Rue La La is probably my favorite discount shopping site where packages show up on my doorstep on a weekly basis. Typically it is mostly limited to clothing discounts, but today they are offering Hyatt hotels at a discounted rate:
- Hyatt at the Bellevue – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- Hyatt Regency Bellevue – Bellevue, Washington
- Hyatt Regency Boston – Boston, Massachusetts
- Park Hyatt Chicago – Chicago, Illinois
- Hyatt Regency Scottsdale – Scottsdale, Arizona
- Park Hyatt Toronto – Toronto, Canada
- Park Hyatt Washington – Washington, DC
I found that most of these hotels are offering these discount packages seven days a week (although some are limited to just the weekday or weekend). They all have blackout dates listed that vary from each hotel but include holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, MLK weekend, and Presidents Day weekend. Make sure to check out the specifics for the hotel you are interested (if any actually make sense from a cost perspective).
Now, I did not do a cost analysis on each hotel and which one is better/worse than the rate on Hyatt.com, but I would definitely do that before pulling the plug on any of them. Many times corporate rates, or even AAA rates can be cheaper than “discounted” sites, but you never know – worth doing a cost analysis to see.
While I’ve never purchased a hotel discount voucher through this site before, I believe it is similar to reserving a hotel room through a third party booking site. This means you will probably not receive any base or bonus points for your stay and it will not count towards earning status. If it the prices are comparable to what you find out Hyatt.com, reserve through Hyatt.com and not through this third party site.
One other thing to note – these vouchers are non-refundable and have expiration dates tied to them, so be 100% sure of your travel plans!
