DEALS, DEALS, DEALS*
· The Hampton Inn Miami Brickell for $149 for Heat-Thunder Finals: Staying in Miami for the NBA Finals? The rather new Hampton Inn Miami Brickell is advertising rooms starting at $149 a night with ticket holders getting an extra 10 percent off. The Heat is On package also includes pre-game drink vouchers at the hotel's lobby bar, 50 percent off parking, free WiFi and On the House hot breakfast served daily. Indeed, there are rates at this price for June 17 when the Heat return to Miami. Protip: Florida residents can save an extra $18. Book via www.hamptoninnmiamibrickell.com.
· The Westin Nova Scotian for $109: Sojourning in Halifax this summer? The Westin Nova Scotian, overlooking the Halifax Harbour and with its own train station, has rates for $109 a night. The rates are good for arrivals on all days and we found them for the weekend of July 13. Upgrades to Harbour View rooms can be had for $30 extra per night. Book online using code LASTMIN1. While the rate applies for stays through September 3rd, you must book by June 18.
· Affordable Paris, Thanks to Concorde Hotels: Paris is an expensive city but staying there can be done for less with Concorde Hotels which are offering 45 percent off their rooms on Travelzoo. Rates start at just $115 a night from July 13-September 9 but beware: booking is pre-paid and non-refundable. We recommend the Hotel Lutetia where we and Dita Von Teese have stayed.
· 50 Percent off at Accor Hotels Worldwide: From now through June 22nd, all Accor Hotels worldwide (about 1,300 of 'em) are 50 percent off for stays from July 6 to September 2nd, thanks to Accor's new Super Sale. The catch is you must be a member of the Accor loyalty program, LeClub. Don't worry, it's free to join. If you'd rather not, you can still get 40 percent off your stays. There are some blackout dates, however, including this big one for UK during the Summer Olympics: "Please note this promotion will not be available in selected hotels in the United Kingdom before 13th August 2012." Go online to book here.
*PEOPLE: As always, read the fine print before you book. Several flash sale sites require full payment at the time of booking and offer no refunds. Other sites have 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.
