Museums and galleries, trendy food, offbeat boutiques -- the big cities have it all. From sun-soaked locales like Vegas and San Diego to chic Northern cities like Boston and Minneapolis, these urban enclaves are getting very affordable with these Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals in the U.S.
Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas
While it’s not tough to score a cheap room in Sin City, you’re never going to find rooms that go lower than $35 per night. That's what this property is offering for Cyber Monday -- with daily breakfast for two and two passes to Ghostbar -- for trips between this December 1 and June 30, 2016. To scoop up the savings, book between November 30 and December 4 using promo code CYBER15. when booking.
Hotel Commonwealth, Boston
This is a fun promotion at a hotel that doesn't often offer discounts, all tied to the number 96. At the 96-room property, rates will drop to $96 for a 96-minute period on Cyber Monday, between 11:30 a.m. and 1:06 p.m. EST. The promotion is good for December 15 through March 19, 2016 and represents a 60 percent savings. Book online using promo code 96new or by calling 866-784-4000.
Hard Rock Hotel San Diego
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal at this property in the Gaslamp Quarter is already memorable, with rates starting at $99 per night. But there's another enticing add-on: Five people who book between November 27 and 30 will be randomly selected to get a free upgrade to a Rock Star Suite. Use promo code BF2015.
W Minneapolis—The Foshay
Bunking in a W property for under $100 per night seems too good to be true, and yet that’s what W Minneapolis—The Foshay is offering through its Cyber Monday sale. Land a half-off rate, as low as $89, for travel until September 6, 2016 by booking online on November 30.
Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis
Rates are slashed in half to as low as $89 through this luxury property’s Cyber Monday sale. The promotion is good for travel through September 6, 2016 and must be booked on November 30. Bonus: A partnership with the Walker Art Museum means guests get in free with their room key cards.
The Garland, North Hollywood, California
This hotel is fresh off a $20 million restoration that mimics 1970s-cool California, and it's offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal that can be booked between November 27 and 30 -- good for trips during December 2015 and January 2016. Rates during this time are normally $219-$231 per night (meaning you'll save as much during a two-night stay).
Radisson Blu Hotels
Radisson Blu properties in Minneapolis (plus the nearby Mall of America), Philadelphia, and Chicago are all participating in Cyber Monday with a 40 percent discount for two-night stays between this November 30 and March 31, 2016. Rates vary depending on location and season, but for a sense of price range, we found $245 rooms on a weekend in March at Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel, Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Book using promo code BLU2015.
Preferred Hotels & Resorts
Looking for luxe hotels for less? Members of Preferred Hotels & Resort's free-to-join iPrefer program will get up to 30 percent off when they book three nights or more -- plus 2,500 bonus points, which can redeem a $50 reward certificate -- at participating hotels like SLS South Beach in Miami, XV Beacon in Boston, and Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows in Hawaii (and other properties abroad). This Cyber Monday promotion has already kicked off and will run through November 30, good for stays through March 31, 2016.
Morgans Hotel Group

On November 30, travelers can nab rooms at up to 41 percent off. Travel dates vary from property to property, but most fall between this December and February 2016.
