In January made a hotel reservation in NYC at the springhill suites for a 3 night total of $754 on april 7-10 on the AAA rate. Being a platinum member I know to constantly check as the closer you get to your trip hotel prices drop. This morning saw a AAA hot deal for a total of $687 and just a few minutes ago scored a AAA hot deal of $668, a savings of $85! All for the same size / type room. So if you don't already know, please constantly check hotel prices as you get closer to your trip you can score better deals.
