What staycation deals are on offer?
I’ve compiled a comprehensive article detailing the various staycation deals available, a list which gets updated daily as more packages come in.
In the post you’ll also find some tips on finding the best rates, as well as what you can expect during your staycation.
What will the staycation experience be like?
The STB has published an extensive list of regulations that hotels must comply with before they can accept staycation guests.
I’ve covered the details here, but you can expect things like:
- Staggered check-in/out timings
- Capacity constraints on pool and gym usage
- Contactless delivery of room service and other amenities
- Modified club lounge happy hours
- No breakfast buffets
It won’t be the same as it was before, but you can expect smaller crowds and an almost religious devotion to cleanliness.
While most of the approved hotels so far are in the mid-priced to luxury range, it’s good to see some lower budget options getting added. It’s possible to find sub-$100 rates (before taxes and service charge) at the Hotel NuVe, Hotel YAN and The Quay Hotel for example, which gives more options to those looking for a cheaper staycation.
