The Starwood Hotel chain has a money-saving promotion called “Pay Your Birth Year.” The older you are, the more you save! Young people, share this with your parents and grandparents!
You pay the going rate for the first night and on the second night and in some cases, the third night too, you only pay the rate of the year that you were born.
Here is how this would work for me in the Los Angeles area:
Stay at the Westin LA Airport and pay $199 the first night and I would pay $57 for nights 2 and 3.
Stay at the Four Points Westin in Los Angeles and pay $179 the first night and I would pay $57 for nights 2 and 3.
So now you know, I was born in 1957. See how this works? If you were born in the 40’s or 30’s, woo hoo! For a 3 night stay in a $200 a night hotel, my daily cost would average $100 a night.
There are some pretty nice hotel chains to choose from:
The Starwood hotel chain includes Sheraton, Westin, W Hotels, Meridian, Four Points,St. Regis, and Element hotels with locations in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, and the Netherland Antilles.
