Deal of the Week

June 18, 1995

Thirty Palm Springs hotels are participating in a promotion that offers travelers a free night's accommodation with the purchase of one to five nights' stay. Prices range from $39 to $126.75 per room per night, excluding taxes, and are based on availability. About half of the participating accommodations are offering the discount rates through Aug. 31; most others end in September and the rest conclude later in the fall. Some of the establishments have blacked out Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends. Twenty-two of the hotels require at least two paid nights to obtain a third free night; others require from one to five paid nights. The properties range from budget lodgings to luxury accommodations. Other rules and restrictions may apply and reservations are recommended. To obtain a brochure, call (800) 34-SPRINGS.
