Here's a new one: Live a few days in a hotel without housecleaning, and shave a few dollars off your bill.
Most hotels leave guests the option of having their sheets and towels changed daily, but the Marmara Manhattan, a luxury hotel on New York City's Upper East Side, has taken things a step further. Customers who agree to sign up for housekeeping only once every three days get a $20 per night discount. Housekeeping services include a thorough cleaning and fresh linens and towels.
The hotel's new "green rate" applies to stays of three days or longer. Rates for weekend stays in April start at $239 for a one-bedroom suite.
