Travel Bargains Abound
September 2, 2009 | Permalink
Regular Road Warrior readers know that Christopher Elliot is a favorite travel blogger. Chris recently interviewed noted travel psychologist Michael Brein, asking him about a survey on travel deals recently conducted by a company called Access America.
The survey asked people whether this was a good time to find great travel deals. By a substantial margin, respondents thought that low fares and other travel bargains are readily available. Given the huge promotions currently running on ExtendedStayHotels.com, Road Warrior heartily agrees.
Adventurers in search of great travel value need look no further than the last-minute week-end bargains offered under the Extended Stay Hotels’ Suite Savings program. Unlike some discount programs, Suite Savings isn’t just for out of the way places or available only during the off season.
To prove this point, Road Warrior looked up specials for Labor Day Weekend at the Extended Stay America Oakland - Alameda hotel near San Francisco, California. The savings on a room amounted to an amazing 20% discount... That is truly sweet!
Visitors will be ecstatic about more than the price, given the hotel’s great location. You are right on the inner harbor, about five minutes from Jack London Square, a place known for culture, cuisine and commerce on the Oakland waterfront. Filled with great restaurants, fun shops and interesting museums, you might be tempted to spend your entire weekend here - but don’t. There is much more to see and do.
If you want to spend a few hours in San Francisco, but don’t want to deal with navigating and parking a car, you are in luck. The Lake Merritt Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station is less than two miles from your hotel. Once on BART, you can access many of the fun and exciting attractions around the San Francisco Bay Area.
This is just one of the great opportunities available through Suite Savings. With nearly 700 hotels across the Unites States and in Canada, you are sure to find a fun and affordable place to spend your next week-end.
