"We're excited to offer our monthly Hotel Rate Report to help guide travelers to timely deals," said Clem Bason, president, Hotwire Group. "We're seeing excellent bargains on our site, particularly in Florida, where this is normally one of the busiest times of the year."

Tampa is seeing some of its best prices of the year and has something to offer almost everyone. Not only can you experience the high-speed rush of a roller-coaster at Busch Gardens, but nature lovers can take in Florida's wildlife at their own pace in Tampa's Canoe Escape and art aficionados can check out the Salvador Dali Museum in nearby St. Petersburg."

Hotwire is uniquely positioned to spot pricing trends throughout the hotel industry, and the Hotel Rate Report is the newest way Hotwire helps customers find the most timely hotel deals.
