A Bunch of Underpriced Hotel Rooms

I’ve written in the past about Luxury Travel Diary hotel auctions. Unfortunately I frequently forget to check them. Somehow they manage to get great rooms to auction off, and not enough people bidding so — with no reserve — rooms often go for a lot less than I think they should.

There are a bunch of auctions that end Monday, for instance:

Here are a couple of Andaz stays that end a week later.

In fact there are a disproportionate number of Hyatt properties available through the site including in Tokyo, Singapore, Taiwan, Ho Chi Minh City, Delhi, Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.

Luxury Travel Diary auctions are conducted in British pounds, and the pound is weak too. Ending shortly is a week-long stay in Phuket that’s pricing at 205 pounds (US$249) as of this writing.

And while the end of the auction is too far off to know whether it’ll go cheap, this will be of interest to many, two nights at the Hyatt Regency Maui.

These auctions are definitely one to keep in your quiver, and check back on from time to time for deals.

  1. Hey Gary, would I earn Hyatt night stay with these bookings? As we all know third party bookings do not qualify normally.

  2. This is just like watching cars on eBay auctions. A week before the close, the price is cheap, the hour leading up to close…not so cheap.

  3. How recent are these? Because 400 GBP is nowhere near 616 USD. I haven’t seen such a horrible exchange rate in years!
