Climb aboard for a trip around the world of travel
Some of this week's travel bargains:
The older you are, the less you will pay at Starwood properties. Starwood's promotion allows you to pay the dollar amount of the year you were born on your second (and possibly third) consecutive nights of a stay at participating Starwood properties, including Sheraton, Westin, Four Points, Aloft, Le Meridien, Element and W Hotels. So if you were born in 1950, you would pay the regular rate for the first night, but only $50 a night for the second. At the Four Points by Sheraton Manhattan SoHo Village, for example, that would translate to $175 for the first night and $50 for the second -- an average of $112.50 a night.
The offer is valid for stays through Dec. 31; some properties are extending the deal for a third night; select luxury properties are charging $100 plus your birth year with this offer. The minimum-stay requirement varies by property. Use promotion code NBR.
