Swanky hotel group Leading Hotels of the World is having a fire sale on some of its room rates in honor of its 80th anniversary. For 80 minutes only starting at 8 a.m. (ET) on Oct. 1, the group will release "a limited number" of rooms at the rate of $19.28 per night (for its founding in 1928; get it?) for travel between Nov. 1 and Dec. 15, 2008. Pre-registration through its website is required. (Two-night maximum stay.) When we just checked, the website was overwhelmed with requests, so you may have to try refreshing the screen a couple of times.
If you get one of these deals, let us know!!
