    For anyone that travels much

    You should use the best rate guarantee from websites. I got three nights in a nice hotel in Washington DC for 200.00 because I found a rate on Expedia lower than the hotels own website. Just some advice. They give you the first night free and match the other sites rate for the rest of the stay.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Thanks for the heads up, and I'll check it out. I spontaneously booked a trip to Vegas next week for the hell of it - meah, I was bored

    It depends on the Hotel chain and website. Some give you first night free, others give you the rate plus 10 to 25 percent back.

    Fatwallet has a nice thread on it.

    I got the "wonderful"l Newport Travelodge for 2 nights, only had to pay for the second night.

    Depends on the time of year and the day you come in and check out. Free floating space during the week is the norm, a free night is just a way to get you in at a rate for the other 2 nights. Escpecially in Vegas, where they boost the weekend rates and want to get your money in their casino.

    The reason expedia has cheaper rates than the hotel is because they have bought a block of them, if they don't sell it they have to give it back to the hotel who then sells it.

    Expedia's goal is to maximize their block price by maxing up the weekend prices, or take the loss in the return. Thus giving away one night to insure the sale of 2 others.

    WOY has a pretty good explaination of how this stuff works.

    If you can find a lower price, most hotels sites will match it and give you some sort of bonus. Additional points is another bonus they may offer.
