Tablet Introduces a True Private Sale

Jan 19, 2010, 11:00 ET from Tablet Hotels

NEW YORK, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- We are proud to announce the launch of our new Private Sale feature on, where we offer exclusively to Tablet Community Members dramatically reduced rates with inventory that spans several months. Because the rates in our private sale are so low, they cannot be made public, and Tablet Members have only 36 hours to book them.

Unlike other sites dedicated to Private Sales, access to the Tablet Private Sale is truly restricted. This allows us to feature discounts that our hotels cannot offer anywhere else, because their rate-parity agreements forbid them from undercutting the prices on offer at other online venues. Our private-sale rates are between 30% to 60% off the lowest rate available anywhere else on the internet.

It's no secret that the current trend toward discount luxury is an outgrowth of the global recession. According to conventional wisdom, luxury travel has been particularly hard-hit — one need look no further than the steep decline in average nightly rates at the hotels on the high end.

However, even in this climate, Tablet's revenues continue to grow, by more than 50% over 2009's figures. This is due to the integrity of our selection of stylish and boutique hotels with rates that start at $100 per night. It's also because Tablet made the decision to invest in a down cycle. As a result, Tablet's website and services continue to innovate and lead.
