I just came across a very interesting website which offers the discount and promo codes for hotels and car rentals. As an experiment, I entered the XML (Leisure Links Rate) code for a Saturday night stay in July at the NY Marriott Marquis.... the rate without the promo code was $259, with the promo code it was $233.
Likewise, NewHilton. The list provides great information for comparing what properties come up (or don't) for various discount codes. Thanks for the URL.
Last night, participants in the Insiders home page survey have crossed the 700 milestone. Consistenly, the % of travellers that extend a business trip for leisure hits 88%. That's huge and likely the basis for MEB. The number of hotels participating in MEB has dropped significantly.
Regrettably, the list has no match for the Global Rate Break code, F5X that yields a 20% discount on weekend stays, now expired. I'm so glad for the multiple reservations in place using that code.
