Fabulous, dahling: British Airways is offering a deal to London. Book a flight, and you can get two free nights at 10 participating hotels. The package starts at $312 for New York City to London round-trip. Taxes add $143.
There's a required Saturday night stay, and a $30 surcharge each way for traveling Thursday through Sunday.
