Get a Summer Deal in January (Down Under)
Down Under where everything is back-to-front, the Stamford hotel chain have just launched their Summer Saver deals. Stamford actually has a chain of 10 luxury hotels across Australia and New Zealand, and the new offer gives a couple overnight accommodation and breakfast for only AUS$130 (about an even hundred bucks). The special runs from December 15 through to the end of January (with New Year's Eve being a blackout night, not surprisingly).
Our favorite Stamford is in the Stamford Grand in Glenelg, the beach suburb of South Australian capital Adelaide. Not just because Glenelg is such a great sounding word (and reads the same forwards and backwards), but because the hotel really is directly on the beachfront with exquisite views. The laidback streets of Glenelg and the nearby tram that takes you directly into the city center all combine to make the Stamford Grand's location something a bit special. The rooms have also been newly refurbished (they did need it, we'll admit) so for a hundred dollars, you can't really go wrong here.
