Aston Hotels & Resorts have kicked off a sale at some of their Hawaii hotels, with room rates ranging from $79 to $159 a night on four islands. This deal, especially if paired with an affordable flight, works for a summer or winter vacation.
[For the Record at 1:50 p.m. July 18: An earlier version of this post erroneously said the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel on Oahu charges a $10 resort fee; the hotel does not charge a resort fee. However, selected Aston Hotels & Resorts in this promotion do charge a resort fee.]
The deal: The 50 Days of Aloha sale starts at $84 a night on Oahu, $79 a night on Kauai, $89 a night on Maui and $159 a night on the Big Island; prices exclude tax. The low price comes at a cost: The entire amount must be paid in full when making a reservation, and no cancellations, changes or refunds are allowed.
When: The offer is good for stays Aug. 1 through Dec. 21 but must be booked by Aug. 29. It's based on availability, and some blackout dates apply.
Tested: I recently checked online and found availability for four nights starting Aug. 26 at these prices:
-- $90 a night for a garden-view room at the Aston Maui Lu on Maui;
-- $84 a night for an interior hotel room at the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel on Oahu; and
-- $79 a night for a garden-view room and $80 for an ocean-view room at the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel on Kauai. (Prices exclude tax.)
As a comparison, the standard rate for the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel on Oahu on the same dates was $152 plus tax a night.
