    Cool, I'm sure that will be getting booked. Looks like someone put the decimal point in the wrong place.

    At that rate the 12,000 Starpoint redemption is a sweet deal! :p

    Think of how many points you would get if you booked that rate and used your SPG credit card :p

    Of course! However, you have to park it at the hotel at the AAA parking rate :eek:

    Well today (unfortunately) if that rate includes electricity, food, and running clean water, it might be a good deal.

    Best AAA rate ever was a last-minute Hyatt Place, with an airport shuttle and free bottle of wine, for $20 less than any other published rate.

    I've seen the Westin Minneapolis (downtown) offering a AAA rate for a standard room over $600 when their regular best available rate (not prepaid) was in the $100-200 range.

    Wish the decimal point error was in the other direction :)

    I would have booked it. And actually stayed at that rate. Chances are you would've gotten a refund, and bonus points for the inconvenience.

    I was checking for hotels in Mar 2013 and found the same AAA rate. It must have to do with a glitch when you try to book AAA too far in advance. I wonder if AAA hasn't yet re-signed the contract with Starwood to get the good rates for their customers (or vice versa).
