  1. The discount for Nha Trang equalled $14 for 3 nights and you didn’t get breakfast versus their Early Breaks. Example- 3 nights pay 2 $277 (based on unrestricted no breakfast rate of $120 per night).

    Early Breaks $291 for 3 nights with free breakfast, $14 for 3 nights for 2 people to have breakfast is a better deal, so be careful this isn’t a great deal everywhere, which is something that should have been mentioned in the blog post itself.

  2. Any discount deal is rarely a great deal everywhere.

    I could have done ten hotel samples and analyze discounts.

    I could have done two hotels in detail and look for discount comparisons to other special offer rates.

    That all takes time and I didn’t do that kind of analysis for this Accor sale.

    Just based on the fact that the sale is 33% off BAR tells me there is a good chance that I can likely find another type of discount for at least 20% off. And it might even have better cancellation terms or added benefits like breakfast.

    1,200 hotels are participating in the sale. Consumers should always do rate comparisons.
