Looking for a quick getaway to someplace warm? Here's a special deal for you sweet HotelChatter readers: The Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs is offering our readers a free upgrade at check-in and two complimentary glasses of champagne upon arrival.
The booking code to use online is CHAT. The deal will expire at the end of April and the upgrade is based upon availability.
We checked multiple rates for the weekends and they all seem to start at $279 a night for a basic Superior King room. The next room category is the Deluxe King room which has either a claw-foot bathtub or fireplace. Over the weekend of April 23, we did see a smaller room category open up, the Colony King, for $259 a night.
However, the weekend of Coachella, which is April 16-18, room rates jump to $499 a night for a Superior King.
We trot the globe searching out deals for our readers, but in this case, our reputation preceded us and the Hollywood Heights Hotel decided to share a deal with us specifically for you.
Here’s how it works: the first 20 HotelChatter readers to call in for a reservation from January 1-February 15 will get a room for $10. That’s not a typo, we said $10. All you have to do is call (323) 762-1049 and mention the code HH2010, then just pick your night.
You must stay at the hotel sometime in 2010, and once you make your reservation it can’t be changed, so take a page from old St. Nick, make a list and check it twice before you commit to a date.

Hyatt Hotels keep on coming fast and furious with their 24 Hour Sales. It was only a few weeks ago on Black Friday that Hyatt was discounting their hotels 30 percent but starting tomorrow, December 16, you can book Hyatt Hotels for even less at 40 percent off daily rates.
The offer is only good from December 16, 12:01am to 11:59pm local time but your stays can take place through May 31, 2010. The sale is also limited to the Hyatts in North America. (The full list is after the jump.)

(Code PROM158 for Palms Place upgrade.) Deal is good through December 29th. [Source: Travelzoo]
When we got our sneak peek of The Surrey Hotel on New York's Upper East Side, we were thrilled by the luxe elegance we found in the room, not to mention the swank neighborhood outside. But then we read a review from Globalista that wasn't quite what we hoped for. Even though the TripAdvisor reviews were generally positive, the seeds of doubt were planted.
Coupled with our disappointment about the hotel's introductory offer, chances were looking slim on taking a chance on The Surrey. Until now.
The Surrey has just sweetened the deal for HotelChatter Readers by offering a complimentary night when you reserve a minimum two-night stay.
San Francisco natives know that the closest thing the city gets to snow, sleet, or anything of the sort during the holidays is Union Square's perilously crowded ice rink. You can either hightail it out of town—to Lake Tahoe or Big Bear, for instance—for a taste of the real thing, or you can fake it with the "Snow Day" package being offered by the Galleria Park Hotel. Its perks are a far cry from being caught in a bonafide flurry, but when you're a coastal Californian or holiday visitor, faux is the best you can hope for.
The Galleria Park is located in Union Square, whose holiday decorations are really impressive, despite their kitsch: a fully tinsel and wreath-beckdecked MACY*S, a gigantic Christmas tree in the main plaza, and even more lights than usual. What the package offers in addition to being squarely in the middle of these surroundings are complimentary valet parking, which usually runs for $35 per night, two tickets and skate rental to said ice rink, and two cups of Valrhona (a.k.a. the way high-end version of Swiss Miss) hot chocolate upon returning to the hotel at midi.
We regularly cover Sin City happenings on our sister site VegasChatter, where the X-to-G-rated ratio often tips in favor of lascivious activities. This isn't to say that there aren't perfectly innocent things to do in Las Vegas—we reported on gelato last Friday, for Chrissakes—but finding them may take more work than wandering into any one of the Strip's neon-lighted strip joints.
Just in time for proverbial "list checking" season, The Signature at MGM Grand is offering a "Nice" alternative for those of a prim persuasion. Deviant travelers will have their requisite "Naughty" option, so fear not.
You know what goes even better with a heaping plate of Thanksgiving turkey than a side of mashed potatoes? Palm Beach. OK, so maybe you won’t feel like jumping straight into that bikini or Speedo after gorging on your holiday dinner, but we’re still going to say beach-combing in Palm Beach trumps cramming into your sister-in-law’s house in suburbia.
But here’s what would make us extra thankful: staying at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, with the third night free. And for those of you purists who think the only way a beach should be part of Thanksgiving is lounging around like a beached whale after chowing down on seconds and thirds, fret not, for the Four Seasons has arranged for some traditional Thanksgiving activities.
More hotel deals! The Terranea Resort, a luxury oceanfront property in Palos Verdes, just south of Los Angeles, is offering guests 50 percent off its room rates but only for 12 more days. From now through October 27, you can get rooms at the brand new hotel for $210 a night. The special rates are good for stays through December 17. It's even available for reservations over Thanksgiving.
The only caveat is that it does require advance purchase. And while we found opening rates at the hotel over the summer for less (about $145 a night), room rates have since jumped up to about $500 a night. We were able to find a room over Thanksgiving for $261 a night for a resort view king. Ocean views cost $316 a night.
The Terranea is a sprawling resort with tons of activities available during your stay such as hiking the resort's two mile trail, playing golf on a "challenging" 9-hole course, relaxing at the spa and just taking in the awesome Pacific ocean and Catalina Island views. There's even a children's center so you can drop the kids off and actually enjoy your vacation.
Manhattan is a hotbed of hotel openings right now so if a trip to New York is on your agenda this fall, there are plenty of new hotels to try out. But some of them might be a little out of your budget like The Crosby Street Hotel at $459 a night and Ink48 at $269 a night. So to get a deal, you might need to try a hotel that's not quite all the way open yet, like The Sanctuary Hotel.
This is a hotel that we've been waiting a long time to see (like since 2006). Located in Times Square, the hotel is still known as The Portland Square Hotel but the Impulsive Group is in the process of giving it a multi-million dollar facelift to transform it into The Sanctuary. As of now, only nine of the hotel's 122 rooms have been completed renovated and updated. But they look pretty cute, even if the rest of the hotel still needs some work.
Guestrooms feature plush beds with European linens as well as 32- to 42-inch plasma televisions and iPod docking stations. The bathrooms boast a unique open design featuring quarried marble as well as a glass enclosure with a rain showerhead surrounded by adjustable drapery to create an intimate bath experience. Several of the guestrooms also showcase the original structure of the hotel with exposed brick or metal beams adorning the ceiling.
The stunning, cliffside Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is turning 110 years old and to celebrate, the hotel is offering rates for--you guessed it--$110 a night. While the stays are good through December 22, you must book between October 12 to 31. The rate is also open based on availability. The hotel suggests you call in person at 1-888-403-9199 to book. Normally, rooms are about $170CAD a night.
So what do you get for $110 a night? Well, nothing really besides a room which is non-refundable and full pre-payment is required.
