Why Last Minute Hotel Deals?

Have you ever had to book a hotel at the last minute and wondered why you felt like you were getting a great deal? Sometimes this is not the case, but if you know what you are doing you can get a very hot deal on a hotel at the last minute. Here are a few tips to help you with your lat minute hotel deal.

 

The first thing you need to know about the hotel industry is that certain hotels cut their rates when they need to fill a few more rooms and others will not due to their reputation. The higher priced hotels seem to be content with leaving a few rooms empty on any given night instead of dropping their rates a bit in order to fill the rooms. Others are more than willing to cut their rates, sometimes as much as in half, in order to fill the vacant rooms. This only makes sense because they don't make money from empty rooms.

 

The next thing you need to know is that if there is a big event in the area, then you are going to have a lot of trouble finding a last minute hotel. Plus when there is a big even, for example a Notre Dame Football game in South Bend, Indiana, the hotels tend to raise their rates and as they book more rooms they will continue to raise their rates because they know their area is going to be flooded with thousands of people in need to a hotel room. They will milk this for every penny they can. So if there is a big event going on where you are traveling to don't expect to get any kind of deal.

 

 

So remember that if you are booking last minute you should shop around for the hotels that will drop their rates a little to fill the rooms they have vacant. Also know that if there is a larger and popular event in the area, then you will have a lot of trouble finding a hotel room and even more trouble finding a deal. Make sure to negotiate or at least ask for a better rate because some hotels will give you one if you ask. Like Accor , it offers last minutes hotels: up to 60% off!

Taipei 西門町 – 薆悅酒店 inhouse Hotel

比較過價錢、各樣設施、地方後,最後我們選了薆悅酒店 inhouse Hotel

位置在台北市萬華區西寧南路107號 107 Xining South Road Taipei City Taiwan (R.O.C.)
就在捷運
西門町站六號出口,經161誠品進入商圈,步行3﹣5分鐘便到了,地點是十分方便!
其開幕時間為2012年4月,所以各樣設施及房間都超新淨的!

上網看到評語說此酒店比一般酒店不同,大堂的燈飾感覺更trendy、年輕、挺暗的。有點像清吧,在lift內都是播著R﹠B的音樂,不是很吵耳那種,是relax有活力的感覺。
我們選了最basic的精緻房,房間比我相像中還要大,不是一推門就只有床那種XD

 
其仿木的wall也很新淨,房間沒有異味!
側邊的書桌、衣櫃都很有懷舊的氣色。
其設有iphone叉電兼喇叭也是我們每晚/每朝的指定動作~播著音樂上廁所…

 
對了!沒有廁所們是正常的吧?我卻很驚訝….還真的有點尷尬!
上廁所時真的會不好意思啦,有洗PP功能的廁所,但我們都沒有使用喔。

其中一個我私心選這所酒店的原因就是…
他們提供的是L'OCCITANE shower gel, shampoo以及 conditioner….!!
每天執房有四套當然用不完,我都把他們帶回香港了,下次去海灘可以用囉 :)

我們在訂酒店房時request了高層房,結果他們真的安排了最高的層數,真好!
這是我們從酒店看到的早上景色,晚上十點前盡是熱鬧的西田町商圈,四圍都擺著街頭小吃XD
我們有兩天都在深夜落樓下買東西吃啦,很方便!(其實是到便利店買杯麵…)
而且酒店對面有郵筒喔,方便每次去旅遊都會寄postcard的我。


價錢方面,我入住的日子是2013年5月1日至5月5日,不算旺季。
港幣3000左右四晚,包四天早餐自助餐,平均七百多元一晚我覺得價錢合理。
自助餐質素也很不錯,雖然款式不多,可我們還是吃了四天都未生厭喔XD

台灣的食物隨便街買到的都好味@@

又因為這四天自助餐,是我人生第一次食豬耳朵送粥,原來咁好味既!
房間及大堂設有免費無線上網,而且訊號超強的喔!在房間/大堂/餐廳都收得很好。
總結好滿意,最後沒有貪新鮮兩日換一次酒店是明智的選擇!

沙巴 – 香格里拉丹絨亞路渡假酒店

沙巴五星級香格里拉丹絨亞路酒店位於南中國海環抱的半島上,是一個美麗的熱帶花園。由天然林木、竹子特色建材構築而成的客房,盡顯沙巴特有的悠閒、隨意的 生活態度。選擇這間酒店是因爲這裡活動設施齊全,距離亞庇市中心和機場僅十分鐘車程,就算我們扶老攜幼也不會太麻煩。我們預訂了兩間三人房,就算加了床, 也沒有顯得很擠逼。酒店只提供嬰兒洗澡的浴盆,但未有提供網床,可能暑假旺季供不應求。

 

沒有嬰兒網床,房間内多了張梳化床

 

住在香港石屎森林内久了,很高興看到那麼多綠色樹木!

 

酒店園林景

 

充滿熱帶風情的渡假勝地

 

這個infinity pool景觀一流!海天一色,絕美呢!

 

酒店内有多個泳池,我們也很享受在這裏暢泳和嬉水!

 

 

酒店的私人沙灘不是游泳的好地方,卻是欣賞日落的最佳地點。每天黃昏六時海灘上滿是欣賞日落的客人。

 

 

在飛機上也可以看到我們的酒店!
