The Real Deal: Round-trip airfare on American, three nights at the Westin Harbour Castle, and hotel taxes and fees, from $407 per person—plus about $70 in taxes.

When: Through Oct. 31, 2009.

Gateways: New York City; add $25 for Miami; $33 for Chicago; $83 for Dallas; $175 for Denver, San Francisco, Seattle; $205 for L.A.; additional gateways available.

The fine print: Does not include airport taxes and fees of about $70 per person. Based on double occupancy; single supplement is $225. A Saturday night stay is required. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.

Book by: Sept. 15, 2009.

Contact: American Airlines Vacations, 800/321-2121, aavacations.com.

Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $271 round-trip flight in mid-September (LAN). A three-night stay at the hotel would cost about $410 per person, all taxes included. So, booking independently, you would expect to pay about $681. This package costs $477 with all taxes included—a savings of $204.

More: Add nights from $75 per person per night.
