Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday are ideal times to book a hotel room, since most hotels and booking sites offer special low rates to celebrate the season.
Tip — Based on what we saw last year, some of the best deals will be at luxury resorts and all-inclusive getaways.
Early Black Friday hotel deals
Some of our favorite hotel deals going on right now include:

When can I start shopping?
While some hotels release deals in the week leading up to Black Friday, the best prices are usually on Black Friday itself — November 27th, starting at midnight. Deals will likely continue through the weekend and Cyber Monday.
Hotels are also known for offering deals on Travel Tuesday, the day after Cyber Monday. But if you see a hotel rate that’s too good to pass up, you might want to snap it up before it’s gone.

What to expect
Most hotels haven’t released specifics about Black Friday deals yet, but in 2019 we saw deals of up to 75% off. To book a Black Friday hotel deal, you’ve got two options — directly through the hotel, or through a third-party site like Expedia, Orbitz or TripAdvisor. We recommend checking in with both, to see where the best deals are.
That said, sites like Expedia are known for offering sitewide coupons on Black Friday, so be sure to compare prices before booking to make sure you’re on the right track.
To give you a better idea of what to expect, here’s a roundup of some of our favorite 2019 deals on third-party sites:
Booking.com. 40% off hotel bookings.
Expedia.75% off select hotels. Sitewide coupon for 25% off hotels.
Orbitz. Up to 50% off select hotel bookings, 15% off sitewide hotel bookings and exclusive package deals.

Staying in hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic
While the pandemic has dampened travel across the globe, most hotel chains have heightened hygiene and safety measures — like cleaning surfaces with hospital-grade disinfectants, providing bag breakfasts and requiring masks — to help slow the spread of COVID-19. And many hotels, including Marriott, allow guests to change or cancel their reservation up to 24 hours before check-in without penalty.
Keep in mind the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)states that travel of any kindincreases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Do not travel if you feel sick or have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
