· Groupon: It's been a while since we used a Groupon but if you're headed to Chicago you can try the soon-to-open Ivy Boutique Hotel where rooms come equipped with espresso machines, mirror TVs, and sea salt soaking tubs and all guests are checked in via iPads. Groupon is offering $229 a night for a one-night stay in a King Suite which typically go for $389 a night. Regular rooms at the hotel, opening May 24, start at $299 a night.
· Choice Hotels: Summer is nearly here and the gift card promos are back in full force like this new one from Choice Hotels. Choice has a wide variety of hotel brands to choose from, most of them come with free WiFi. The Two Stays Pay promo give guests who stay two separate times at a Choice Hotel enough Choice Privileges rewards points which can be redeemed for a $50 gift card. Obvs, to get this deal you must be a member of the Choice Privileges rewards program and you must register in advance at ChoiceHotels.com. It's a little bit of work but hey $50 is $50.
· QuikBook.com: Our go-to booking site's latest Invitation Only sale is giving you a chance to check out the newly glam Roger Hotel in Manhattan's Murray Hill nabe (formerly the Roger Williams) for as low as $159 for any Thursday-Sunday stay from June 29 to August 26. We actually found rates that low for the weekend of June 29. Not bad for a newly spruced up hotel in Manhattan and a lot less than the predicted new rates. Renovations are currently going on now, so wait until later in June to get the full effect. The catch is you MUST BOOK BY FRIDAY at 5pm ET. If you haven't already, sign up for Quikbook's Invitation Only Sales, register here.
*PEOPLE: As always, read the fine print before you book. Several flash sale sites requires full payment and no refunds at the time of booking. Other sites have very strict cancellation policies. Be sure to read all of these before you hand over your credit card. Or we will spank you. And not in a "hurt so good" way.
