Travel “influencers” seeking freebies are the scourge of the earth. We’re not talking about celebrated experts, or frankly, anyone with knowledge at all. These are the people who have wrangled, conned (or faked) social media followers in hopes of being cooler than you, by not paying for their travels. Of course, if they had an actual brand with millions of readers and some knowledge, they’d get invited, not ask (wink, wink). In fact, some even insist on being paid, in addition to the freebies. Uber chic, cool brand “The Standard” has had enough, and their new sale is an amusing ode to influencers.

The Standard is out with a 40% off sale at all their hotels. That’s fantastic, because their hotel digs are amazing and offer some of the best bars and pools around. From London to New York, LA and Miami there are great hotels and with 40% off, the prices are tough to argue with. Just wait until you see the promo photos. If you follow “influencers” on social media, you already know the secret sale code. It’s “LinkInBio”.

The Juicy Details

This amusing Standard Hotels rate is available until December 31st, 2018 for stays from December 11th (that’s today, by the way) until March 31st, 2019. Combine these great rates with a good flight deal and you’ve got one heck of a vacation at an appetizing price. It’s tough to decide between the untouchable “Top Of Standard” bar in NYC, or the glorious pool in Downtown Los Angeles. Wherever you go, 40% off should help keep you there.

How To Book

Just click this link. Be sure your dates match up with the dates offered above and start searching. It’s a whole lot easier than sending an email to their PR department and asking if your followers constitute a free night or an upgrade. There’s only two words that will get you an upgrade, and those two words are “credit” and “card”.

  1. I used to go to the rooftop deck at the Standard in Downtown LA. Trendy spot in the middle of LA. For years, it was the only go-to place in Downtown LA. With LA Live and others sprouting up in recent years, the crowd has started to venture to newer locations.
