One of our first thoughts when looking at our next trip, how to get cheap tickets and how to get cheap hotel / motel rates?
Well, may not be the first thought, in fact the very first thought could go to the business meeting we are going to take part to with an important customer or it could go to the great beaches we will find just in front of our hotel resort.
But as anybody else we do not want to spend more than it is required, right? So let’s talk about cheap and discount rates we can find for hotels and motels – that’s because I am good at this subject.
There are a number of places we would look for cheap rates, anyone has his own preferred places but let’s do not forget about the major ones as expedia.com, deskbell.com, travelocity.com, booking.com, orbitz.com. I always start from one of them to find cheap hotel rates.
Where do we go? Houston! Largest City of Texas and a major one in the United States. Students will travel there for the many universities and colleges such as the University of Houston, the University of Texas-Houston Health and Science Center, Texas Southern University and Rice University. Some will travel for business and most likely having to do with one of the major industries there: Oil and Natural Gas or the space and aeronautics industry.
Let’s assume we are looking for the best price for a cheap hotel in Houston and do not have flexible dates, we will be there for a 2 day business trip!
Assuming a check in date 22 December and a check out date 24 December we go through the results to find a few offers as:
– Book now and save 30%! at Lancaster Hotel a 4 star in Texas Avenue
– Weekend and holiday rates at Four Seasons Houston, a five star downtown Houston
– Book now and save 20% at Hilton Americas Houston, a four star downtown Houston.
This is just a sample of the many hotel deals found for this short stay but try to change the dates or to make a longer stay and the rates will undoubtely be better and lower.
