Does spending six nights in upscale London hotels for $600 sound like a good summer deal?
The IHG two nights for the price of one is one of the best offers available for summer 2010 travel in Europe through September 27, 2010. IHG 2-for-1 Reservation link.
The IHG two-for-one hotel nights offer is based on the Best Flexible Rate. Availability is primarily for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday arrivals, but most participating hotels appear to allow the rate any two consecutive nights of the week. Rates are variable for different nights of the week.
These IHG 2-for-1 rates are prepaid, nonrefundable and no changes allowed.
London has enough participating hotels that spending a week in Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels in central London can be done for about $100US per night and no extra charge for a second adult in the London hotels. Two kids can even stay free and at these rates you might be able to splurge for a cheap suite.
A Danube River view at the InterContinental Budapest at slightly over $80 per night is a traveler’s Eastern European dream price for a luxury hotel, although a second adult in your IC room can raise the cost of this room by another $50 per night according to the fine print for this specific hotel.
Here are sample hotels and rates found across Europe checking random dates. The rates shown below are the lowest rates listed. Many hotels have multiple rates and may even allow 2-for-1 room rates in suites.
