Hotel Week to Hit Boston on February 16th

January 15, 2014 at 11:27 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sad that New York Hotel Week is over? Don't be too sad! Hotel Week Boston is coming up!

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?

Uh-oh. Snowpacalypse is happening again for the East Coast. Weather reports are predicting up to 18 inches of snow and freezing temperatures. Already, 2,000 flights have been cancelled at Boston's Logan Airport and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has already declared a State of Emergency. Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has closed three major New York highways from midnight tonight until 5am Friday morning.

But there is a silver lining here. Hotel discounts! In Boston, The Charles Hotel in Cambridge has a special rate for travelers of $159/night. Go here to book. In NYC, Hotel Belleclaire is offering rates of $129. Go here to book.

Coincidentally in NYC, Hotel Week begins tomorrow and runs through January 12th, giving guests seriously low rates at hip hotels. Here are few we like:

The Ace Hotel: $200 a night
The Jade Hotel: $200 a night
Gem Hotel Soho: $100 a night
Affinia Manhattan: $100 a night

UPDATE 1.3.14: A few more hotels have offered up special rates this week.

Hotel BPM in Brooklyn now has rates for just $89 (usually $169.) Go here to book.

Hotel Pennsylvania across from Penn Station has special rates for stranded travelers starting at $90 along with free WiFi. Go here to book.
