I booked our upcoming stay in Monaco back in January. Today I received an exclusive Leaders Club notification from Leading Hotels of the World introducing double stay credits for stays of at least two nights booked between 09 and 15 February at any of their hotels in France, Monaco and Benelux. Arrgh! See offer link here!
Thankfully my booking starts on the 14th so I have not missed out on this ridiculously good deal but this is a valuable reminder why booking non cancelable, non refundable rates is often a bad idea out of season. Leaders Club and other luxury hotels do offer occasional flash sales like this.
This is how I would have taken advantage of this offer. I would have split my stay of 4 nights between 2 hotels so that I achieved 4 stay credits for 4 hotel nights. These nights may well work out at the same price as a single night in many of the high end Leading Hotels in high season.
Whichever way you look at it, book cleverly and you have 4 nights in Monaco for free to generate a night at a top hotel in the summer which is likely to match the value of the 4 nights. In fact one night in season may well cost more than the 4 nights out of season in Monaco. Easily your best bargain here is the gorgeous Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo which comes in at £259 per night 11-13 feb or mattress run with the Royal Riviera at £133 per night for these dates. For each 2 night stay you will earn you almost half a night at any lhw in the world.
