Hello friends! Every time a new hotel promotion is announced I find myself asking the same basic question: “What is the cheapest Hilton/Hyatt/SPG/etc hotel in the world, or “What is the cheapest hotel available on Expedia/RocketMiles/Kaligo/AAvacations?” After solving this for myself I realized sharing my findings would save the wider travel deal community similar time and aggravation. Voila! Here is my basic and to the point website.
If you are new to the scene here are a couple ways this information can be useful:
Min. Nights Coupons/Package Deals
[Orbitz, Expedia, AAvacations] often offer discount codes with a fixed $ amount off either a multi-day standalone hotel or flight+hotel. For example AAvacations recently offered $150 off USA-Mexico/Caribbean roundtrip flight+hotel of at least 4 nights. Since you know they list hotels as cheap as $12/night your able to get a flight at $100 off and stay elsewhere.
You are working to achieve Royal Ambassador status with IHG and need eight additional nights. Seeing where $20/night properties are located you can structure your next international trip through into and out of Jakarta to fold a check-in/check-out.
The easiest, most common use is to earn rewards points when a chain offers a special promotion or offer code. IHG offers 5k bonus points for your “next stay” which is stackable with an ongoing 3k point offer/promotion. Valuing their points at .006/point you can effectively stay for free at any sub $50/hotel or buy points on the cheap at lower priced locations+you are getting stay credit for free towards higher status.
Fixed Point Schemes
Sites such as Rocketmiles offer fixed amounts of Airline miles for hotel bookings. First time users can often receive 5,000+ bonus miles. Knowing where the cheapest hotels are can allow you to pay the least per mile.
So here you go! If you would like me to include some additional tables or lists get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be updating the tables when I can but do comment if anything is noticeably out of date.
