Book The Cheapest Rates At Four Seasons Hotels


Book A Hotel

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts offers some of the world’s best luxury hotels and resorts. They are never cheap. By being clever, staying in the low season, and making use of offers and complimentary upgrades, you can get a better deal than simply booking the rack rate.

Spoiler alert. One of the only ways to beat the deals on the Four Seasons website (along with beating the rates on other online travel agencies) is to book your next Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we can get you free loyalty-style benefits, room upgrades, and perks at the same rates as you will find on There are a number of other ways to book Four Seasons hotel rooms cheaply, which I have outlined below, but our concierge offers the best value when you take all the free extras into account.

The Four Seasons hotel benefits that we offer are prioritized because we are an exclusive Four Seasons agent. What does this mean? Put simply, a room booked by us will get priority upgrades over those who book using Virtuoso or Amex Finest Hotels & Resorts, so if there is only one room left, which is the category above yours, we put you at the front of the line for this upgrade!

There are currently around 100 Four Seasons properties in more than 40 countries, and there are plans to build and launch many more new hotels. We have listed some of the cheapest Four Seasons hotels, and it is worth noting that each hotel is one of the very best in that destination. In this article, we outline some genuine ways to save money on your next Four Seasons hotel stay and how to bag your next Four Seasons room at the very cheapest rate.

Why Four Seasons?

The thing the Four Seasons hotels do so well is to provide a guarantee of room quality, service, and a resort of an extremely high standard. Wherever you go in the world, the rooms will be large and luxurious. The bathrooms, in particular, are always enormous, even in the base rooms. Their cheapest rooms are still of an excellent size, standard, and quality. In fact, they are usually identical to the rooms with a larger price tag and are often only differentiated from each other by the view.

As an example, at the Four Seasons Maui, the cheapest rooms are the rooms with Mountain views (which face towards the car park). These rooms are the same size and quality as the Garden View Rooms, where your lanai looks over the garden again identical to the next up, with the Partial Ocean, followed by the Ocean View rooms. You are paying for the view in this situation as even the cheapest room is a great room of similar or the same size.

Of course, in the cheapest room, you are just facing the wrong way and won’t hear the crashing of the waves as you fall asleep. But I am very sure you will have a similarly great holiday, whichever room you choose, and if you book via our travel concierge, we can bump you up a room level for free (as well as offering a bunch of other free benefits).

This level of quality guarantees you an enjoyable stay at any Four Seasons hotel around the world, whatever room you book. Communal areas are also always immaculate, and the staff are always welcoming and often address you by your name (although I still don’t know how they manage to do this, bearing in mind the size of some Four Seasons hotels!).

Many luxury hotel addicts prefer Aman hotels, “Aman Junkies,” or choose hotels that are part of the Leading Hotels Of The World overlooking Four Seasons hotels. Having stayed at all three many times, I believe all three hotel chains have their merits.

Aman Hotels vs. Four Seasons

Aman hotels tend to be one of the most special hotels and offer smaller boutique hotels rather than 100+ room palaces. But do remember this tends to be reflected in the price. Aman hotels tend to be the most expensive of these three chains. Aman hotels usually have more of an individual personality than Four Seasons hotels, as they are more directly immersed in the local surroundings. If you stay at the Aman Canal Grande in Venice, there is no doubt that you are staying in a palace in Venice. It oozes character but is missing a crucial facility. It doesn’t have a pool!

Leading Hotels of the World vs. Four Seasons

Leading Hotels of the World also guarantee a certain level of luxury with local staff and tonnes of character. When we stay at the Hotel Hermitage, our favorite hotel in Monaco, there is no doubt that you are on the Cote D’Azur in the center of Monte Carlo. It just feels French. The rooms within the hotel differ in size, some with views, some without. All are great, but they don’t have the consistency of a Four Seasons hotel. You will be less sure about what you are going to get. Hotel Hermitage captures the personality of the French Riviera, but your experience will be a surprise as the hotel is so individual.

Price Comparison

The price of Leading Hotels of the World hotels and resorts varies massively, particularly when comparing times of the season, as you can pick up so really cheap rates at these hotels out of season. In contrast, the price of Four Seasons hotels tends to be much more consistent, with rooms rarely discounted. Instead, Four Seasons hotels usually offer three-for-the-price-of-two or four-for-three packages in the low season.

Up the coastline, another favorite of ours that is part of Leading Hotels Of The World is the Royal Riviera, another gem in the lhw portfolio with bags of personality. This is within 5 minute drive of the Four Seasons Cap Ferrat, and the difference is clear. At the Royal Riviera, you feel like you are in France, with French staff and individual rooms, each very different, some with funny-shaped bathrooms, some with views, some without, all with Bvlgari amenities, which I love.

But how do you work out which room to book? How do you know whether the restaurant is good? How do you know if the bar is any good and worth spending the evening?

You see, because it is not a Four Seasons hotel, you cannot be sure what you will experience before arriving. It may be better than a Four Seasons hotel or worse, but you can’t be sure either way.

By contrast, the Four Seasons Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat is immaculate and perfect in every way. The rooms are large and seem brand new. The views are magnificent, the pool is magnificent. The gardens are almost unbelievably perfect, not a leaf out of place.

Does it feel like you are in the South of France? No. Frankly, you could be in Hawaii. Four Seasons makes everything so perfect it could be argued that this level of Disneyfication can take some of the soul out of place.

Why I Love A Four Seasons Hotel

Don’t get me wrong dear reader, I love Four Seasons hotels, not least because they are so lovely to my own child. My little boy, who is growing at an amazing rate, is still welcomed with open arms across all Four Seasons hotels. I have never felt uncomfortable taking him out in the evening or fearful when I see other families at Four Seasons hotels as I have never seen a badly behaved child at a Four Seasons on all my travels – they must be worn out from having too much fun!

And when you are tired and in an unfamiliar part of the world that is far from home, a Four Seasons hotel will make you feel cossetted and safe. The staff will know where the nearest pharmacy or doctor is. They will have a supply of any toiletries that you forgot. They will cater for your child who refuses to eat an egg because “there are black bits in it” (pepper), even if that means redelivering a different version of the same meal twice. They will even entertain your children at one of their many wonderful kids’ clubs, so it is a real vacation for you as well as the kids.

Where necessary, they will provide an adult-only pool so that you can keep your sanity. Four Seasons will satisfy the needs and tastes of any discerning traveler and is, without a doubt one of the world’s best and most well-known luxury hotel brands. They will have thought of everything, and even though their environment may be slightly sanitized and have more of a Four Seasons personality than the personality of the local area, I am a major fan.

Four Seasons Promotional Offers

There are deals at Four Seasons hotels that you can take advantage of, such as second, third, or fourth night free, depending on the season. These 3 for 2 and 4 for 3 vouchers can be an incredible deal if you have a specific Four Seasons hotel in mind and are flexible on when you want to visit. These offers can be found on the offers tab on the menu bar of the Four Seasons hotel homepage. Each hotel has its own specific offers page. The perks that you get by booking with our concierge can also be combined with these Four Seasons deals.

Early booking discount rates, special promotional packages, rates with promo codes, friends and family rates, corporate rates, group rates, and other discounted rates usually also qualify for the perks that you get by booking with our concierge, but it is always worth checking with our travel experts to be sure.

How About Aggregator Websites?

The lowest room rate at a Four Seasons hotel for your requested travel dates may be found on aggregator websites like HotelsCombined and Trivago. These aggregators verify hotel prices and deal at hundreds of other sites (e.g.,,,, Hotelopia, Expedia, etc.) and show where you can book the cheapest room rate. The problem with these rates and deals is that, often, valuable extras are not included. As an example, breakfasts are often excluded from these rates.

Breakfast at Four Seasons hotels costs in the region of $60 USD per person per day, although this does vary depending on the property. Arguably, you can often grab breakfast at a diner or cafe nearby for closer to $10 USD per person, but this is a hassle, and, for me, breakfast is part of the joy of staying in a luxury hotel.

Add the value of potential room upgrades, early check-in / late check-out, the gift, and food and beverage credit of $100 USD per stay that you get for free by booking with our concierge, and you can easily argue that you are getting $200 USD per night of value in benefits (if not more) over and above the aggregator website.

For me, marginally cheaper rates found on an aggregator website (and they are not always cheaper!) do not outweigh the free Four Seasons Virtuoso Partner benefits you get by booking with our concierge.

Is There A Four Seasons Loyalty Program?

There have been rumors wafting about regarding a consumer Four Seasons loyalty program for years. The truth is that none of these rumors have come to fruition. The only way to get loyalty style benefits is to book through a high-end travel agency like our own concierge.

Four Seasons doesn’t have a revenue-based loyalty program, so you will not earn credits with the company towards free hotel nights. You will not get any extra benefits either.

Four Seasons’ CEO Allen Smith explained the lack of a loyalty program as a decision based on customer feedback that showed that “Four Seasons guests are far less concerned about accumulating points to be redeemed for rewards as they are in a position where they’re recognized, and we understand their preferences and can serve them in that highly personalized way they’ve come to expect.”

Why doesn’t Four Seasons reward loyal consumers who book directly via the company’s official website? Who knows, but if you book with our agency, this doesn’t need to be a concern, as you get loyalty-style benefits for free.

Is It Worth Booking Your Four Seasons Room Via Your Credit Card?

When you own a Platinum American Express credit card, you can book almost any Four Seasons hotel via Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. This appears to offer you similar benefits as when you would book a Four Seasons hotel through our own concierge, but it does not. Our room upgrade benefit is prioritized over Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts.

If you book through us, you are prioritized on an upgrade of one category based on availability at the time of check-in (this usually excludes suites). We put you at the front of the queue, so if there is just one room upgrade left, you will get the better room if you have booked with us before a guest who books via their Amex credit card.
