The boy born to Prince William and his wife, the former Catherine Middleton, drew throngs of people to Buckingham Palace in London after the announcement was made Monday. But what about celebrations on this side of the pond? Pacifica Hotel Co. launched an It's a Boy sale on rooms at 15 California hotels, taking 20% off the price -- but only for reservations made in the next 48 hours.
The deal: The It's a Boy sale promises the "royal treatment" for guests who want to save on stays at a number of coastal venues. Use the code "ITSABOY" when making a reservation. The sale is on at:
--Half Moon Bay Lodge in Half Moon Bay;
--FogCatcher Inn, Pelican Inn & Suites, Cambria Landing Inn, all in Cambria;
--Spyglass Inn, Cottage Inn, Sandcastle Inn, all in Pismo Beach;
--Pacifica Suites in Santa Barbara;
--The Inn at Marina del Rey, Marina del Rey Hotel, Jamaica Bay Inn, all in Marina del Rey;
--Inn at Venice Beach in Venice;
--The Belmar Hotel in Manhattan Beach;
--Laguna Cliffs Inn in Laguna Beach; and
--Sommerset Suites in San Diego.
When: The offer ends 11:59 p.m. Pacific time Wednesday for reservations through Sept. 30.
Tested: I checked availability online and found a room for Sept. 15-17 at Laguna Cliffs Inn for $127 a night instead of the usual $150 rate (prices exclude tax).
