Default Hotel discount codes

The bride does not want to get up at 3am to get to Moffitt by 6:00am in a few days. I've been told to book a room nearby or face the dreaded "Purple Nurple" amongst other things....so It's a hotel room for us.
I'm going to be booking the Hampton Inn & Suites down the road from Moffitt. Seems like a nice place, but cheapest I could find is $128.00 for the night, with taxes and fee's total comes out to $154.00 Just to sleep %$#@&":*%^$#^*&( I'm NOT happy.

Anyone know how to find a decent coupon code that's legit. I've googled that but everyone wants your email address which I won't give out.

Thanks!

no code needed. Call them now, you will get a pushover from another country that answers the phone. Don't call the lobby of the hotel you want to stay at, call their 800 number. Tell them their rates are too high and you need a better price. If they ask you if you are a member of one of their discount groups, say yes to all of them (they never ask for proof). Be somewhat aggressive and don't take the first discounted rate they offer, they will usually go lower than their first offer. This works for airlines too, Late at night is crucial, having a couple of drinks down your neck while you do it helps too. If you don't get good results from the first one you talk to, hang up and call again to get another person. I have a 100% success rate doing this, yup seriously.

Needed three calls but worked with the third person. I've not seen a room at this place advertised for less than $126.00 per night, and with all the taxes and fee's the total came out to something like $154.00

Called and told them I needed a much lower rate and gave the third person all the hotels around them with much lower rates and after telling them I was going elsewhere and yada yada.... "Boom"....$96.00 with all taxes and fee's.

Thank you very much "tenacious1" for the advise. Your screen name certainly fits!

I hope everything goes well at the Moffitt Center. Keep fighting and stay encouraged.

My wife also went to Moffit when she was battling stage 3 breast cancer. The people there are incredible and made her feel like they were all her friends. One of her Oncologist gave us her personal cell number to contact her if we needed anything. We can not say enough good things about that place.

Good luck to your wife. Mine is going on 8 years as a survivor.

Ex for next week:
sheraton 0.1mi from Moffitt is $98
hampton on 7th ave 1.7mi from moffitt is $95

Spray, ask different hotels if they have a discount for medical stays. My parents stayed close to the cancer center which is an hour away. They asked a few different hotels if they gave discounts bc they would be staying 5 days a week for 3 weeks. Hampton in cut the rates 50%. Its worth a try.

Thanks so much, but we're only staying one night the 28th of May. The consultation appt is on the 29th. Bride didn't want to wake up at 3.00am to be there.

If we need an extended stay I will certainly keep you in mind.

I've done this in the past up in Rockchester NY, but only staying one night here. I saved $55.00 bucks and we get free breakfast. My bride likes Hampton Inns as well, inside rooms, safer.

Working on getting them all the records, what a pain in the ass.

That was for a 1 night stay, I just picked a date next week because I didn't know your dates. The 28th isn't available for them anymore though.
