Hot on the heels of La Quinta's "Hot for Teacher" promotion we recently reported on comes another deal for exclusively for those grooming our future's leaders. Along with reading, writing, and arithmetic, add "rollback"—in prices, that is—to the list of Rs.

The JW Marriott Denver at Cherry Creek is jumping on the teacher appreciation bandwagon, hoping to attract a slew of recess-seeking educators to its Rocky Mountain-located digs. Through the end of this year, they're offering all teachers and administrators 50 percent off their nightly room rate, with prices starting at $99 on weekends and $149 for weekdays. We would've thought those prices would be reversed, but it works out nicely for three-day weekends and full-time school employees.

Appropriate accommodations for what we're deeming "sanity sessions" (because teenagers, tweens, and hyperactive eight-year-olds aren't always sunshine and rainbows, rewarding as the job may be), the JW Marriott embodies the term "retreat." It's marble baths, cozy fireplaces, and massages inside the hotel, while you can venture into Denver to partake in outdoor activities in a city that gets 300 days of sunshine per year, as we just learned. Reviews tag its staff as doting and helpful, with a mile (-high) of praise for the idyllic mountain setting.

But note these important details about the deal: It is subject to availability, there may blackout dates, and it doesn't include room tax. In other words, book sooner rather than later and get directly in touch with the hotel to truly make sure you're getting the full discount. You can use a rate code if you book online (code: D3Q), or call 866.706.7814 to make your reservation. That's another "R" that comes in handy.
