Marriott is having a sale that knocks 20 percent of its regular weekend rates at hotels across all its brands, Thursday through Sunday nights. The Global Rate Break offer is valid for reservations made before Jan. 22 for stays from Jan. 22 to March 21.
The promotion code is F5X.
Years ago, my husband and I used to make frequent weekend trips to New York City. We’d stay on a similar deal at the Stamford Marriott, at rates far lower than those charged by hotels in the city, and take the Metro-North train into Manhattan.
With this deal, the rate for the Stamford hotel is $95.20, for a total of $106.62 with tax. That’s more than we paid 20 years ago, but not a lot more. The Courtyard Marriott in Norwalk is $71.20, or $79.74 with tax included.
