· $83 April Fool's Rate at Sheraton New Orleans: No kidding, the Sheraton New Orleans is dropping its pants, er, rates to $83 a night on April 1. For real! Why the $83 rate? That's because the hotel first opened to guests on April 1, 1983. Now the Canal Street hotel is sporting a grand new look thanks to a recently completed a $50 million renovation. To get your $83 room rate, call 1-888-627-7033 and mention promotion code NOFOOL. Regular rooms start at $129. Oh and if you somehow saved your receipt from your stay at the hotel in April 1983, you will get a three-day stay at the $83 rate. You must show your historic receipt upon check-in to redeem the offer.
· Soft Opening Discount at New Caribbean Resort: Las Verandas Hotel and Villas on the Western Caribbean island of Roatán (off the coast of Honduras) just opened on March 1 with 60 luxury rooms, 32 free-standing villas and a 6,000-sq.ft. spa. The resort will fully open in July but from now through May 31st, you can score a 30 percent discount. Rates for golf course rooms start at $295 a night before discounts. Ocean view rooms are $325 a night, also before discounts. So when you call 1-855-224-6620 to book, ask for the soft opening rate to get the 30 percent off.
30% off all rack rates for stays during March 1 to May 31, 2013.
LEGOLAND HOTEL'S KID-FRIENDLY DEAL: The first ever U.S. Legoland Hotel will open on April 5 and they've got a great deal for kids. Naturally. The Kids Stay and Play Free package includes one free child Hopper ticket with the purchase of a full-price paid adult Hopper ticket and one free child breakfast with the purchase of one adult breakfast. The kids hopper ticket alone is $87 and includes entrance to LEGOLAND® California, SEA LIFE® Aquarium and LEGOLAND® Water Park. An adult hopper ticket costs $97. The package is available from April 8 to June 20. We found rates for Sunday in April at $209 a night. Friday and Saturday was just $50 more.
However, you must book this package before March 31stand it can't be combined wiht any other offers, discounts or promotions. Plus, there's a $22 resort fee. But that includes WiFi, parking, children's evening entertainment, a welcome treasure gift and all in-room refreshments. Don't need the package? Regular rates start at $199 a night. Just FYI: The hotel is sold out the first week of opening.
*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.
