Hotwire is offering a fantastic deal on last-minute hotel stays around the holiday week surrounding July 4. Participating cities include New York, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, Washington DC and Orlando. The $49/night deal is valid for the first two nights of any double-occupancy hotel stay between between June 26th to July 8th, 2018, and must be booked through Hotwire for participating Hot Rate hotels, while supplies last. Valid for travel June 26 – July 8, 2018, limited to one booking per person. Prices do not include taxes or resort fees, which can go up to $50 per night. The hotel will be revealed after booking is complete.

Since this is a Hotwire Hot Rate deal, all bookings are final; no refunds or changes are allowed and you generally won’t earn loyalty points or get elite status perks on OTA hotel bookings.

However, the booking promotion can be stacked with cash back shopping portals such as Active Junky, which is offering 9% cash back as of the time of this post.
