Fall Travel Deals

Fortunately the stock market seems to have calmed down a bit this week (or not), not that anyone out there will be booking a two week trip to Bali anytime soon. While we don’t usually feature travel bargains (there are just too many to keep up with), we can’t help but notice that plenty of hotels are offering enticements to get you to hit the road these days, including many of our favorites. A few we think that are too good to pass up:

Now through December 20, Playa del Carmen’s chic Hotel Basico (below) and Hotel Deseo are offering a third night free and 50 percent off food and drinks. Both are on the Mexican Riviera, about an hour's drive from Cancun.

Book with an American Express card now through March 31, 2009 to get your third night free at any W Hotel. Use code TNR or TNH.

We can’t seem to log onto Facebook right now without seeing an ad for Iceland. You really can get good deals with the Krona tanking. (We would feel bad for their country if our own weren't overrun by Europeans.) Why would you want to go? JSG’s Annie has been and loved the nightlife, regional cuisine and shopping, but wasn’t a fan of the Blue Lagoon—it wasn’t hot enough for her tastes (admittedly she is a cold water wimp).

Our fave hotel group, the Kimpton, is offering a 20% discount on room rates if you arrive via Amtrak, valid on Friday and Saturday nights through March 31st in Boston, D.C., and NYC. JSG's Hope sees a trip to the Muse in her future!

Visit the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya, Mexico and get one night free with a two night stay, now until December 15th, 2008.

Lastly, there's still time to take advantage of the JSG exclusive discount to Escape to Shape Columbia.
