You've got the airfare portion of your trip all squared away. Now there's the little matter of where to stay, and what it'll cost you. Hotel packages often seem the way to go, but how do you discern the real deals from the no-deals? Here's a new site, fresh on our radar, specializing in just that: DealBase.com. Package perks and frills (such as transfers, parking, spa treatments, that sort of thing) are tallied up to reveal and compare actual savings vs. cost a la carte. And, as we've recently discovered, it's a great place to send finicky relatives constantly threatening to pay you a visit. Just kidding, Mom and Dad! You guys are always welcome in our elfin-sized Brooklyn studio. I'll just put a sleeping bag down over the rat traps. I don't mind. The rat doesn't mind. It's fine!
