‘Tis the season for cooling temperatures and white-hot hotel deals. For many destinations in North America, fall is the slowest travel season, which is excellent news for families looking for a getaway at a bargain price. What does a real bargain look like these days? Here are five special offers at kid-friendly hotels that deliver savings of at least 25 percent. Carpe diem.

1. Four Seasons Resort: Santa Barbara, Calif.


Landing a free night in a nice hotel is awesome enough, but landing one at a luxury resort translates to a much bigger win. Nestled next to Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara, the plush Four Seasons Resort, The Biltmore offers horseback riding, tennis, croquet, mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, and a Kids For All Seasons program for children ages 5 to 12.

The Deal: Stay two nights and you’ll get your third for free with the Stay Longer offer, available through March 31, 2014.

2. Loews Hotels: Nationwide

The only thing better than a fabulous hotel deal is a fab deal with a lo-o-ong booking window. The mid-priced Loews Hotels chain has long wooed families with its spacious guest rooms, Fisher-Price lending library, Loews Loves Kids activity program for ages 4 to12, and killer locations, such as LoewsCoronado Bay Resort near San Diego, LoewsHotel Philadelphia, and Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson.

The Deal: Save up to 30 percent off the best rate when you select the Third Night’s the Charm promo and stay three or more nights at any Loews property, with the exception of the three Loews properties at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. Available through Dec. 30, 2014.

3. Fontainebleau Resort: Miami Beach, Fla.

The oh-so-glamorous Fontainebleau Resort commands a stunning stretch of Miami Beach waterfront and offers 12 restaurants, 10 pools, and an activities program for kids ages 4 to 12.

The Deal: The resort’s Fall for Bleau package includes a third free night—a straight 33 percent discount—plus a $50 food and beverage credit. Book by October 31 for travel through Nov. 3; use promo code FFB.

4. Smugglers’ Notch: Jeffersonville, Vt.

One of the best kid-friendly ski resorts in the country, Smugglers’ Notch also rolls out a brilliant gold-and-red carpet for families during Vermont’s fall foliage season with nature hikes, mini golf, swimming, and an award-winning kid’s program.

The Deal: Book the AutumnFest Package for a fall getaway and get your fourth night free. Book and stay by October 14, 2013.

5. Sheraton Vistana Villages: Orlando, FL

The all-villa Sheraton Vistana Villages offers roomy digs with kitchenettes, four swimming pools, and a central location on Orlando’s I-Drive near major theme parks.
