WINTER TRAVEL BARGAINS SAVE TRAVELERS HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS; PROMOTIONS INCLUDE FREE NIGHT STAYS AND A CADILLAC

 DALLAS, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Hotel Reservations Network (HRN) announced today that hotels across the country are offering money-saving promotions geared to increase business. Most of the major chains including Hilton, Holiday Inn, Hyatt, Marriott, Days Inn, Stouffer and Radisson have created special programs ranging from free night stays to complimentary breakfasts to a free Cadillac.
 "Hotels have seen thousands of rooms laying vacant and have created the programs in hopes of filling them," said travel expert Bob Diener, president of Hotel Reservations Network, a free discount hotel booking service. "Travelers can save hundreds of dollars by taking advantage of the various promotions, most of which have special names such as Hilton's BounceBack Weekends. If you don't ask for the promotion by name," said Diener, "some hotels will not offer the discounts."
 According to Diener, the "savvy traveler" should look for a hotel which is offering a free night stay which can save them as much as a $100. Hyatt is offering a free night in its Fall for Hyatt Resorts promotion at select properties and is good through Dec. 15. For more information call 800-233-1234. Outrigger is also offering a free night when you stay six consecutive nights at 24 participating hotels. The offer is good through Dec. 18. For reservations call 800-733-7777. Travelers will also receive a free night at participating Wyndham hotels with its Day at the Beach program through May 31, 1994. For details call 800-822-4200.
 There are some unique programs being offered as well. For example, some hotels are "paying" its guests to stay with them. Stouffer will give guests certificates towards U.S. savings bonds, good for as much as a $1,000 bond. Days Inn is giving its corporate clients a $5 rebate plus a chance to win the use of a Cadillac for one year compliments of Alamo Rent A Car in its Save a Lincoln, Win a Cadillac promotion.
 "Many of the promotions are good for weekend travel and are geared to the leisure traveler," said Diener. However, for savings every day, for as much as 65 percent off the regular rate, business and leisure travelers can take advantage of HRN's free booking service in major cities worldwide: New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco,
