Perks in Tough Times: Snag a Room Upgrade at Starwood’s Hawaii Hotels
Many hotels are adding appeal to their upgrade packages by offering free or discounted perks -- such as an upgrade to an ocean-view room, additional meals or an extra night's stay -- on a "standby" or space-only basis.
Case in point: Some Starwood hotels in Hawaii (see the Royal Hawaiian, pictured at right) are offering 50 percent discounts for room upgrades, while others are adding free nights and free breakfasts to spice up their room-upgrade packages. The WSJ advises using Hilton's Request Upon Arrival tool- to track down room upgrades. And 19 Hyatt Resorts in North America are offering free nights and room upgrades until March 31.
