Three weeks ago I suggested San Francisco Starwood Hotels had optimistically high hotel rates for the July 4 weekend. Rates today for this July 4 weekend have dropped to their lowest level for six of the seven San Francisco city hotels (Le Meridien had an incredible $109 rate last week).
AAA rates are at their lowest level of the past three weeks for all seven San Francisco Starwood Hotels just three days before the weekend.
Four of the seven Starwood hotels loaded their lowest rates of the month just today.
Last minute rate drops are the primary reason to avoid prepaid, nonrefundable room rates.
Update: July 1 – Rates dropped even more down to $129 today for the Westin St. Francis for tomorrow night. Westin Market Street dropped to $109. These are the lowest rates of the past month for these two hotels. Le Meridien dropped to $129 today for this weekend.
