Hotels Offer Hurricane Specials for Stranded Travelers

As the East Coast braces for Hurricane Sandy to make landfall, countless travelers caught in New York, Washington D.C. and other coastal cities are left scattering for shelter. A number of luxury hotels have heard the public’s cry for help and have responded with storm-related room specials they hope can ease some tensions.

Kimpton Hotels realizes the impact 5,000-plus flight cancellations can have on travelers. They’re currently offering a 20% discount on all of their properties in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and the D.C. area through Wednesday. Guests can either book online or call the service desk at 1-800-KIMPTON and use rate code SANDY. Stranded Boston visitors can take advantage of $325 rates at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star XV Beacon for the next two nights as well.

In our nation’s capital, Four-Star The Jefferson, Washington, DC has cut prices for distressed patrons as well. Deluxe kings are going for $295, which is nearly $100 cheaper than similar rooms for the following week. The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown is also discounting its rates; the Four-Star property’s $229 special includes Wi-Fi and parking.
