Forty is the new 20 when it comes to hotel discounts during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. This year, many top hotels and resorts are slashing room prices 40% to 50% rather than the more tepid 20% of years past.
The day after Thanksgiving and the following Monday have become the traditional sweet spot for bargain hunters, and hotels are no exception. Shop around and you’re bound to find a deal at your favorite resort.
Here are 18 hotel deals in the West that offer savings that are reason enough to go.
