Luxury Travel Deals

Imagine paying $390 a night for a 3,000 sq ft vacation home with a hot tub and fireplace at the Resort at Paws Up outside of Missoula, Montana in May. This is a perfect high-class getaway at prices that make it easier to travel in style without designer costs.

Jetsetter.com is a private online community that provides members with insider access, expert knowledge, and exclusive deals on the world's greatest vacations. Sales last five to seven days and offered on a first come, first served basis.

The weak economy has played into creating more savings opportunities for customers since occupancy is not what they used to be. One of the reasons they are able to offer such low rates is because the rates aren’t public for anyone to see on the internet.

To become a member on Jetsetter, you must either be invited by another member or submit your name to be placed on a waiting list. Sign up here.

Consider Gansevoort Miami, one of the beautiful-people hotels that Miami is famous for and features a celebrated rooftop bar and pool. On Jetsetter, the Deluxe City View room, which houses four, costs $135 a night. A recent search for the same property and dates on Expedia and Hotels.com yielded a rate of $215.

Perhaps it is time to take that vacation of your dreams.

Boston is the twenty-first largest city in the country and tenth-largest metropolitan area. One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston is a center for medicine and higher education with schools such as Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Boston University. Boston is also home to four major sports teams (Celtics, Patriots, Bruins, and Red Sox).

I visited Boston because I wanted to watch a baseball game at the historic Fenway Park and be a part of Red Sox Nation. Tickets are hard to come by but I registered in February for the random drawing for ticket purchase opportunities for the Green Monster, Budweiser Right Field Roof Deck, and the New York Yankees. I got lucky and was able to purchase Green Monster Standing Room tickets to a Friday night interleague game against the Atlanta Braves.

I arrived on late Thursday evening at Logan International Airport and took a taxi to the Marriott Courtyard at Copley Square. The cab fare was $25. Copley Square in located in the Back Bay neighborhood near Fenway and a stop on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Green Line subway.

Nearly a third of Bostonians use public transit for their commute to work. The MBTA operates what was the first underground rapid transit (T) system in the United States and is now the fourth busiest rapid transit system in the country.

Friday, I walked to Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe for pancakes and eggs. The wait was about 5 minutes and the portions were huge. Next, I took the T and visited Bunker Hill, the USS Constitution, and walked along the Freedom Trail. For lunch, I stopped at Union Oyster House for oysters and Neptune for a lobster roll. Then, I ordered a cannoli from Mike’s Pastry. That was all delicious. Never think about calories on vacation.

I met up a fellow colleague after work and walked to Fenway Park. The atmosphere is unlike any other ballpark especially Yawkee Way. Although they did not win, the experience on top of the Green Monster was incredible.

The next day I toured the Sam Adams Brewery, another Boston favorite. I got to sample five different beers and take home a souvenir glass. After the tour, I took the T to Harvard Square and walk around the campus. To say the least, I was not too impressed by the campus. There is no famous landmark or building to be found. I hopped back on the T and headed to Boston Common.

Boston Common is a 50 acre park and next to the Public Garden where there are many beautiful flowers. This is a popular place for families and kids. I walked down Newbury Street, which has lots of department stores and shops, back towards the hotel.

Before flying home, I had brunch at Aquitaine French Bistro. This place is reservation only but I got lucky because they had a few cancellations and no shows. I ordered an omelette off the Prix Fixe Brunch menu. They had a $9.95 special from 10-11a on Sundays.

I will be coming back to Beantown.

San Francisco is a popular international tourist destination known for its steep hills, the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, and Chinatown. One third of commuters use public transportation in the form of cable cars, trolleys, commuter rail, light rail, and buses.

On day 1, I arrived at San Francisco International Airport and took BART ($8.10) to Union Square. Department stores, hotels, and the theater district surround the plaza for several blocks. I stayed at Parc 55 Hotel which I booked via Hotwire for $90 per night.

The next day I took the trolley to Castro for sandwiches at Ike’s Place featured on the Man v. Food TV show. You can purchase a 1-day, 3-day, or 7-day passport for unlimited rides on all public transit besides BART. After lunch, I made my way to Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39.

Pier 39 is home to many Sea Lions. Instead of touring Alcatraz, I made a reservation with Adventure Cat and sailed the bay on a Catamaran. This was a great opportunity to see Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the San Francisco Skyline. Mention the discount on myBart.org and receive $5 off.

Later in the afternoon, I stopped by the famous Golden Gate Bakery in Chinatown and then traveled to Oakland for an Athletics/Twins baseball game. Everywhere I go, I try to attend at least one sporting event and take in the venue.

On the last day, I had Dim Sum at Yank Sing. It was the most I ever paid for Dim Sum but the food was good. Then, I took the cable car north to walk Lombard and the renowned crooked street, always popular with the tourists. I spent the majority of the day in Union Square doing some shopping and enjoying a few drinks with friends from the area.

You do not need to rent a car in San Francisco unless you are going to Napa. Public transportation is efficient and safe. I would advise people to be careful walking around in some areas especially at night. There are a fair amount of homeless folks.

Next stop Seattle and Vancouver.
