Top 9 Luxury hotel booking sites that offer huge travel savings


Luxury hotels have long aimed for an image of exclusivity setting pricing beyond the reach of most travelers. Depending on the destination, luxury hotel room rates can run upwards of $1,000 per night

Always on the lookout for ways to add luxury at a discounted rate, I wanted to share several websites that will let you book a luxury hotel room for less. There are a number of growing Web sites that offer “private sales” of 20 to 70 percent off luxury accommodations to registered members. Below are 9 luxury hotel members-only booking sites that offer deeply discounted rates on worldwide luxury hotels, resorts, villas, even yachts.  Don't let the word "member" scare you, all you have to do is register with your email address to start receiving the weekly offers.

Curious if the deals were worth the hype, I did my own comparison shopping and found these luxury hotel members-only booking sites beat the hotel’s Web site and other travel booking sites like and Kayak.com and Expedia.com nearly every time, often by a significant discount.

Sign up, do your research and start saving on your next luxury vacation.
