We've got some piping hot deals in our inbox today. Here's three we think you might like!
Galleria Park Turns 100
Turning 100 years old has got to be hard...unless you're a hotel. Then it's easy, all you have to do is offer up special birthday rates.
Galleria Park Hotel in San Francisco is celebrating their milestone birthday by offering guests rates based on the year they were born.
The birthday rate is only good for folks who book at least two nights in the hotel but if you were born in 1978, then the rate on the last night of your stay is just $19.78!
Rates at the hotel typically start at $129 a night and the special centennial rate is based on availability. You also have to book your room by calling the hotel directly as the special rate is not available online. So put 1.800.792.9639 in your speed-dial now.
The beachfront resort, a favorite of reggae singer Sean Paul, will join the company's stable of hotels in Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Wyoming and St. Lucia. It will be official January 1.
The 398-room hotel is best known for its sweet location on two miles of white-sand beaches. It also has a spa, golf course, 13 tennis course and a whopping 54 pools.
As you might expect for a hotel in the non-beach part of town, one that hasn't had its big coming-out party yet, there hasn't been a lot of reviews yet. There are just three over at TripAdvisor, although two of them are positively glowing.

RockResorts, who have resorts Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and St. Lucia, have just announced a Loyalty Program as a way to celebrate the opening of three new hotels in 2010. But it's not quite a traditional loyalty program where guests earn points depending on how many nights they stay. It's really only a one-time offer.
Called Slopes to Seas, the promotion gives guests staying at a RockResort property after November 20, a 20 percent discount off future RockResort stays in 2010 as well as some other discounts during the second visit. Such discounts include a free upgrade based on availability, 15 percent off hotel dining, 15 percent off a RockResorts spa service and a Welcome Back amenity.
RockResorts will be opening in One Ski Hill Place Breckenridge; The Tempo Miami in Miami and the Balcones Del Atlantico in the Dominican Republic. Additionally, resorts are on tap for Turks and Caicos, The Bahamas and Stowe, Vermont in the coming years. To plan your stay, go to www.RockResorts.com for details on the RockResort locations.

When it comes to riding the rapids, we prefer to avoid sharp objects like rocks. But in the case of The Lodge at Vail, A RockResort, their "Rock the Rapids" package is encouraging the right kind of gouging. Prices, not rubber rafts! Families can save up to 30 percent on their white water adventures.
The "Rock the Rapids" package is available April 20 through September 27, 2009. Prices start at $199 per night for two nights accommodation and include a half-day rafting trip and lunch. Adventure seekers also get a Vail picture frame to nicely capture the experience forever.
And those not feeling the outdoors can zone out inside with the Complimentary Spa Credit package to use at the RockResorts Spa. A two night stay for $555 gives guests $555 worth of spa credit to do a little unwinding while the rest of the family battles rapids.

Two things we love — free stuff and pampering — have been united in beautiful matrimony at Jackson Hole’s Snake River Lodge & Spa, A RockResort. The luxury spa resort has unveiled a “Spa for Free” package that offers a $999 credit for the 17,000-square-foot Avanyu Spa and three nights accommodations for two people in a Lodge room.
The special is available May 1-22, making it perfect timing for what would be a seriously spectacular Mother’s Day gift. We’re pretty sure Mom would forget all about that time you broke her crystal bowl into a million pieces after spending a weekend indulging in Avanyu’s signature treatments (think Champagne Mud Wraps, High Altitude Repair facials and River Rock massages).
But, alas, all marriages have their hang-ups, and this one’s no different. (Sorry folks, there’s no such thing as a free spa day.) Expect to pony up at least $999 for three-nights lodging. All things considered, that’s really not bad — but be warned that $999 is just the starting rate.
Looks like RockResorts' newest property, Tempo Miami, is majorly delayed. And, um, for those not familiar with our Friday afternoon strokes of genius throwing back to our high school band geek days, we shall clarify: a ritardando means, like, a gradual slowdown of tempo in music. Get it? Tempo? Slowdown? Delay?
The property was originally scheduled to open on April 15th (and back in September, the confident folks at RockResorts were encouraging people to book their stays for April) but the new opening date is listed on the website as "September 2009" and rezzies are being taken for the whole month.
Rooms are going to be starting around $300 when the 56-guestroom property finally does open, and guests dishing out those kinds of dollas will be able to enjoy the 8,000-square-foot spa, lagoon-style sunset swimming pool, and its killer location across from Miami's new performing arts center and adjacent to the Miami Heat's sports arena.

It may be starting to feel a bit like Spring where you are, but the official end to the 08-09 ski season doesn't officially happen until mid-April at most resorts (the skiing keeps going until April 19th in Vail, for example). And right now ain't a bad time to kick it slopeside since your fave winter resort is probably getting sunnier, warmer and much, much cheaper.
Yesterday, RockResorts launched a 96-hour sale which goes until Sunday, March 22 offering up rates from $96 at ten RockResort properties worldwide. Notable 96-ers: Hotel Jerome in Aspen, The Osprey at Beaver Creek, The Lodge at Vail and Snake River Lodge in Jackson, WY. Also, The Arrabelle at Vail Square is on sale starting at $136 per night and, if beachy warmth is more your scene right now, The Landings St. Lucia is going from $166 per night.
Would you hate us if we said we're kind of loving this recession? It's just that the lengths hotels are going to to get you to stay with them just keep getting better and better. To wit:
Through April 15, guests booking a minimum two-night stay at any RockResort, or Vail Resorts Hospitality location, get an additional night of accommodations for free, plus a free bottle of Bonterra wine and a $50 RockResorts gift card that can be used at the hotel spas, various restaurants, gift shops or ski and snowboard rentals.
Sadly free doesn't last forever, so you've got to book by February 28 to secure this deal.

There’s a lot that sucks about staying at a resort that opens in phases: construction noise, the smell of paint, not being able to indulge in the spa. But there is one distinct advantage to staying at an in-limbo property: deep discounts.
The Landings St. Lucia, A RockResort, currently is one of those hotels, unveiling the second of its four-phase construction this December. Then, the hotel will debut another restaurant, two tennis courts and two pools, as well as an additional 60 one-, two- and three-bedroom villa suites, featuring kitchens, balconies and some with heated, jetted plunge pools.
Which all sounds too lovely to be able to afford!
Which is why you should take advantage of the hotel’s discounts before the whole thing is complete and The Landings starts asking full price. Check out for instance, the Fourth Night Free promotion, which also includes a $100 resort credit, or the Endless Summer Special that gives 32 percent off.
So as long as you don’t mind construction noise and the smell of paint, sounds like you’ve got a nice inexpensive vacation planned.
Though RockResorts is known best for its fun-loving properties perched on snowy peaks in Colorado, the hotel chain's "first urban venture" is scheduled to open April 15, 2009, in white-hot Miami.
We know, a new hotel name, you can hardly contain your anticipation. Presumably, the modern moniker is intended to reflect Miami's pulsing beat and legendary sexy flava. After all, the 67-floor Tempo Miami will feature seriously swanky (read: $450 a night) digs, with 56 boutique guest rooms and 305 residences, as well as a restaurant called Amuse with a self-forecasted "ultra-stylish atmosphere, chi-chi clientele, and exceptional global fusion menu."
With all the ink over green hotels and LEED-certified buildings, it's kinda refreshing to see a hotel chain implement green food. Not with food coloring, but with an approach to cuisine that is local, sustainable, and trans-fat free.
The RockResorts chain has just rolled out its Appetite for Life program -- which translates to exclusively offering Coleman natural products (all free-range, organic, natural meats and poultry), Horizon Organic Dairy products, sustainable seafood and fish, and fairtrade coffee (including organic Starbucks Serena coffee).
And no trans fats! Anti-trans-fats Mayor Mike Bloomberg of New York City would be so proud.
