I saved 10% off room rate for a March 2019 hotel stay booking in Greece

Nearly all my hotel stays are major chains. I recall only two hotel stays at independent hotels in the past three years of my travels. However, I needed a hotel on the island of Crete in Greece next month. There are no major chain hotels in the area I plan to stay.

I had my eye on a hotel property in Chania most of this past month. The lowest price I found on Feb 5 was $32.98 per night for $149.72 after tax for a 4-night stay. The price increased to $173.72 with breakfast. Those rates went up two weeks ago after that date.

Yesterday, hotels.com showed the rate as $37.88 per night with breakfast for $171.96 after tax for 4 nights. The price dropped 10% to $34.09 per night after applying the 10% discount code ‘BLOSSOM’ on the payment page for a final total rate of $156.81 after tax. While $15.15 off the total rate is not a huge savings, it is the lowest rate I found for the hotel after watching rates for the past month.

$39.20 per night for a hotel in Greece with daily buffet breakfast is a deal I happily pay for a stay in a place where chain hotels are not an alternative option.
