Last Minute Labor Day Deal!

For the last two weeks I had been searching frantically for a Labor Day weekend trip into the Rocky Mountains. My two target were Steamboat Springs and Breckenridge. I tried a variety of searches through the usual suspects; Travelzoo Supersearch, Kayak, Expedia, Hotwire, and Priceline. I used different travel combinations such as leaving on Saturday and coming back on Monday, leaving on Friday and coming back on Sunday, and even shortening it to one night to offset the jacked-up hotel prices for the holiday weekend. That was just it, I couldn’t find a deal justified in my mind where the price of the hotel matched the value.

By Tuesday of this week I had all but given up when a light shone at the end of the tunnel. I went back into Travelzoo and instead of using Supersearch, I went to Travel Deals, clicked on hotels, and then chose the Seattle and Mountain West region. Low and behold a deal had been found! There it was about three options down the page, a stay at the 41/2 star Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa at 60% off. Where the price showing at other travel search engines showed $259, we got it through this special for $109. In addition the deal offered free valet parking, a waived resort fee ($25) and 25% off spa treatments. All in all we are looking at a savings over $200 a night. The only catch was that the deal begins today, so we delayed our trip a little bit.  Regardless, I am just so pleased we were able to find something, this being one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. What was your most memorable holiday travel deal? Next week I will return to begin breaking down my stay at the Park Hyatt and the accompanying village of Beaver Creek.

    Right up my alley. Will be looking forward to the report detailing the trip!

    • Thanks, the bottom picture is of the village so I don’t know which places they actually are. In deed, next week there will be pictures of the Park Hyatt with accompanying commentary!
