We know you're looking to shave a few dollars off the cost of your next trip, and, believe it or not, New York City and Washington, D.C. might just be the places to do it. With January traditionally seen as the slowest time of year for NYC hotels, more than a few deals have been known to pop up – that is, as long as you're looking in the right place.
Affinia's "Perfect Rate Sale" is the latest offer to come across our desk. The limited-time flash sale, which starts tomorrow and ends Friday, features six Affinia properties in New York and D.C. with rates starting at $109 per night. The sale is valid for any stay through March 31, 2014, and has the potential to save you more than 50 percent off normal rates.
Participating hotels include the newly-renovated Affinia 50, named for its central midtown location on 50th Street and Lexington Avenue (right around the corner from Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and Grand Central Station), and home to a brand new lobby grab-and-go market, The Cupboard.
Meanwhile, in D.C., the Liaison Capitol Hill, as its name suggests, is the closest hotel to the Capitol. It's also within walking distance of the Smithsonian, National Mall, and Union Station. Each of the 343 rooms are decked out in cool grays and blues, and downstairs is the popular Art & Soul restaurant, run by Oprah Winfrey's former personal chef.
To take advantage of the sale, simply use the code JAN3DY when booking on the hotel's main website (the six participating hotels include the Affinia 50; Affinia Dumont; Affinia Gardens; Affinia Manhattan; Affinia Shelburne, and the Liaison Capitol Hill). Just make sure to do so soon, before the sale ends on Friday!
