Little Nell in Aspen, CO – Colorado Resident Special is Back!

The Little Nell in Aspen has brought back it’s infamous Colorado resident special.  You can stay in a town view room (subject to availability) for $185 per night during October and November.  That’s close to 50% off the Little Nell’s regular rates.  We’ve taken advantage of this special at the Little Nell in years past.  It’s a great deal at a great hotel where the rooms are spectacular and service is king.  Plus, valet parking is included at no additional charge.  We can’t say enough good things about the Little Nell.  While other hotels in Aspen claim their 5 stars, the Little Nell actually has earned and deserved them.  As a side note, the Little Nell is also pet friendly!  So book now, rooms never last long at this special rate.  Not from Colorado, you can still get 20% off the regular room rate on stays of three nights or more.  To book the Colorado Resident Special, call the hotel directly at 888-843-6355 as it’s not available online.

Rare Deal at the Wickininnish Inn on Vancouver Island, Canada

A rare deal today on Rue La La for the Wickininnish Inn in Tofino, Canada. Stay in a Chesterman Beach Loft Suite for 25% off September 23 through December 23, 2011.  You must reserve your stay by September 30 and rooms are subject to availability.  There are just a few of these rooms at the Wick, so now is the time to decide.  With absolutely beautiful views of the Pacific and a prolific setting, you’ll enjoy some downtime at the Wick.  We’ve been here at least once a year for the past 11 years and it’s spectacular.  It’s a bit of challenge to get to, but well worth the time and effort.  This is the first time we’ve seen this type of sale at this Relais and Chateaux property.

Travelzoo Deal: $29 for 6 Bottles of Premium Wines

A great deal from Travelzoo on six bottles of premium wine from Richard Branson’s Virgin wine for $29.  Now, that $29 does not include tax or shipping ($19), but its still a great deal for good wine.  We haven’t tried any of this wine ourselves, but Richard Branson usually doesn’t put the Virgin brand on anything if it’s not at least halfway decent.  And, when you’re only really spending around $9 per bottle, with shipping and tax included, it’s not a bad deal.  You also have the option to do all red, all white or a combination thereof.  This Travelzoo deal was a local “Denver” deal, however in reading the terms and conditions, it appears to be valid as long as you live within a state that can be shipped to: AZ, CO, DC, IA, ID, IN, LA, MN, NC, ND, NM, NV, OR, SC, TN, VA, WA, WI and WY only.
