Sniqueaway for Valentines day...

OK so Valentines day is right around the corner, are you ready?  You could do the usual stuff again this year, or you could surprise your love one with a get away to someplace fun for a couple of days or more.  Awhile back I found a great place called Sniqueaway that is kind of like Groupon or, only for vacations.  Sniqueaway is part of TripAdvisor and offers great deals on 4 and 5 star vacation properties at locations all over the globe.  This weeks they are offering a stay at the Nine Zero hotel in Boston for $119 - $139 per night, the usual rate is $179 - $200 per night.  The Nine Zero (this link goes to the hotel site NOT Sniqueaway) is part of the Kimpton Hotel chain and is pet friendly so you can bring your furry pal as well as your sweet heart.  Don't feel like being in the US for vacation? No problem, how about warm and sunny Mexico?  You can stay at the Garza Blanca (this link goes to the hotel site NOT Sniqueaway) in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.  You can get a junior suite or one bedroom suite for $179 - $199 per night saving $100 per night!  If you would like to travel with another couple you can get a two room suite for only $249 per night, a savings of $153 per night, then split the cost between two couples and you save even more!

The sales usually last about a week then new properties and destinations become available, I am always checking to see what is coming up.  Currently I am on the hunt for a fun get away to someplace close to us, although there is a beautiful hotel called  The Garden Gables Inn (again, this goes to the B&B site, not Sniqueaway) coming up in Lenox. MA that is a Bed & Breakfast Spa that would be a great stop for us when we visit my Nephew.  A nice feature of the site is being able to set up reminders for future deals, but if you are not interested in what is currently on sale be sure to sign up for the emails, then you won't miss a fantastic deal.

As far as travel deals go, I have not seen any other site that has been able to provide this kind of discount on such nice properties.  I know you can name your own deal and get discounts with some of those other sites, but you may end up in the smallest room they have since you don't get to see the room in advance.  When I found Sniqueaway I was overjoyed, and even though I haven't booked anything yet, I love to look at the new sales and take a mini vacation from my sofa. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
