Most hotel promotions don’t work for me, whether it’s Orbitz, or IHG, or Hilton, and so on.
And then suddenly, I find myself torn having to decide between three great hotel deals for one night! It’s like having nothing to do for weeks, then getting invited to three great events all on the same night.
As I wrote about previously, I am going to India on Emirates Airlines (see, Trip Planning: India).
We will be in Delhi, India on our last night. Our flight out is at 10 a.m. Suddenly we find ourselves with these three reservations to choose between:
1) Hyatt Regency Delhi – we will already be there a day or two, using a suite upgrade. The price is more than double the price of the next two options, but still affordable , about $150 per night, with tax.
The other two choices are near the Indira Gandhi International Airport itself.
2) Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport – using the Orbitz $100 special. A few months ago, Orbitz ran a special whereby the first $100 of a hotel booking was free. Applying the special, this hotel is about $50 with all taxes and fees.
|1 guest $114.52 avg/night||$114.52|
|Promo code applied||-$100.00|
|Taxes and fees||$34.20|
|Total due at booking||$48.72|
3) Holiday Inn New Delhi International Airport – IHG Pointbreaks. 5,000 IHG points. I never, ever see a hotel that works for me, but the Holiday Inn Delhi Airport is on the list this month.
The choices are each bargains in their own right. Each of these hotels have good reviews.
I think the choice is narrowed to the Hyatt Regency and the Holiday Inn. I feel like I should choose the Holiday Inn just to say I caught a Pointbreaks and saved $150, but, you know I love Hyatt Hotels….
