    Heading to Louisville (Kentucky Expo Center) in the spring. Since the Air Hub is in the immediate vicinity, I was wondering if there are any deals for UPS employees at the local hotels apart from the UPSers site.

    Whenever I travel I will reserve online to get the best deal; however, if it is a last minute overnight trip, I will show both my UPS ID card and AAA card to get their discounted rate.

    Stay up around the West end. Might be some cheap crack houses around there. Just don't venture out of your room.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    Try the Crowne Plaza that is by the expo center. When I do overnight runs to SDFAS that's where UPS puts us up.

    I think the weekend rate for UPS is in the mid $60 range so that's a number to shoot for when you call.

    $60/night at the Crowne Plaza? Do they put you on a cot in the janitor's closet?

    Some of the corporate discounts companies give out are insane.

    Not going during K Durby week but they are still completely booked up. All supply and demand. I believe the Crown Plaza wanted $285 per night while they still had rooms. Thanks for the tip though. I am probably going to have to book 20 minutes east for a decent room under $140 a night.
