Many Seattle hotels slash rates by half or more in winter. The city's visitors bureau sponsors an annual program, the Seattle Super Saver Package, in which you can book hotel deals by phone, (800) 535-7071, or Web site, www.seattlesupersaver.com. The deals, through April 14, are subject to availability, and you may get an even lower rate with other discounts. For instance, the Westin Seattle lists a $139 Super Saver rate (regularly $295), but as of Dec. 14, the hotel offered a $109 rate for AAA members for a Jan. 11 and 12 stay.
