5 Hotel deals for February 29, 2012

In case you haven’t noticed, 2012 is a leap year. This means that the human-created calendar year is trying to catch up with the astronomical year by adding an extra day – Feb. 29 – to the calendar. So what does this mean? Leap year hotel deals, of course! Here are some of my favorites.

Rancho Bernardo Inn, San Diego

Mention the words “leap year” when making reservations at Rancho Bernardo Inn and you’ll get 29 percent off for the night of Feb. 29. If you were born on the date, then the San Diego inn sweetens the deal by giving you that night free! Plus, the onsite Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant is offering a three-course meal for $29, and also on-deck is a 29 percent discount on spa treatments and round of golf at its championship course. In total, there are 45 holes of golf at Rancho Bernardo including the Resort Course, which is the only course in San Diego to have hosted both PGA and LPGA TOUR events.
