Check all travel websites (travelocity, expedia, priceline, hotwire, etc.) before booking directly on Hotel websites. Better prices are available, especially midweek rates. Some restrictions may apply so read thoroughly. To my surprise the restrictions are the often the same on the Hotel website as the travel websites, but the travel websites are less expensive than the "Official Hotel Website". Remember, always call the 1-800 number and talk to an agent. Take the extra step and call the Hotel directly for a price quote. I am going to Dallas TX in May and I have found up to $140 price difference on the same room. SHOP AND SAVE!
