The world's largest hotel chain is having a limited sale this week. Its Countdown to Spring Savings promotion means that some properties are on sale for a limited time each day. The sales start at noon and go until 4 p.m. EST.
Today's theme is Spring Break: We found the Best Western Yacht Harbor Hotel in San Diego for $89 per room per night in mid-March—rooms are normally about $139 per room per night. We also found Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C., for $50 per room per night—rates here, found via Tripadvisor, are typically $63 to $90. All prices are before tax.
Tomorrow's sale features "walkable cities," and Thursday's deals will be for sports fans. You can book for travel through 2009, but you must pay up front to lock in the sale rate.
