Sofitel Hotels has a 3rd night free rate offer for stays from November 15 to January 15, 2013 they call the Winter Collection Rate. This special offer rate includes a complimentary chocolate buffet one day of your stay and a 3pm late checkout.
The 3rd night free rate is based on the Best Flexible Rate or typically called the Premium Rate on Accor’s website. The 33% discount is generally the best deal for hotels I checked, where the 3-for-2 rate could be located, compared to the 15-Day Advance Purchase discount of 20% to 30% for the Sofitel Hotel.
The Sofitel Winter Collection rate is prepaid and nonrefundable. The main advantage of this rate is a slightly greater discount and a 3-day advance purchase rate compared to the 15-day advance purchase rate normally offering the deepest discount.
Sofitel Hotels are a global luxury brand of Accor Hotels. There are a handful of Sofitel properties in the USA in locations like Beverly Hills, Miami, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Minneapolis. The San Francisco Bay Area Sofitel property is convenient for Oracle headquarters, but 20 miles south outside the city of San Francisco if you are a tourist.
