel market, and rates at this hotel are consistently over $233 per night not including taxes. More often than not I’m finding that flexible rates not including breakfast are $400+ per night.

Again, everyone has to decide how much they’d otherwise be willing to pay for such a stay, but San Francisco isn’t a cheap hotel market, so this is certainly worthy of consideration.

Bottom line

While this won’t be for everyone, these can represent a great value for anyone who is visiting Hawaii or San Francisco. Given that these certificates come with breakfast and you don’t have to pay extra in taxes, this represents a big discount over what you’d otherwise typically pay. Furthermore, it’s great that these certificates don’t expire.

However, unless you were planning on using them in the next year or so, I wouldn’t speculatively buy them.

There are only a total of 20 packages available, so if you’re interested you’ll want to be ready to pull the trigger at 1PM ET today…

Comments

  1. It looks like there are no black out dates. Is that your read of the T&C as well?

    Also, I assume you do not have to use all 6 certificates at once.

  2. Hyatt should buy Fairmont and revamp these properties, has Fairmont spent a penny on these properties in the last 10 years? Fairmont was once a good small brand but has been neglected badly.

  3. I’ve stayed at the Orchid before and my question would be – what sort of room do you get? I’m guessing it’s a mountain view. If so, this offer isn’t that great unless you’re ok with that. If it’s an ocean view room, then this is a great deal.

  4. The Fairmont SF has the downside of being located at the very top of a hill, so it is quite a hike to get there and back if you’re planning to walk around the city.

  5. Tried for this one. I was refreshing the SF page once every few seconds and it had already sold out by the time I got in at 18:14:03. Alas…

  6. @EricJ The Fairmont SF was renovated a few years ago (maybe 2014). My wife and I stayed there post renovation, and our guest room was beautiful.
