Find the Cheapest Hotel & Dates For the New Club Carlson Promotion
With Club Carlson’s newest promotion being so generous, many people are looking to find the lowest possible rates to see if making a mattress run is worth it. Earlier today one of my readers Whitney asked what is the best way to do a calendar search to find the lowest price.
Whitney wrote, “Any tips/tricks on how to find the cheapest night? If this is a Q1 promo, and I wanted to do a mattress run in Charlotte, NC, I’d like to find the cheapest 2 consecutive nights from Jan – March without clicking on all 90 days individually.” Let me try to answer that for you.
How To Do A Calendar Search For Hotels
First, you want to search for hotels in your area on ClubCarlson.com. Enter a date range for which you want to see the rates. You can only search for a maximum of 45 days.
In this example I will search for rates from January 15, 2015 through February 28, 2015. Some hotels may not have availability for the full range of dates, so you may want to break your search up into smaller chunks.
For Charlotte, NC there are 6 properties. In this example I will use the first result. To see the daily rates to determine which is lowest simply click “Rate Details” below the “Book Now” button.
After clicking “Rate Details” you should see the rate for each and every day during your date range. This should help you see which combination of dates is the cheapest.
This is the easiest way I know to see all of the nightly rate information side by side to determine the lowest priced dates. While it still takes a little work, you should be able to find the lowest prices pretty quickly!
