  • [Question] Cheapest you've stayed at a Disney Hotel

    Hello Gang,

    I am finally able to afford an annual pass and I hope to stay in an official Disneyland hotel at some point. I have heard from a friend that if you go to one of the hotels at closing time, you can get it fairly cheap because they want to fill the rules. Can any of you fine people tell me the cheapest you've paid to stay?

    Thank!

    Good luck with that.

    1988 we stayed at the DL hotel for $99.00. That was a "special" price back then.

      Look for group rates. If you go during Dapper Day, you can get steep discounts. I stayed at GCH last February for $200/night, last September I think was $225. Check out dapperday.com

        Paradise Pier for $120, but that was a couple of years ago.

            I stayed at Paradise Pier last fall and got 40% off the room for a military promotion. If I remember correctly I still shelled out around $150 per night because I had a park view room. I settled on Paradise Pier because it was the least expensive of the three.

              That is a fine line to walk. The hotel will not sell rooms to the end. They know you will want to sleep in it, and aren't going to sleep for a few hours after a long night. They have to have the room changed for the next guest and plan to do so. So they need some time and you do. The point is you don't know how late they will still be selling rooms, and if they ant to sell a low rate.

              At hotels were the desk agents have room to negotiate they may do so. At Disney they may not be able to do so. Also often they only negotiate down to rack rate which is the base rate that the hotel has chosen which can be far from 0.

              The Paradise Pier is the cheapest hotel and has 25% off in the winter, outside the holidays. Senior rates are the best that can be attained under normal circumstances if a senior is in the room.

                Disney hotels stop selling rooms at a certain point for the night? Odd if they do considering most hotels sell to they have nothing left.

                As to the OP questions, the lowest and only time I have stayed at a Disney Hotel was back in October 2010 for Halloween and I paid 149 for the night for a room over looking California Adventure. I was working for another hotel chain at the time, and the company I worked for was having a special promotion with Disney for various hotels.

                    When I called last month , they said they no longer offer Senior rates ,bummer. They suggested buying AP to get AP discounts

                      I believe that would be considered Spring and that the Winter promos would be over. Not to mention that is peak Spring Break time so I'm sure the hotels (Disney or good neighbor) will be full prince and/or close to full.

                        Negotiate 'down to rack rate'? FWIW... Rack Rate is the hotel's 'full price' or 'sticker price'. The non-discount price. Anything near rack rate in the context of this thread discussion would be a failure

                          My rack rate last night was 139.99 and I had 3 walk in's on my shift, since I do graves I never charge rack, I charged 79, 89, and 69 to my walk in's, now if it was my last room then no price discount, if I am full chances are everyone is in the area.

                          Side note. Franchise independent hotels will tend to have more leeway in negotiating rates then a corporate owned property. When I worked for a corporate managed Marriott, I had no room to lower rates, had to sell at whatever the computer said, at all the franchise independent run places I have worked at including my current one, rates are more flexible.

                          Also some hotels will match expedia and priceline rates if you call them so the hotel can avoid paying a commission and increase their revenue. For instance my hotel is currently 75/night on Expedia, of that 75, we get 56.00, and Expedia gets the rest. If someone calls ad asks for the Expedia rate, we have no issue matching it as 75 is better then 56 dollars.

                          What you see on priceline, expedia and the like is not what the hotel actually gets.

                            $150 a night at Grand Californian eight years ago this coming January. It was an AP promotion. Because of the reason we were there (my mom had just passed and one of her last requests were that my sister and I go and celebrate her life at her favorite place, DL) the CMs at the desk upgraded our room to a parkview suite when they heard about her request. We were so appreciative.

                              We got a rate of about $125 per night for a corner suite at the Disneyland Hotel two years ago, plus we got another night for half price... there was a note on the door offering us the half price night on the second day and we were in a position to take advantage of it.
