UPDATE #1: Looks like the fare is gone. Congrats to those who jumped on it. Now let’s see if they honor it!
UPDATE #2: Received an email from Hilton and they are not honoring the rate. They are however offering the following: Discounting the room 50% off the current rate – $109 + tax. If you booked a higher end room, your rate will be more. Additionally, they are extended either: (1) a 25% discount at our food and beverage outlets during your stay (for parties of up to 4 people); or (2) a 25% discount on our best available rate for one future room reservation during the period of January 1, 2012-March 31, 2012.
If you are planning to go to New York City around New Years, you can stay at the Hilton Times Square for $20 the night of January 1st and $30 the night of January 2nd. This is clearly a mistake in the system, so let’s see if they will honor it. If you are interested, I would absolutely act now before they notice this glitch. I booked this hotel and received the confirmation for $26.45 for the first night and $37.93 for the 2nd night!
Even if you live in the city, could be a fun experience just to stay in a hotel in Times Square (although I avoid it like the plague)!
