Halloween’s almost here and its time to plan ahead for where you’re going to spend this ghastly night of ghouls and ghosts.

Rates at the Universal Studios L.A. hotel start as low as $139, and are valid now through December 25.
2. Las Vegas- Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Vegas can be frightening enough without costumes, but come Halloween and the city melts into a devious costume party cloaked in sin. From now through December 23, the Hard Rock Hotel is offering discount rates of up to 40 percent, giving you a place to gear up for the festivities. Rates start at $41 midweek and $71 on weekends, with stays at the Paradise Tower starting at $53.
