Inter-Continental Hotels has put in a bid for family business this summer with discounts at nine of its domestic properties.
The discounts are available only to families, two or more persons to a room with a maximum of four. You also have to stay a minimum of two consecutive nights. There is one discounted price for deluxe rooms, which varies from hotel to hotel. The discount off regular rates for these rooms ranges from 15% to 68%, according to Inter-Continental.
Hotels in New York, Miami, Houston, New Orleans, San Diego, San Antonio, San Francisco, Maui and Hilton Head, S.C., are involved. At each hotel you'll also get discount coupons for various local attractions.
If you rent an Avis car (mid-size to a luxury group car) at Avis' SuperValue rates for three consecutive days, the fourth day will be free (except at Hilton Head, where you have to rent the car for four days to earn a free day's car use). You get a voucher at checkout time from the hotel to turn in to Avis to get credit for the free day's rental.
