This is why it’s not a waste of time to sit around, surfing the internet and wishing you could book your dream vacation in a near or far away land. Because sometimes you actually do find an amazing deal!
Over 200 lucky Sunday night armchair travelers managed to book a one cent weekend at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Venice East-Quarto D’Altino, which admittedly is located a brisk 20 minute train ride outside of Venice. But still in Italy!
Okay, maybe it isn’t the Hotel Danieli on the Piazza San Marco, but did you catch that part about a weekend stay for just one cent? For that price I think most of us would be delighted to take the commuter rail into Venice!
Even though the deal was posted by mistake, the Crowne Plaza is honoring the 1,400 room nights booked while it was up, costing the company about $130k. They will probably make up the difference in the positive publicity!
