Travel by: Select dates through June 30

The deal: Frugal travelers who are unwilling to relinquish their upscale accommodation desires when visiting the cosmopolitan San Francisco Bay Area this spring don’t need to fret anymore.

Our producers are always on the lookout for extraordinary deals and spotted rock-bottom nightly rates at the AAA Four-Diamond Westin Palo Alto hotel located on the fringes of the scenic San Francisco Bay near Stanford University. Weekend prices have been drastically reduced to $129/night through June (most dates reflect a price of $149/night).

This is still an incredible bargain considering rates in July for the same room category start at an eye-popping $401/night.

About the hotel: Just a stone’s throw away from highly-regarded Stanford University, the Mediterranean-style Westin Palo Alto contains 184 well-designed guestrooms, every one of which is outfitted with a 32-inch flat-screen television, an iPod docking station, and comfy bathrobes. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s heated outdoor pool, fitness center, and fresh California cuisine in its Restaurant Soleil.

The dollars: Rates are based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch: $5 cover charge at Stanford University parties not included.
