26 Jan News Flash: a better hotel rate for Seattle
When I first booked the room at the Seattle Sheraton, about 8 weeks ago, the going best rate available was $199 per night.Â Ouch!Â Hard to imagine paying two hundred smackers for a place to lay your head.Â I did see a rate of $179 prepaid.Â Seemed a little early to pay in advance.Â Well, I went back to the website today, the price was $169.Â Before I cancelled the original and spendy rez, I rang them up, asked about the $169, was told it was Internet only, that I would have to go back on line to book. Well, I just thought to ask, “Don’t you have any better rates?Â Like a special for the Flower Show next door?” Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.Â He comes back with $139!Â Love it! Book it, Danno.
I can almost smell the hyacinths at the top of the Convention Center escalator.
Bought my early bird tickets on-line, not much savings but you save the waiting, waiting in line when the doors open.
