Spend six nights in London this May with this Go-Today package (tel. 800/227-3235; www.go-today.com), which includes airfare from $1,249 per person.

The hotel, Queen's Park, is in Bayswater, near Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. You're close to two Tube stations -- Bayswater and Queensway -- and you're near Kensington Palace. Be sure to leave time for walks through the city's gardens and parks.

Why is this a deal? According to a Kayak search for midweek flights in early May, nonstop flight on British Airways will cost $802. Six nights at Queen's Park Hotel cost about £813 ($1,288), or $644 per person. If you booked this trip independently, expect to pay about $1,446 per person. This Go-Today package saves you at least $197.
