If you haven’t heard of Hotwire and are planning a trip, it is the place for booking amazing hotels for cheap!
Mr. Knight and I first used Hotwire for Mr. Knight’s 23rd Birthday weekend in Orlando. We rented a 4 star hotel (the Rosen Shingle Creek) for $60 a night. Can you believe that? Just $60 a night… and the hotel was AMAZING!! The deal with Hotwire is, you select the general area you would like to stay and the amount of stars. They don’t tell you the name of the hotel till after you have booked. We had such a great experience the first time around that Mr. Knight and I decided to book our hotel night (before our big plane ride to Maui) in Jacksonville.
And look at this super chic and modern hotel we got near the airport for $70 a night:

Wow… I feel incredibly hip right now.
I went to the Aloft: A Vision of W Hotels and checked the price they were offering for the same room and the same timeframe. They are offering the room for $112 a night, while we got a deal of $70 a night via Hotwire. Saving $42 a night on a super sweet hotel? That’s what is called “awesome” in our book. :-)
