Yesterday I showed you how to stay at the Astor on the Park, right on Central Park for just a few bucks. Today, another hotel, just down the street... The Plaza. There's not much to be said about The Plaza. Everybody knows this landmark, Conrad Hilton bought in his early years [too bad it's no HHonors property anymore]... However, one night at The Plaza can cost you easily $500. So, this post is not about how to get the most for your $ but how to save a few $. You probably have heard about the Fairmont Family & Friends Rate [there should be a seperate thread about this promo in the Fairmont forum]. No matter what you'll hear or read about this promo beeing on / off / off / on... it's alive and for real. Just follow theses easy steps: Go to http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=537367313 Send a friend request to Timothy Within 24 hrs you'll be added to his friends Go back on Facebook to visit Timothy's site Click on the link: LuckyU Request a quote for your desired hotel and dates Ahmed will post a reply within a few hours If the rate is available, send Ahmed all required information and you're done.
