Hey Savers, we found another great discount for our guys and gals in uniform. The Rosen Hotel and Resort group is offering 50 percent off rack room rates, and food and beverages for anyone in the U.S. Armed Forces for the rest of this year. After reading all the details, this has to be one of the best offers going for our military personnel.
The Rosen group is offering this at four of their Orlando properties:
Quality Inn International
Rodeway Inn International
Quality Inn Plaza
Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista
The first three are located on International Drive while the Comfort Inn is near Walt Disney World.
I went online and actually looked at the rates for the Comfort Inn. I was able to book a seven-night stay for less than $300 during the Forth of July weekend! That’s a great price. I have worked at some Disney resorts that charge more than that just for one night. If you combine this discount with the some of the other military honors that are being offered at some theme parks, you can save a lot of money.
You can get these great rates by calling 877-224-5377 or visit orlandohotels4less.com/military.
Thanks again to all our great military personnel and I hope you can take advantage of these great offers.
