There are two Four Seasons hotels in Boston; Four Seasons Boston and One Dalton Street, but how can guests get the best deal, offer or discount?
Why Chose The Four Seasons Hotels In Boston?
Four Seasons Hotel Boston is a great hotel. They say: “Located alongside the Victorian brownstone homes of the Back Bay neighborhood, Four Seasons Hotel Boston is the ideal base for exploring “America’s Walking City,” with top attractions just steps away. Follow the Freedom Trail, shop the renowned boutiques of Newbury Street, or simply relax in your newly renovated room overlooking the historic Public Garden, Beacon Hill, and the gilded dome of the State House.”
But just to confuse things, One Dalton Street is also a great hotel. They say: “A cutting-edge 61-storey skyscraper in the heart of Back Bay, Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston is vibrant, modern and stylish. Stay with us to experience a new kind of urban chic, complete with a stunning Wellness Floor and the world-renowned Japanese izakaya-inspired restaurant, Zuma.”
Is Four Seasons Hotel Boston or One Dalton Street best? We have reviewed this separately (click on the highlighted text to find out) but for the sake of this article, we are looking at which hotel offers the better deal.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at both Four Seasons hotels in Boston:
1. Free Benefits Are As Good As A Discount
To get the best discount at a Four Seasons hotel with free loyalty style benefits, you need to book with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, including discounted and special offer rates, but by booking with us, you get extra free benefits, including free breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), a welcome gift, and a $100 resort credit. We offer similar free benefits at over 1,000 other luxury hotels across the world.
2. Book A Special Offer At Four Seasons Boston
The Four Seasons Hotel Boston’s own website lists all the special offers currently available at the hotel. There is a similar page on the Four Seasons One Dalton Street website.
You can combine these offers with the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge.
Usually, offers available on the Four Seasons website include their stay longer and third-night free deals which means that you receive a complimentary third night. Advance purchase deals enable you to take advantage of around a 20 percent discount on the room rate.
3. Book Early At Either Boston Four Seasons Hotels
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out, so they don’t need to discount their rooms during the high season. Obviously, Boston is a city but the facilities in both these hotels make them the perfect leisure destination too.
4. Choose The Cheaper Four Seasons In Boston
For varying reasons, one of these Four Seasons hotels in Boston will be cheaper than the other on specific dates. As both hotels are fantastic, it is worth thinking about booking the cheaper one as you will have a brilliant stay, whichever Boston Four Seasons you chose.
5. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
This is a trick title! Four Seasons doesn’t reward guests with loyalty points. Most Four Seasons hotel room rates start at $500 – $1000 USD per night, and because there isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done.
If you are a premium member of an alternate hotel’s loyalty scheme, you get premium benefits, particularly if you are a regular guest. The only way of getting this kind of special treatment and loyalty benefit at a Four Seasons hotel is by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
6. Change Your Holiday Dates
Where possible, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target the Four Seasons hotel you are planning to visit, when it is cheapest and offers the best discounts. Try to avoid Christmas and New Year’s Eve. You will pay so much more during the holidays, and you can rarely take advantage of special offers or deals on these dates. Also when the hotel is full, the check-in team is less likely to upgrade your room as there may not be rooms available in the category above yours.
7. Be Clever With Your Discounted Rates
It is worth taking the weather into account when choosing when to visit. Winter in Boston is cold, so bear this in mind when booking. A summer break here can be idyllic.
8. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
9. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts. These codes are not widely available to the general public, and the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote from our luxury travel concierge so you can compare prices and benefits and get the complete picture before booking.
10. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
