I currently have a reservation for the Comfort Suites in Ft. Lauderdale, prior to our Oct 5 cruise. I got an $80 military rate. This includes free continental breakfast, free transportation from airport & to port. I've seen some not-so-kind reviews for this hotel, though.
I'd love to stay at the Embassy Suites - I think it would really start the vacation off right! Best rate I've seen is $161.99. I've stayed at an ES in DC and Orlando and loved it.
Does anyone know of any better rates / codes to get a better rate?
Check out http://www.retailmenot.com/coupons/travel. You just have to look thru the different discounts it has. I found discount codes for Red Roof Inn and Hertz that I used and saved 20% on my room and 10% on my rental car. Cant beat that!
