Memorial Day Travel Should Increase by 1.5%

Are you one of many planning to gas up the car this Memorial Day and go exploring? If AAA is correct, you might see more on the road than last year. The number of people traveling 50 miles or more from home should rise to 32.4 million, according to the AAA, as opposed to the 31.9 million motoring a year ago. Last summer, high gas prices and a shaky economy contributed to fewer trips than planned, but bargains and higher stress levels mean that Memorial Day mini-vacations are almost a necessity for some families.

If you are taking a trip out of town by car, there's no need to rough it in a seedy motel or a shabby chain--or a campground, for that matter. Luxury hotels are priced lower than ever, and some of the best deals are pretty easy to unearth with the help of a luxury hotel website offering perks like What a Hotel! or a travel agent.

Have a look through a dedicated North American listing that details luxury hotels by city and state for your convenience. If you are headed to Boston by car, for example, you can choose between nine locations in the city, including some with Exclusive Perks by booking through The Boston Harbor Hotel offers a free room upgrade, complimentary full American breakfast, a $50 credit towards the spa, F & B, or parking, a seasonal treat, and a 4 p.m. late check-out (subject to availability). Doesn't that sound like a great choice for a family Memorial Day weekend? You can also browse the rest of the Best of Boston Hotels on to compare other luxury hotels.

Besides Boston, other great Memorial Day stops include Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Phoenix, all of which have hotels that feature Exclusive Complementary Perks obtained through booking with Save some money this upcoming holiday weekend and have a great time this May!
