As usual, I am seeing lots of great deals and here's why:
Most people are thinking about thanksgiving and Christmas and shopping and what to buy, etc These hotels and resorts need your money so you will see some amazing rates. In addition the big cities want you to come shop so they partner up with local malls, stores, and restaurants to give you a deal that will get you and your money to them.
For us, we have ventured down to Portland, Oregon the last few years because of the tax free shopping. Keep it to within a few hours drive to lessen the stress and nothing says it has to be a shopping trip, but anything relaxing and mellow does the trick for us. Here's an example of some trips I would take. You don't have to be in our area but look at some of the deals I found and look for similar in your city!
Seaside, OR- Just 3 hours away and I love the beach in the winter. We love to stay at River tide suites because it gives you the condo style which works for us with the kids and the separate bedrooms. 1 bedroom suites at $79 and 2 bedroom suites at $99. That's a great deal! It may have to be a weekday or Sunday to get a deal like this but that works if you just want to get away for the night.
Portland, Oregon- Another Oregon trip and you can find all kind of shopping/eating deals.
Benson Hotel-$194 for deluxe accommodations, valet parking, a $25 Macy's gift card, 10% off Macy's pass, and a free photo Santa land pass. You're basically getting the room for about $130 and if you're going to go shopping there anyway its a good deal.

Roosevelt Hotel-One of our favorites. so far $239($263 w/tax) is the best I have found (they say as low as $219) but this deal includes $50 gift card to Nordstrom's, $50 to City Centre Mall, $40 for dinner (choice of 4 restaurants) , and valet parking(about $30). Amazing! That makes your room about $93 including tax. You cant beat that!
