· $83 April Fool's Rate at Sheraton New Orleans: No kidding, the Sheraton New Orleans is dropping its pants, er, rates to $83 a night on April 1. For real! Why the $83 rate? That's because the hotel first opened to guests on April 1, 1983. Now the Canal Street hotel is sporting a grand new look thanks to a recently completed a $50 million renovation. To get your $83 room rate, call 1-888-627-7033 and mention promotion code NOFOOL. Regular rooms start at $129. Oh and if you somehow saved your receipt from your stay at the hotel in April 1983, you will get a three-day stay at the $83 rate. You must show your historic receipt upon check-in to redeem the offer.
· Soft Opening Discount at New Caribbean Resort: Las Verandas Hotel and Villas on the Western Caribbean island of Roatán (off the coast of Honduras) just opened on March 1 with 60 luxury rooms, 32 free-standing villas and a 6,000-sq.ft. spa. The resort will fully open in July but from now through May 31st, you can score a 30 percent discount. Rates for golf course rooms start at $295 a night before discounts. Ocean view rooms are $325 a night, also before discounts. So when you call 1-855-224-6620 to book, ask for the soft opening rate to get the 30 percent off. 30% off all rack rates for stays during March 1 to May 31, 2013.
While hotel prices in New York City and Europe are making U.S. visitors gasp in astonishment, in Central America the dollar still rules.
Take Honduras, where the best hotel in town by the famous Maya ruins of Copán will cost you $80 for a double, at Hotel Marina Copán. So step up big spender and get an executive suite, such as number 331 in this video tour.
Here's what he had to say about Rubi's:
Room 6 is the second best room in the 12-room place. It has air conditioning (which I didn't use), a private bath with hot water (which I did use), a mini fridge, kitchen privileges, a hammock out front and this view. The only room better is number 12, on the second floor, directly above Room 6: it has a balcony overlooking the water. I paid $26 a night, but the hotel was only half full. You could probably swing a deal on a longer stay.
No, we're not Doomsday theorists. The End of the World is actually the name of a tiny 12-room guest resort on Guanaja, one of The Bay Islands which makes up a floating constellation off the coast of Honduras.
Discovered by Columbus on July 30, 1502, it's the least developed of the three. While Roatan grows bigger and bigger every day with its non-stop commercial carrier flights and giant cruise ships, this little-known eden on the water at the tail-end sounds like it's still relatively virginal -- and decidedly groovy.
The End of the World has 12 cabanas that overlook a pristine beach that looks close enough to tumble into from bed. It has a tiki bar and restaurant, scuba and snorkeling gear in the dive shop, kayaking, fishing, and a private mooring dock.
There's also a waterfall on the premises that provides drinking water (but no Playboy Mansion style grotto), and the two-story clubhouse makes for some prime sunset viewing.
More on the End of the World after the jump.
