Don’t Count Out Club Floors
While staying on a hotel club floor may seem expensive, it could actually save you some money. Club floors give guests extra perks, such as snacks, light dinners and cocktail hour. So calculate the cost of the room upgrade against the added perks. “Here’s what you get when you pay $100 to upgrade to a Gold-floor room at Boston’s Fairmont Copley Plaza: Breakfast for two: $52; Evening appetizers: $20; Evening dessert: $20; In-person wake-up call with juice, coffee, or tea: $30; Large bottled water: $7; Soft drinks and snacks from the lounge: $10; Welcome drink: $10; Wi-Fi: $15. The total amounts to $164, meaning those who pay to upgrade save $64,” reports CNN.
