Can You Really Get This View at the Parc 55 Hotel for $99?

We clicked through on a recent USA Today article about San Francisco's newest hotel deals because, duh, we love deals. But we were also swayed by the picture that went along with the story.

Taken at the Parc 55 Hotel, the picture shows two things we love the most at HotelChatter: laptops with internet connections and amazing killer views (oh, and wine). USA Today says the hotel is currently running a $99 a night deal for a standard room. But we want THAT room. How do we get it?

Perusing the hotel's website to check out their room descriptions, we see that there are over 1,000 hotel rooms in the place. Which makes us think that getting a room with that kind of view is going to be very hard indeed. And it turns out we are right: if your budget is not busted like ours currently is, you could splurge for one of the 15 executive suites which have bay-style windows (and is where this picture was taken).

These rooms start at $599 a night, although the hotel has discounted rates through October. We found a Skyline Suite for $419 for next weekend. (A standard room was $139).

Another option is to bring your laptop down to the hotel's club lounge. This space is for folks who reserve rooms on the 27 - 32nd floors and it serves complimentary continental breakfast in the mornings.

To be fair, almost all the rooms have huge windows so getting a view without booking a suite or a club room is do-able. But as is usually the case with room views, you will need to pay a little extra. Newly renovated rooms with a guaranteed view (on floors 20-26) were going for $167.20 next weekend. And about the internet on your laptop? That will also cost you $17.
