If you're still trying to get out of Dodge, no doubt you're spending more money on this vacation than you'd anticipated. The Buckingham Hotel in midtown has come up with a bit of a deal to soften the blow, and soften the surface you're sleeping on, considering the quality of those airport cots -- if you were lucky enough to get one.
The hotel's new "In-Transit" promotion will take the cost of your cab from LaGuardia or JFK off your room rate, up to $50. The offer is good for a one-night stay, subject to availability, naturally. And you'll have to produce your plane ticket and taxi receipt to take advantage.
The Buckingham Hotel is at 101 W. 57th St. The discount is valid for those who've had flight delays of more than four hours and can't be applied to current reservations. For further details about the promotion or to book it, call 888-511-1900. To check out the hotel before you call, visit buckinghamhotel.com.
