The 22nd VivaFest celebrates Mexican music, dance, arts and culture in September in San Jose.

This year's featured acts at VivaFest include Sol de Mexico Mariachi Band on Sept. 7 and the Mexican rock band Kinky on Sept. 28. Two Marriott hotels are offering room discounts on festival weekends starting at $74 a night.

The deal: The VivaFest package discounts rooms but doesn't include tickets to concerts or events. The deal isn't available online; you have to call and ask for the VivaFest rate.

Fairfield Inn & Suites San Jose Airport (1755 N. 1st St.) offers rooms with refrigerator and microwave, fitness room and pool access, free Wi-Fi and breakfast starting at $74 a night plus tax. The San Jose Marriott (301 S. Market St.) has rooms with access to fitness center and pool, and discounted valet parking starting at $89 a night plus tax.

When: The deal is good Sept. 6-9, Sept. 13-15 and Sept. 27-29 at Fairfield Inn; same dates plus Sept. 30 at the San Jose Marriott.

Tested: I called the Fairfield Inn and found the discount available for Sept. 6-9. Room price is $74 a night plus tax -- $25 less than the best available rate for the same nights.

Info: Fairfield Inn & Suites San Jose Airport, (800) 228-2800; and San Jose Marriott, (408) 280-1300
