Take the Train, Save a Bundle
Taking the train instead of flying saves a bundle in fossil fuels. But if you check into a Kimpton hotel, it'll save you a bundle of money too. As the DT reported Monday, a number of Kimpton-branded properties from San Francisco to Boston are offering 20 percent off their best available rates to any guests who show up with a train ticket in hand. You can find the full list of hotels that will honor this deal from now through December on Kimpton's Web site. At the Hotel Monaco in Portland, Oregon for example, you can reserve a deluxe room for $151, 20 percent less than the regular rate of $190--and the hotel will throw in free cab fare back to the train station. Such a good deal, we had to mention it again. So click over to Amtrak and consider riding the rails to your next vacation.
