Roving I Find: Business Meets Pleasure

I've been fortunate enough to stay in some nice places when I travel for business. And I'm pretty sure it was business travel that helped to "season" my taste for finer hotels. But now, when I travel on my dime, my preferred hotel star level still hovers somewhere between four and five when my desired per night price is closer to the two-star or three-star range.

I'm a Hotel Snob. I'll admit it. I like pristine, comfortable beds, opulent interiors, helpful staff and amazing amenities (Hello Mr. Spa). Two flash sales on Jetsetter this week offer all that and more at prices that please. Hotel Snob approved.

The Find:
  • Mondrian LA: If you're in LA, you might as well live it up on the iconic Sunset Boulevard. This deal knocks the nightly price to a digestible $210 for most dates through September. (The same room goes for $295 or more on Mondrian's site, depending on the dates.) The views from the rooftop pool are reason enough to stay here. 
  • Sofitel Philadelphia: Whether you're visiting "The City of Brotherly Love" for the Liberty Bell or Geno's Cheesesteaks, staying in style is easy and a lot more affordable through August, with rates as low as $130 per night. Two of Philly's major hot spots, Rittenhouse Square and the Walnut Street shopping district, are within easy walking distance.
