We will be going to Tuscon to visit friends in coming weeks and as I was looking for Marriott properties I came upon this crazy $10 rate per night at the Tucson Airport Hotels | Suites in Tucson AZ | TownePlace Suites Tucson Airport Hotel.
|Summary of Room Charges||Cost per night per room (USD)|
|Friday, July 3, 2015 - Sunday, July 5, 2015 (2 nights , Regular rate )||10.00|
|Estimated government taxes and fees||3.20|
|Total for stay (per room)||26.41|
I immediately booked the room, but I'm curious if any other Insiders have come across anything such as this and if so was the rate honored at the hotel or brushed off like the United Airlines fare was a few months ago?
Ho, ho, ho!
Santas delivering presents in the form of $10 studio suites at Townplace Tucson throughout June, July, Aug and September. Your $10 gets you a studio suite but if you want a one bed suite it'll be $80+, so just the basic room at $10 a pop!
Great spot IAHFLYR. I think it'll be pulled soon but unlike the airlines, Marriott will probably honour it.
The tax rate is not 32%, the room rate reported was $10 per night and the tax per night was $1.60 which equals to 16%. And the reservation was for two/2 nights.
1st night room rate $10.00
1st room tax $ 1.60
2nd night room rate $10.00
2nd room tax $ 1.60
I think you missed the fact the reservation is for TWO nights.
Seems a bit odd. Since this is at the airport I would think it would primarily be used by someone stuck with a long layover. And they'd be happy to take just a studio for the night.
Maybe they're having problems with vacancies and just trying to get people who visit there regularly to try it once hoping they'll like it.
That's fantastic. A $10 room at a TS even if you don't particularly like the room/dated/beat up is a steal. There are fleabag motels all over the country that charge $50+/night that I would rather sleep in my car than risk staying in one. So enjoy!
I haven't scored any crazy hotel deals/glitches yet but nothing beats my Delta FC tickets to Hawaii for my wife and I that I scored during their glitch. $238 total for two people to fly JFK-LAX-HNL? Yes please! The JFK-LAX legs were in lie flat BusinessElite seats and it was really awesome. Ever since then I seriously consider Delta when flying. AA is my preferred but DL is now my second go to airline instead of UA.
