Hi Dave
I missed out on free dining for my dates (Nov 10-17) but was wondering what the chances of a room rate deal are. I notice that my vacation dates are within the range of historical discount dates but my check-in date falls on a weekend that will likely be blacked out. Is the room discount promo similar to the free dining promo in that, in order to qualify, your check-in date must coincide with a date that’s eligible… or would the discount apply for the remaining days of my stay (after the blacked out weekend)?

Hi Jim, the room rate deals are quite different. They apply not based on check in but on the night of stay. So if you get the deal, you’ll get it on the eligible nights, and not get it the other nights of your stay. The details of last year’s deal are here.
