Several people have asked me about good hotel deals over the New Year’s holiday period. In city after city the Hilton Holiday Season Sale for stays from December 14 through January 7, 2013 is by far the best hotel rate deal happening.
Full-service hotels like Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria and Hilton Grand Vacations are 50% off. Other Hilton brands of Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites are 30% off.
These rate discounts are not available December 31.
The discount rates are even available for high category rooms, including suites at many participating hotels.
For many hotels I checked the cancellation policy is generally day before arrival with no penalty.
