The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off on June 12 and while the extreme football fans will head to Brazil to watch the matches, the majority of fans will settle for catching a couple of games in their local pub or bar. (That's what we plan on doing.) But these Miami-area hotels want you to watch the matches with them instead. Miami--it's kinda like Brazil!
The new b2 miami downtown has put together a b2 is for Brazil! package that gives 25 percent off the best available rate, 15 percent off food and drinks at Biscayne Tavern, the hotel's gastropub concept from Jeffrey Chodorow of China Grill Management; two signature cocktails at the tavern and a World Cup special edition souvenir. The package is available to book online from June 1 to June 15 with rates starting at just $99 a night. (Gotta love Miami in the off season.) Use promo code Brazil to book.
In Miami Beach proper, The W South Beach is offering a Timeout Getaway which includes a two-night stay; an in-room “Create-Your-Own Caipirinha Kit” amenity; special Brazilian themed dishes at the W's The Dutch restaurant; two signature cocktails daily, inspired by the countries of the competing teams in The World Cup and the ability to watch World Cup games from the guest rooms, the Living room and in select poolside private cabanas (those cost extra.) The packages starts at $489 a night and is available from June 12-July 13. Call 1.877.822.0000 to book but you must have seven days advance notice.
Further north in Ft. Lauderdale, the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa has created the "Kick It, Kick Back and Relax” deal that gives guests 20 percent off lowest available rates if you book three nights or more. The hotel will be showing the games on a flat-screen TV at their beachfront bar. Rates start at $207 a night, based on double occupancy. Book by June 5 for travel from June 2 to July 31. Go here to book and use promo code ADR.
Cyber Monday is a long ways off but Cyber Man-day is just around the corner!
Canyon Ranch Hotels are going after the spa-going dads for Father's Day with a new online special that kicks off on June 2. They're calling it Cyber Man-day. Hey, it's better than man-cation.
From June 2-15, if you buy a Canyon Ranch gift card online, you'll get a $50 bonus voucher for every $500. Yes, the gift cards are good for overnight stays too. And if you book exactly on June 2, you'll receive an additional service voucher for one spa, sports or integrative wellness service valued at $145.
The deal is in place at the Canyon Ranch resorts in Tucson, Miami Beach, Las Vegas, and Lenox, Mass. While the gift cards do not expire, the vouchers are good through June 30, 2015. Even better, this deal doesn't just apply to men, women can get the bonuses too! Ahhhh-mazing.

Restaurant Week, Broadway Week et al are now all old hat. Courtesy of Starwood Hotels, we now have a new sweet promotion to spend our money on: Suite Week.
From now through April 29th, you can book a future stay (through March 31st, 2015) in a suite at any Starwood property in the New York City area for 30 percent off best available rate. Just book as normal through the hotels' websites.
Each hotel will also be creating its own package that comes with early check-in, late check-out, complimentary WiFi, complimentary parking and then three unique amenities that are specific to each hotel. Here's the rundown:
The dreaded APRIL 15 is here. Yes, it's time to break out your checkbooks and pay the tax man.
But according to these hotels, it's also time to break out your credit card and book a discounted hotel stay in honor of Tax Day. See? We're so good at
spending money accentuating the positive! Here are 5 hotels with discounted rates to book in the next few days along with two hotels offering stress-relief from tax filings.
And if you're looking for suggestions on where to spend your tax refund (fingers crossed!), look no further than these Hotels With Killer Views.
Whatever your intentions, things inevitably get messy on St. Patrick's Day. If you are making a trip to NYC for the parade, green beer and other Shamrock-related festivities, don't try to stumble back home, check-out the last-minute deals at these hotel booking sites instead.
HotelTonight HotelTonight's High-Roller Suite comes from the City Club Hotel where $439 will score you a Grand Duplex Suite with a private terrace and downstairs living and dining area connected to the marble bathroom and sleeping quarters via a spiral staircase. HotelTonight also has the Sixty Soho (formerly 60 Thompson) for $159 and The Roger for the same price.
From February 16 - 23, several Boston hotels are offering major discounts on their rooms, averaging about 25-30 percent off, making it a good deal for those willing to brave the cold in Beantown or for Bostonians who want to escape their own digs. Conveniently, the hotel week happens the same time as the school vacation week.
A list of the participating hotels can be found on Facebook including several of the city's top luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton (25 percent off bed and breakfast page for a deluxe suite); The Four Seasons (25 percent off their best available rate); The Liberty Hotel (30 percent off of the best available rate and overnight valet parking) and the W Boston (30 percent discount off of the best available rate and in-room wifi.) Another deal we like is at The Charles Hotel where rooms cost $199 a night and include ice skating passes at the hotel's rink, free parking and daily breakfast.
During hotel week, guests can also get in on some other deals around Boston, including a two-for-one offer from the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston and the Franklin Park Zoo, and 20% off tickets to Jose Mateo Ballet Company’s winter show, "Unbridled." Now, how do you like them apples?

Last month, we published a list of early-season ski deals to help you save some cash when taking a trip this winter. As you might have noticed, although many of the deals we featured hooked you up with free lift tickets (which is a huge help), a lot of them were closer to "promotions" than "deals."
For example, the $530 per person, per night girls' getaway at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek may provide good value given all you get, but it is far from a "deal," an offer meant to allow those who normally couldn't financially partake to participate.
In other words, $530 a night is still a lot of money. And there were other promotions that were in the same boat, such as the offer from Hyatt Mountain Collection that if you book a three-night stay at all three properties in the collection, you will receive a complimentary EPIC ski pass for the 2014/2015 winter.

Just the other week, we were in Miami looking for a seriously last-minute hotel deal. We're talking 2pm the day of. Our usual go-to site for last-minute bookings, HotelTonight, didn't really have any good options. See, we like deals but we also like cool hotels so finding that perfect combination of affordable-ish and hip can sometimes be difficult.
So we turned to the giant search engine that is Expedia and found a room at Kimpton's Surfcomber Hotel on Collins Avenue for $239 a night. Not bad but we had to cross-check that with what the Surfcomber's own site was showing. And to our surprise, we stumbled upon Kimpton's Last Minute Deals.
If you thought the cray cray deal-hunting was over when Cyber Monday ended, think again. Aside from a couple hotels in our Ultimate Guide extending their offers for a few more days, Howard Johnson is once again hosting Orange Wednesday on December 4th giving guests 50 percent off room rates for an up to three-night stay.
You can check out the participating HoJos in the U.S. and Canada on the website now but you do have to book between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM EST on December 4th. And you can't book through the website. You have to call the hotel directly and request to book the Orange Wednesday rate. The deal is also limited to the first three travelers to call for each hotel so time really is of the essence on Orange Wednesday.
Here's some more fine print: Stays must be completed in the first three months of the reservation being made. Each guest can only book one reservation for up to three consecutive nights at the 50 percent off discount during the promotion period. Blackout dates apply.
If you're reading this and Orange Wednesday has already passed you by, Howard Johnson is still offering 20 percent off the room rates when guests book three consecutive nights from now until December 31st. Orange Wednesday may not be the new Cyber Monday but it's still pretty nice.
