    Extra day option

    If you could extend your vacation by one day which of the following choices would you take? All of these choices are this amount because I have small credit with Expedia.The Hyatt at $167 (allows me to stay in same hotel), playa Linda at 108, Hilton at 67 and Holiday inn 22.

    I feel like a nomad this trip because I am using free rooms for more than half the trip. I currently have a day at the Hyatt, 2 at the Ritz and 2 at the Hilton. The Hilton room is the only one I paid for.

    I would stay at the Hyatt as moving for 1 day is a pia and I feel like 1 less move would give you a full day rather than a split up day.

    Hyatt. I'm with Jayshea on this one. Moving for a day is a pain.

    I just looked again and now the prices have jumped, in only an hour....Expedia/all the places jack up the prices if you don't buy it then...Hyatt is now 197, and each other room increased by a similar amount with the exception of the Playa. I am undecided what to do at this moment, I do hate the idea of moving, but 200 is no longer feeling close to free, lol.

    If you have to move I would go with the cheapest option- no brainier for me. I like the holiday inn's beds- very comfy!

    I would go for the cheapest but also by who has the earliest check in.

    Not sure Andrea as we always get a king bed when we stay at the HI (ocean tower)- most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in a hotel.

    Thanks for all the input. I am going to log in from work tomorrow and hope the prices are lower again, and I will book it then. If not, I will probably stick with my 5 nights. I like your idea ArubaAce- I was close to booking the Playa but I won't ever stay on the ground level, some love it but I would not at all.

    Thanks to all of you that weighed in. This is what I did in the end. I am going an extra day. I choose to use my Jet Blue points so my air cost me $17 for the trip instead of $175, down and I now have a small credit on SWA- I also choose the cheapest of the options for my extra day. With taxes the Hyatt was going to be over even with my credit $300, the Hilton was over $220 and the Playa was on the 1st floor which I refuse to stay on, so I purchased a night at the HI for $110 with my taxes included. So in the end I am staying 6 nights but in 4 different locations- The things I will do for an almost free trip to Aruba...sad, lol.
