Yuupon travel deals have been around for several months now. They work similarly to Groupon and offer savings of 50 percent and more over standard hotel, car rental and airline rates. Recently, Yuupon has changed their arrangement so that you know the name of the hotel before you book, a big plus if you ask me. Below is a sampling of this week’s Yuupon hotel deals:

1.  Salt Lake City – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the 499-room Hilton Salt Lake City Center in downtown Salt Lake City for $96. Travel between now and August 14, 2012.

2. Marina del Rey (Los Angeles area) – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the five-star Ritz Carlton hotel in Marina del Rey for $187. The hotel is just minutes from the beach and just four miles from Los Angeles International Airport. Travel between now and August 15, 2012.

3. Ft. Lauderdale – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the four-star, 311-room Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach, located across the street from the beach, for $105. Travel between now and August 15, 2012

4. Downtown Chicago – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the five-star, 297-room The James Hotel, located just a block away from downtown Chicago’s Magnificent Mile for $185. Travel between now and August 15, 2012.

To take advantage of one of these deals, visit the Yuupon Website. As with all of these sites, make sure that you read the fine print and restrictions before you give them your credit card number. Yuupon deals no longer have a “book by” date. They expire when all of the allotted rooms have been taken.
