Trinidad Carnival 2012: Early Bird Hotel Rates for The Kapok Hotel and The Normandie!

I have hotel rates for 2012 for the Normandie and Kapok.  They are running specials of getting it at 2011 rates if you book by either the 30th for the Kapok or August 31 for the Normandie.  Waiting to hear back from the Hilton.

Normandie cheapest double (with early bird special): $223/night, 5 nights minimum ($1,115 total); taxes included; buffet breakfast included Monday 2/20/2012 to Wednesday 2/22/2012

Hotel Normandie


Normandie deposit requirements: 50% of entire stay down ($557.50) by August 31, 2011

Kapok cheapest double (with early bird special): $1,450 for any 5 nights between Wednesday 2/15/2012 and Wednesday 2/22/2012; taxes included; buffet breakfast included Saturday - Wednesday

Kapok Hotel

Kapok Hotel


Kapok deposit requirements: 1 night down ($290) by June 30, 2011.

I am thinking since the 30th is around the corner and the Kapok is actually more expensive, the Hotel Normandie is a better bet.

HOWEVER I am sure this will be sold out at these rates if you wait until the deadline...book now and get your flights ASAP!  Need my help? http://eloquence-inc.blogspot.com/p/eloquence-inc-trinidad-carnival-trip.html

Eloquence, Inc. Is #Mobile!

Wow just signed in to a notice that I can now activate the beta version of my blog optimized for mobile phone viewing!  Glad the powers that be at Blogger figured out we need that readily and automatically available because I can't tell you how many times I asked a friend to check out something on here and the response was about some issue with the (rather graphics-heavy) site loading to a mobile phone!

Progression, yes!
