Accor Hotels M-Gallery 2-for-1 Rates outside France

Two-for-one hotel offers catch my attention.  An upper upscale hotel room in Amsterdam, M-Gallery’s well-reviewed The Convent Hotel for $120 per night October 15-17 is a recession era bargain. When TripAdvisor guests rave about a hotel in Europe, you know you have made a decent choice. Expedia was asking $186 and Orbitz $175 for the same dates the room is available for $120 through this special rate offer.

The M-Gallery Hotels “2 nights for the price of 1” offer is valid through October 31 for hotels outside of France. M-Gallery is a new Accor hotel brand with many of the hotels spun off from former Sofitel Hotels.

The M-Gallery homepage has a running slideshow of these high-end hotel properties in locations as varied as Brazil and Bangkok, Melbourne to the Dominican Republic. The hotel webpages are worth a browse just for the sake of admiring the beautiful hotels and descriptions in a free internet Conde Nast-type armchair travel experience.
