In mid-February I first wrote about how Daily Getaways will be returning this year. For those of you not familiar, Daily Getaways is a promotion, sponsored by the US Travel Association, which has been offered annually since 2011 to encourage US tourism.

The promotion consists of all kinds of travel packages, including offers on car rentals, hotel stays, loyalty program points, and theme park admission. A few weeks ago I shared a preview of the promotions that are available this year, and now we’ve already seen a couple of weeks of these promotions, including opportunities to purchase discounted Choice Privileges pointsIHG Rewards Club pointsHertz Gold Plus Rewards points, and more.

Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted stays at Loews hotels.

Like most Daily Getaways packages, this one won’t be for everyone, though I do think there’s value to be had. There are six types of packages available here, each for two nights at certain Loews properties. If you buy one of these packages, you can stay between June 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019.

The packages available for sale are as follows (if you click on the below links you can see all the details):

Loews-San-Francisco
Loews San Francisco Bridge-to-Bridge Suite

Four of the six packages are for specific suites at specific hotels.

The “Luxury Loews Hotel” package can be used for any of the following properties:

This is basically an opportunity to book the above hotels for $137.50 per night including taxes, which is a steal in many cases.

Hotel-1000-Seattle
Hotel 1000 Seattle

The “Luxury Loews Resorts” package can be used at the following properties:

Loews-Miami
Loews Miami Beach Resort

In almost all cases this represents significant savings over the retail cost of a stay, assuming you’re not traveling in the complete off-season.

Lastly, remember that Daily Getaways purchases should be coded as travel, so if you do make a purchase you’ll want to do so with a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® (3x points), Citi ThankYou® Premier Card (3x points), or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card (2x points). Personally I value Ultimate Rewards points at 1.7 cents each, so using the Sapphire Reserve would be like getting a 5.1% “return” on spend.

Bottom line

While this is a niche deal, I do think there are some great deals to be had here. Staying at a property like the Hotel 1000 in Seattle for $137.50 per night in summer is an exceptional deal. Similarly, if you were willing to pay cash for some of these suites, the package costs are significantly lower than the retail costs. However, keep in mind that these certificates are only valid for 13 months, so I wouldn’t buy them without a specific stay in mind.

Does anyone plan on buying one of these Loews hotel packages?

  1. Are there only Loews in America or ar there any in Europe? I had never heard of this hotel brand

  2. Thanks for the heads up!

    I am so awash with free hotel nights and points that I am skipping this offer (brand) to let others a better chance.

  3. Was one of the 20 winners last year. Very very poor availability trying to use in Miami in the winter. I think there was 1 weekend available between beginning of Feb and end of March.

    I will not be buying again this year.

  4. @Lucky

    Thanks for the analysis. Are these capacity controlled? If the dates are as restricted as @PJs experience was, then they don’t seem to good.

  5. I’d definitely buy the $275 one to use on an upcoming trip to Chicago, but without knowing the blackout dates in advance, it’s a no-go. That’s the downside to having a specific stay in mind.

  6. I’m a hard-core Mandarin Oriental fan, so I jumped on the offer for the bridge-to-bridge suite, which typically retails for 1500 or 1800+ per night (cray I know). 2 nights for 1300, I’m willing to take the risk to see how bad the blackout dates are. Winter in Miami is naturally gonna be hard, but summer in SF? Hopefully I can get the dates I want.
