Here is a potential great deal for anyone looking to visit true island paradise in Hawaii or Bora Bora. Hint hint, maybe for a certain #hustle blog’s wedding in February 2012. Starwood is offering 50% off rack rates for their Hawaii & French Polynesia properties from now until June 30, 2012. Here is the link.
At first glance, 50% off sounds like an amazing deal, but be aware that it is discounted from the rack rate, which is the full published rate of a hotel room. You may be able to find a better deal by simply searching Starwood’s web site (standard rate, AAA rate, etc.) or on Kayak/Expedia/Orbitz. ALWAYS crosscheck the rates on other sites because you never know which site may have the best deal.
Where the edge lies is the higher end properties that are included in this promotion. The St. Regis Princeville on the island of Kauai in Hawaii and the St. Regis Bora Bora are 2 of the most expensive hotels you’ll come across.
