The deal: The window period for this deal is short, but it’s a good value if you can make the dates work. The $299 price, which includes hotel taxes, is based on double occupancy and includes three nights at the Castle Ocean Resort Hotel near Waikiki plus round-trip airfare from Los Angeles. (The package alo applies if you are flying from San Francisco.) You can upgrade to other hotels by paying extra.
When: The offer is good for stays Nov. 28 to Dec. 4, based on availability; you can get the deal for a higher rate at other hotels through Dec. 15.
Tested: I checked online and by phone and found a slightly lower price than advertised: $579 for two ($289.50 each), leaving Los Angeles on Nov. 28 and returning Dec. 1.
