See David Bowie by day, sleep at a Radisson Blu Edwardian by night. That's the offer from three London hotels that give guests two free tickets to the upcoming Bowie exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum in spring.

The deal: The room comes with open tickets to "David Bowie Is," an exhibition that opens March 23 and traces the life and style of the British rock star over five decades. Ziggy Stardust suits, handwritten lyrics and diary entries, and snippets from films and live performances are some of the 300 items that will be on display.

Besides the tickets (two tickets per stay, not per night), guests receive breakfast and free Wi-Fi. Room prices for the package start at $257 a night, excluding tax.

When: The offer is good March 23 through July 28, based on availability.

Tested: The lowest room prices for this package are at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt (68-86 Cromwell Road). I found availability for a room on March 28 for $257 plus tax. I also found the package available at the Mercer Street Hotel (20 Mercer St. Covent Garden) on the same night for $416 a night plus tax. The two open tickets are valued at $128, according to the hotels.
