This deal includes your room, a $40 dining voucher(usually choice of 3 restaurants), a $50 gift card for Pacific place (the mall next door), $50 gift card to city centre (another mall), and valet parking ($29 plus tax). So keep in mind on the breakdowns you are getting about $170.00 in extras here, all very useable.
Weekend rate comes to $255 with tax (room is $219 plus tax) (I used Nov 1) A regular booking would be $169 plus tax or $197 and include nothing. If you parked you are now at about $226. That means you are only saving about $30 off the deal that will give you $140 in extras(I subtracted the parking)! Its a no brainer, book the shopping package!
Weeknight rate- The rates I looked up break down to the same. A little searching may save you even more.
If you plan on shopping, parking, and eating, you would spend the $170 anyway most likely so really you are getting a room for about $80.
You get your room, a $50 gift card, valet parking($31), and a certificate for $25 for the lobby restaurant or can be used for room service. These are all useable extras valued at $106.
The deal also includes 10% off at Macys, a shopping tote, and a voucher for a photo at santaland. If you uses these this could save you more but due to the nature of them not really useable. I know we didnt use them when we went and the added value could add on $10 or $15 I am guessing?
Weekend rates- I used December 6 as an example. Rate comes in at $239 plus tax or $273. A regular room booking through website runs $189 plus tax or $216. If you park you are now up to about $250. for $23 more dollars you score about $75 in useable extras(I backed out the parking).
weekday rates- coming in at the same, although I think the room booking seperate may go a little lower.
I think this deal was priced better last year, but still a great deal. Don't forget it's tax free shopping too. If you plan on shopping anyway, its worth thinking about.
