Canada is on SALE and 3 for 2 promotions abound !

Time to come out of winter hibernation and get out into the sunshine!. It is a buyer’s market and the trend is towards getting a good deal when you walk into a hotel and ask for the $79 rate.
I’m giving you this tip but don’t want to
mention the name of the hotel that took me up on my bargaining because it is smart for the hotels to give front desk personnel the authority to take walk-ins instead of empty rooms. Previously, the cheapest rates were on their websites and one had to pay rack rate if you turn up at the hotel.
Spring is a good time to have a weekend getaway at Halifax Marriott in Canada on the harbor front and receive a $25 food credit and free parking! Choose from two fabulous onsite restaurants - 44 North Ocean Bistro for chef-crafted Maritime cuisine or the Fife & Drum Pub, featuring casual favorites and live Maritime entertainment on weekends! Or use your credit towards private in-room dining. Offer is valid until April 30 for weekend stays until May 30. (If you book,-quote promotion code P51.)
I often enjoy the hospitality at the downtown Calgary attached to the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre They have a great concierge lounge for elites. It is a bi-level lounge, serving complimentary breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres. Their eBreaks rate is CAD 111 this weekend.

The average price per room declined 25% in Canada, Western Canada led with highest number of transactions and room pricing discounts.

Many chains offer the,”pay for 2 and get one night free”,.You can even get a discount now if you use points,- Marriott are appeasing their MR members, after devaluing points, by offering the 3 for 2 nights discount in the points needed to redeem nights at a Marriott resort to 2008 levels:
. 3 for 2 Resort Redemption Cat. 4 Resorts = 40,000 points
• 3 for 2 Resort Redemption at Cat. 5 Resorts = 50,000 points
• 3 for 2 Resort Redemption at Cat. 6 Resorts = 60,000 points
• 3 for 2 Resort Redemption at Cat. 7 Resorts = 70,000 points

The 3 for 2 promotion people, must have known that my New Year’s resolution was to not travel for more than 2 nights, unless it is International business travel, because I don’t like to leave my cat for longer than 2 nights.

W Hotels have an offer at several hotels for a green Spring Fling. - Includes a donation of trees on your behalf, in-room breakfast for two, two spring cocktails with the room, .W Fort Lauderdale’s offer is to escape into intra-coastal cool. Your experience includes a VIP Living Room table, W beach towel, two lounge chairs and umbrella on the beach, Bliss® Hot Cream Manicure, a chef-guided kitchen tour with wine at Stephen Starr’s signature restaurant and a room upgrade The W Scottsdale, is also a place to visit before it gets too hot in the Summer. It's a new W, complete with the desert’s most dazzling infinity pool, Arizona’s first Bliss® Spa, Sushi Roku and more. The newly-renovated Hilton Anaheim's near Disneyland CA, is offering 89 of its rooms every day for $89 per night all this year.

The Ritz-Carlton has a Reconnect package, a two-night stay gives you up to a $100 credit that can be used for retail, spa or dining purchases in many hotels. Or use PointSaver points to get a reduced point rate at Ritz-Carltons.
I ‘m so glad that Marriott Rewards are putting the PointSaver offers out again. I had stopped trying to find them because they were so difficult to find. With PointSavers, it takes fewer Marriott Rewards points to get free stays at Marriott hotels worldwide.
Marriot Elites Get 15% Off Plus $100 Bonus Bucks in Canadian Cities -Valid through, March 29, 2009 Use Promotional Code: E0S when booking.
