Hotels just got a little more affordable for last minute, “after-school-starts” getaways. Today (August 29, 2011) only, Hotwire is offering a one-day sale on their hotel prices. Examples include:

  • Las Vegas 4-star hotel from $35/night
  • Orlando 3-star hotel from $35/night
  • San Francisco 3-star hotel from $35/night
  • Miami 3-star hotel from $57/night
  • Chicago 4-star hotel from $75/night

The sale is valid for new bookings made by 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time) tonight, August 29, for travel from now until September 19. Rates are subject to availability and hotel taxes and fees are additional. Follow this link to check for hotels offered in this deal.

If you’ve never used Hotwire before, the site tells you the rating (three or four-star, for example) of the hotel and the general location, but the exact hotel isn’t revealed until after your booking is completed.
