Here are some of the latest summer promotions and hotel deals.

Make a reservation by June 30 for any stay through Dec. 18, 2023, and receive a $100 nightly resort credit plus 20% off the best available rate.

During your stay, a private butler will cater to your every need while you enjoy the amenities of a multibedroom accommodation on one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands. Beach Enclave is part of the Fine Hotels & Resorts program from American Express, which comes with special benefits for certain AmEx cardholders.

Adults can join in on the fun too with a mixology course, live ice carving by an Olympic Champion Carver, fire dancing, and even a champagne and dessert trolley.

Dozens of Marriott family hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are offering a summer promotion that cuts the cost of a second room in half. It’s a great deal for families looking to use the savings for more exciting activities or meals on their trip.

The offer is available on many of Marriott Bonvoy’s brands if the second room is occupied by someone under 16. Some eligible properties for this promotion include the W Muscat, the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane and Aloft Dubai Creek, among others.

Between now and Sept. 4, 2023, any “Pay With Points” redemption at a Best Western property in the United States, Canada or the Caribbean comes with a nice little surprise after you check out.

Best Western Rewards will refund 2,000 points back to your account, which is a helpful bonus to use on future stays.

Don’t miss these summer hotel deals

No matter where you’re headed, chances are there are some loyalty points promotions, hotel deals or special offers to help you save cash or enjoy more during your trip. And if not, don’t be afraid to call the hotel and politely ask if there are any deals.

Sometimes, a hotel is eager to encourage direct bookings, and if you are bringing along the whole family, it may offer you something extra to make the trip special.
