11 Websites That Let You Book Luxury Hotel Rooms for Cheap

Posted: August 11, 2017 at 5:13 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

These days, it’s easier than ever to travel for less. With a click or tap of a button, you can find incredible vacation packages on sites like KAYAK or score cheap flights on apps like Hopper.

It’s usually a bit harder, however, to find deep discounts on luxury hotel rooms — even for seasoned travelers.

Luckily, INSIDER rounded up 11 websites that’ll help you do just that. Through exclusive deals, flash sales, and more, these sites let you book five-star hotel rooms for an affordable price.

1. Jetsetter

Jetsetter lets you shop crazy flash sales for some of the most luxurious hotels around the world.

Jetsetter has dominated the discount luxury vacation industry since it launched in 2009. Now a subsidiary of TripAdvisor, the site is known for its exclusive flash sales on top-rated hotels around the world.

To join Jetsetter’s community, all you need to do is provide your email address. Yes, that’s right — membership is completely free. From there, you’ll be able to access discounts of up to 25% at any of the luxury hotels in Jetsetter’s carefully curated collection.

You’ll also see flash sales, which last between five and 10 days, for up to 40% off the usual booking price.

2. Suiteness

Suiteness offers discounts on luxury hotel suites — many of which you won’t find anywhere else.

Suiteness specializes in luxury suites that accommodate four or more guests at lavish hotels such as the Four Seasons. Although many of the site’s listings are at full price, members get access to private discounts of up to 40%.

It’s the perfect way to book a room for a special occasion or trip — say, a bachelorette party — and split the cost among friends or family.

You can sign up for a free membership online using your email or Facebook account. So far, Suiteness’ service is limited to the following cities: Chicago, Hawaii, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, and San Francisco.
