From the LA Times:
Luxe travel deal: the Leading Hotels of the World on sale for $19.28
No, it’s not a misprint, the luxe and often uber-elegant collection of hotels called the Leading Hotels of the World wants to celebrate its founding year, 1928, by lowering room rates to reflect that year. Select rooms will be on sale for $19.28. Set your alarm clocks though –- it’s a one-day-only sale that begins Oct. 1 at noon GMT, which means 5 a.m. to us on the West Coast, and lasts for just 80 minutes.
