If you scroll down to the bottom, you will notice that there is a Select Your Rate option.
To find out what each of these rates mean, we can hover over each option and read the description. I will hover over the Amazon Gift Card option.
If we select this rate, we can expect to receive an Amazon Gift Card with our reservation. The gift cards starts at $20 a piece and continues to increase as you spend more on your booking. Now I will hover over the Getaway Package.
This is what the Getaway Package option gives us a free $25 Amazon Gift Card, free WiFi, Free Parking and Free Room Upgrade. This is pretty sweet. I will click on this option.
With this option, these are the room types that we are offered with. We will click on the Standard Queen room option.
