For those looking to get out of town for the long weekend, it’s not too late to get a good deal on flights and hotels. Here’s our roundup of some of the deals we’ve seen around the Web this week.
What better way to spend Labor Day than blowing your hard-earned dollars in the city of lost wages? Hotels.com has rooms at the three-star Palace Station Hotel and Casino starting at $21 a night. You’re going to lose enough money at the Blackjack table, so you might as well save a little on your room, right?
The Big Apple is a top destination for Labor Day travelers, and there are still travel deals available for last-minute bookers. SmarterTravel.com points to Southwest’s Labor Day sale, which includes a $242 round-trip flight from Chicago to New York. Book by Thursday!
With the East Coast looking a bit rainy this weekend as Hurricane Earl blows by, perhaps the West Coast will strike your fancy. BestTravelDeals.net has the centrally located Courtyard San Francisco at $139 a night for reservations over the Labor Day Weekend.
Expedia.com has extended its summer sale through the holiday weekend, offering up to 40% off for travelers. Hawaii is a prime destination, with hotels starting at $82 a night. One caveat: You must book by the end of day today (Aug. 31).
SmarterTravel.com spotlights American Airlines’ Labor Day weekend sales, including a Denver to Los Angeles round-trip flight for $136. As always, though, check the fine print. The fares are only available for travel on Saturday, Sunday and next Wednesday, so those looking for a Friday through Monday weekend getaway won’t receive the special price. And don’t forget about American’s checked baggage fees.
