Just booked two trips

June 23rd, 2007 at 09:13 am

DW and I are celebrating our 15th anniversary in a few weeks. My mom bought us Broadway show tickets (Avenue Q). Originally, we were only going to go up for the day. Then we decided we'd really prefer to stay over. I started looking around for a good hotel rate. Conveniently, we got a free night certificate from Marriott in the mail the other day. We get one every year on the anniversary of our credit card account. Using that, I booked a night at the Renaissance hotel at the Meadowlands, about 6 miles outside of NYC. It is a much nicer hotel than we would stay in if we were paying. The CC has a $65 annual fee, but it is well worth it for the free certificate alone, besides some other perks. The room would have been $170 plus tax if we paid for it.

Also, I booked our annual Disney World trip. We are renting a timeshare through SkyAuction. We've done that 2 previous years and really like the one resort. This year, we're paying $286 for the week, or less than $41/nite. That's a little higher than last time, but I'm certainly not complaining.

    Congratulations! Hope that you have a great time that I am sure is most deserved.

    Have you ever tried Vistana Resorts mext to the theme park? We have stayed in quite a few resorts there.

    Aleta - No, we've never been to Vistana though I've heard it is very nice. We're staying at a place called Orbit One Vacation Villas. This will be our 3rd time there. It is small and quiet, just the way we like it.

    Happy Anniversary! What a great deal - free room and free entertainment!

    I think that is a great price for Orlando! And its really a villa?? Awesome!

    boomeyers - It is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo. It has a full kitchen, washer and dryer and whirlpool tub in the master bath. It also has a screened in patio/balcony. We stayed there in '04 and '05. Last year, my MIL joined us so we needed 3 bedrooms so we rented a townhouse somewhere else.
