If you’ve got some wiggle room in your travel dates this year, consider this: Many U.S. cities’s hotel rates vary hundreds of dollars depending on the weeks and months that you book them in.
Hostels are great when you’re a college kid backpacking across Europe, but the no-frills approach can be a turn-off to those of us who like to shower more than once a week. With that in mind, a duo of new hotels in New York City offer shared accommodations with all the perks of a luxury hotel. While these bunks cost a bit more than you might pay in a traditional hostel, you’d be hard-pressed to find a backpacker’s haven with amenities like a spa, rooftop garden, or high-end linens.

Perched on the southern tip of Baja California, polished Cabo San Lucas is an unlikely choice for budget-friendly vacations. Reputed for its A-list celebrity sightings, world-class spas, and five-diamond villas, this small slice of paradise offers a surprising abundance to the frugal traveler. While Kim Kardashian might be kicking back in the $500/night private condo for the weekend, it’s not unusual to be right next door, taking in the serene beauty and warm Mexican hospitality from the privileged perch of secluded seaside suites and beachfront guestrooms, starting at just $68/night. Rates are priced during off-season travel and for advance bookings.
Undergoing renovations, the 286-guestroom Tesoro Los Cabos is a remnant of the sleepy, fishing town Cabo used to be, clambering to keep up with the high-end newcomers. Central to just about every downtown attraction, the resort sits on the marina boardwalk, with panoramic shots of the bay. Guestrooms start from a resourceful $68 per night for a city view category, and an optional all-inclusive plan adds about $41 per person, per night. While the lowest-category guestrooms are fairly low key with no special trimmings, the affordable suite rates (from $95/night) rake in the value for Tesoro. Visit Tesoro Los Cabos to book.
