If you're heading east over the winter, there are a couple of hotel promotions in New York and Boston to consider.
The Manhattan East Suite Hotels, which includes nine properties, will give you a third night free if you book two nights. The three nights have to be consecutive and at the same hotel. As suites come with kitchens, the program might enable you to save on dine-out expenses.
This program, with rooms subject to availability, runs from Jan. 5-March 5. The third night should be set up at the time of booking. The nine hotels are Beekman Tower, Dumont Plaza, Eastgate Tower, Lyden Gardens, Lyden House, Plaza Fifty, Shelbourne Murray Hill, Southgate and Surrey Hotel.
Contact travel agents or Manhattan East Suite Hotels at (800) ME-SUITE.
Until the end of January, weekend visitors to the Greater Boston area can get two nights for the price of one at 27 hotels. The two-for-one offer has to be set up at the time of booking.
