Even More Private Hotel Sales: Kayak.com and The James Hotel

It's a really good time to be looking for a hotel. Aside from hitting up the usual booking sites to find deals, there's a new trend going on with "private sales" like the ones we've already covered at Jetsetter.com and Tablet Hotels. Two new places to the private sales? Kayak.com and The James Hotel in Chicago.

Kayak's private sale simply asks you to sign up for it. It's really open to anyone who will volunteer their email address. As for what sort of deals you can get, the private sale hasn't launched yet but the site promises 50 percent off hotel rooms. So we are eagerly awaiting this sale.

The James' private sale is a little bit different. It's actually called the Insider's Deal and is running from until January 17th. Guests are being offered a rate of $129 a night with a complimentary upgrade.

Guests will also received a $50 parking inclusion or food and beverage credit. Considering how much we've been harping on hotel parking fees, $50 is a nice incentive. And if you don't have your car with you when you stay, you can put that towards dinner at David Burke's Primehouse or the Jbar lounge. You can even use it for room service.

To book, go to www.jameshotels.com/specials. Enter in PRIVATEDBP for the food and drink credit or if you will be arriving in your car, enter code PRIVATEPARK to receive your credit. But hurry. Not only do you have just six days left, the deal is only good for stays through March 31.
