Destinations like Cancun, Miami, and San Francisco are just a few clicks away.
We’ve just about made it through the winter months, but the coldest season can always seem a little bit longer when you don’t have any warm-weather travels on the horizon. If you’re someone who kept pushing off booking a spring break trip — whether it’s because you forgot, didn’t have time to research, or prices were just too high — and are now regretting that decision, we have excellent news. There’s a simple, easy, and free way to save some money on a last-minute hotel in April.
When you sign up for a free membership to Hotels.com, you’ll immediately open up a world of benefits and ways to earn rewards. One of those perks is called Member Prices, which provides access to discounts on select properties around the world. And right now, Hotels.com is offering 25% or more off spring break destinations in April. From an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana to a boutique hotel in San Francisco, there’s something on sale for every type of traveler.
There’s one catch, though: You have to book by April 2 to receive the discount. To help you decide where to go next month, we rounded up some of the best hotel deals you can take advantage of as an Hotels.com member this spring.
Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana
To book: Hotels.com, save up to 50 percent until April 2
Leave the kids at home and check into the adults-only Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The all-inclusive property is a 35-minute drive from the Punta Cana airport and once you arrive, you can jump right into one of its five outdoor pools. Or, if you’re more of a beach person, you can soak up the sun on the resort’s private white sand coastline — cabanas and beach umbrellas included. Several reviewers note the property is smaller than expected, but that intimacy “gives it a sense of welcomed privacy.” Depending on travel dates and room availability, Hotels.com members can save up to 50 percent on this dream trip.
To book: Hotels.com, save up to 25 percent until April 2
If you forgot to renew your passport but still want to experience a tropical vacation, head to Florida — specifically, the Nomada Residences in Miami’s Design District. Perfect for travelers who want the freedom of a short-term rental with the amenities of a resort, the property comes with studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom condos — all with kitchens, in-unit laundry, and private balconies overlooking the Miami skyline. There are also plenty of public spaces, including coworking areas, lounges, a fitness center, and a pool. Guests describe the rentals (which are 25 percent off in April) as centrally located as well as “clean, modern, and well-equipped.”
Parkway International Resort
To book: Hotels.com, save up to 30 percent until April 2
Those with Walt Disney World on their 2023 bucket list (or a family to entertain) should consider a stay at Parkway International Resort, just a 9-minute drive away. A “Florida home-away-from-home,” according to one return guest, the property has 144 spacious rooms, an outdoor pool, a children’s pool, a barbecue area, and sporting facilities. The only on-property option for food is the pool bar, but there are several restaurants within walking distance. April prices are up to 30 percent off, so you can use those extra savings on your Disney trip or on a shopping spree at the nearby Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets.
Hotel Riu Plaza Fisherman’s Wharf
To book: Hotels.com, save up to 35 percent until April 2
San Francisco might not have the bright blue waters and regular sun of a stereotypical spring break trip, but don’t write it off just yet. Hotel Riu Plaza Fisherman's Wharf is ideal for anyone looking for a conveniently located hotel in a city full of culinary hotspots and things to do. Iconic sights like Pier 39, San Francisco Bay, Fort Mason, and Lombard Street are all within walking distance of the hotel. If you prefer to relax on-property for a portion of your trip, the hotel has an outdoor pool, fitness center, bar, and on-site restaurant. While San Francisco can be an expensive place to visit, you’ll save 35 percent on your accommodations with your Hotels.com membership.
Hotel NYX Cancun
To book: Hotels.com, save up to 40 percent until April 2
Cancun and its turquoise waters are calling your name — and the all-inclusive Hotel NYX is echoing the sentiment with its 40 percent off deals. The beachfront property, outfitted with cabanas and beach umbrellas, also has an infinity pool and accompanying bar. You’re probably headed to Mexico for the sun-filled activities, but Hotel NYX also has a fitness center and spa for those guests interested in wellness. Or, if some members in your party are looking to shop, the open-air La Isla Shopping Mall can be accessed on foot.
